  1. Neuroscientists demonstrate revolutionary new way of mapping the brain at single-neuron resolutionRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Aug 19 | Medical News

    Neuroscientists today publish in Neuron details of a revolutionary new way of mapping the brain at the resolution of individual neurons, which they have successfully demonstrated in the mouse brain. The new method, called MAPseq , makes it possible in a single experiment to trace the long-range projections of large numbers of individual neurons from a specific region or regions to wherever they lead in the brain - in experiments that are many times less expensive, labor-intensive and time-consuming than current mapping technologies allow.

  2. New book from Cold Spring Harbor examines major antibiotics and mechanisms of resistanceRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Aug 18 | Medical News

    One of the greatest medical accomplishments of the past century was the introduction of antibiotics into the clinic. However, the use of these lifesaving drugs rapidly led to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens, which have become increasingly difficult and expensive to eradicate.

  3. Researchers discover new signaling events that trigger metastasis in ovarian cancer cellsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 10, 2016 | Medical News

    Like pancreatic cancer, cancer of the ovaries is notorious for being discovered at a relatively late stage - after it has spread to other sites in the body. It is not called "the silent killer" for nothing.

  4. Researchers demonstrate simple approach to prove how classes of new drugs workRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 5, 2016 | Medical News

    A collaborative effort by cancer researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and chemists at Boehringer Ingelheim , a pharmaceutical firm, has resulted in the identification of a new drug target in leukemia and creation of a candidate drug that hits the target. Perhaps even more important, the research demonstrates a new, highly accurate way of proving how this and certain other classes of drugs work -- extremely valuable information in the risky business of drug development.

    Jun 17, 2016 | Medical News

    In summer 2011, University of Colorado Cancer Center investigators Joaquin Espinosa, PhD, and Matthew Galbraith, PhD, taught a summer symposium on gene expression at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Long Island, New York. As part of the three-week course, one of their students, Joel Perrez-Perri from Dr. Pablo Wappner's lab at the Instituto Leloir in Buenos Aires, Argentina, presented data from experiments on fruit flies describing the role of the histone acetyl-transferase TIP60 in regulating the expression of genes controlled by a protein known as HIF1A.

  6. New study finds genetic overlap between bipolar disorder and autismRead the original story w/Photo

    May 5, 2016 | Medical News

    A new study suggests there may be an overlap between rare genetic variations linked to bipolar disorder and those implicated in schizophrenia and autism. The study, by researchers at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and published recently in JAMA Psychiatry , adds to the growing understanding that many psychiatric diseases share genetic roots, but is among the first to suggest a genetic overlap between bipolar disorder and autism.

    May 3, 2016 | Medical News

    Structural biologists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Janelia Research Campus/HHMI, have obtained snapshots of the activation of an important type of brain-cell receptor. Dysfunction of the receptor has been implicated in a range of neurological illnesses, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, depression, seizure, schizophrenia, autism, and injuries related to stroke.

  11. Novel drug shows promise against metastatic breast cancer in mouse modelsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 12, 2016 | Medical News

    A doctor treating a patient with a potentially fatal metastatic breast tumor would be very pleased to find, after administering a round of treatment, that the primary tumor had undergone a change in character - from aggressive to static, and no longer shedding cells that can colonize distant organs of the body. Indeed, most patients with breast and other forms of cancer who succumb to the illness do so because of the cancer's unstoppable spread.
