UNC Lineberger discovery would allow researchers to fine-tune activity of cancer-hunting immune cells
Researchers led by UNC Lineberger’s Gianpietro Dotti, MD, reported new findings about the regulation of co-stimulatory molecules that could be used to activate cancer-killing immune cells – chimeric antigen receptor T-cells, or CAR-T. The molecules could also be used to decrease the activity of these cells.

A single atom controls motility required for bacterial infection
Researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill have discovered that a single atom – a calcium, in fact – can control how bacteria walk. The finding identifies a key step in the process by which bacteria infect their hosts, and could one day lead to new drug targets to prevent infection.
