Researchers suggest that identifying new treatments for autoimmune diseases requires studying the immune system AND target tissues together.
Associate Professor Pandurangan Vijayanand from La Jolla Institute for Immunology discusses his study into the body’s immune response to SARS-CoV-2 and why this can vary.
Researchers have been tracking SARS-CoV-2 by sequencing the genomes of virus samples collected from diagnostic testing. They hope that using next generation sequencing (NGS) on SARS-CoV-2 will help to accurately diagnose the novel coronavirus, identify mutations and track its history. This article explores the findings of their latest study and…
After viral pneumonia in elderly mice, there is an accumulation of dysfunctional tissue-resident memory T cells in the lungs which scientists suggest may drive chronic inflammation and fibrosis.
According to a new study, the SARS-CoV-2 virus is accumulating genetic mutations, including one called D614G which may have made it more contagious.
Hannah Balfour explores how genetic variation in G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and the proteins that regulate the duration of G protein signalling could be contributing to disease and people’s divergent responses to the same therapeutics.
Study reveals which neurons are most affected by epilepsy, presenting novel targets for seizure drug discovery and development.

In this on-demand webinar, we explored the various methods of COVID-19 testing: qPCR, COVID-seq, antigen and antibody detection, and others. Coupling these assays with low volume, high speed automation has made great strides toward achieving the high-throughput testing essential to ending this pandemic.
New findings suggest that late-onset Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is driven by epigenetic changes in the brain.
There are currently no licenced pharmaceuticals to treat cocaine addiction. To overcome this issue, US researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have been exploring how cocaine alters transcription in the nucleus accumbens, a region of the brain implicated in compulsive drug use. Here, Hannah Balfour discusses with Dr…
Genomics England has launched a next-generation genomic research platform that will play a key role in the response to COVID-19. It is hoped this research environment will transform how genomic data is made usable for global biopharma and academic scientists, providing world‑class patient data security, while enabling the flexibility required…
