A study co-led by a UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researcher has identified genomic changes in head and neck cancers linked to the sexually transmitted disease HPV -- the latest finding of a collaborative scientific effort designed to map out the genomic changes driving cancer.
For the first time, UNC neuroscientist Garret Stuber, PhD, imaged activity patterns of individual brain cells in freely moving mice to link specific basic behaviors to particular neurons.
This spring, catch one or all of the Research Hub @ HSL’s six-part series on systematic reviews. The sessions will provide an introduction and walk attendees through topic refinement, power searching, tracking references, study selection and presentation of results.
UNC geneticists led by Terry Magnuson, PhD, and Ron Chandler, PhD, create the first mouse model of ovarian clear cell carcinoma; show how a known drug can suppress tumor growth.
UNC researchers find that the bigger the differences in brain activity related to emotion regulation, the more severe the autism. Gabriel Dichter, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry and psychology was the paper's senior author.
Sometimes patients with coclear implants need to have a second or "revision" implantation surgery because of device failure. A new UNC study finds that adults age 65 and older do just as well in speech perception after revision cochlear implantation as those younger than 65.
The research by Zhen Gu, PhD, assistant professor in the UNC-NCSU joint department of biomedical engineering, aims to improve methods for delivering precise amounts of medications less frequently.
Past winners include six scientists who went on to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
Postpartum depression (PPD) may have a diverse clinical presentation and this has critical implications for diagnosis, treatment and understanding the underlying biology of the illness, a new study finds.
Graduate student Kathleen Mulvaney investigates the newly discovered interplay between two of the proteins that allow cells to divide.
Researchers in the joint UNC-NCSU biomedical engineering department have used nanoscale graphene to improve upon traditional delivery of two cancer drugs.
Dr. Patrick Sullivan of UNC is a co-author of a study that is ranked No. 5 on a Best of 2014 list compiled by Dr. Tom Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health.
The National Institute of Mental Health director Tom Insel recognized Byran L. Roth, MD, PhD, for his innovative research tool.
UNC School of Medicine researcher David Margolis, MD, was one of the first researchers to resist the common view that HIV is an incurable infection
William A. Fischer II and David Wohl are taking part in a clinical trial at ELWA Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia, in which plasma from survivors of Ebola virus disease is given to patients who are battling the disease.
Graduate student Orrin Stone is creating molecular tools to pinpoint how and when cellular pathways trigger cell movement – or, in cancer, metastasis.
The common chemotherapy drug topotecan disrupts a gene integral for neuron communication, though the effects are reversible. The research also homes in on an underlying cause of autism.
To support the NIH BRAIN Initiative, Garret Stuber, PhD, will use a new kind of microscope to further his lab’s investigation of brain circuits related to obesity.
Garret Stuber, PhD, earns a UNC Hettleman prize for his research and promise as a young scientist uncovering the inner workings of the brain.
A study led by John R. Stephens, MD, finds that simple interventions, consisting of a change in computerized order set and presentation of evidence and data from group practice, led to significant improvement in the assessment and treatment of vitamin D deficiency in elderly patients with hip fracture.
