  2. Past memory cues help people juggle numerous pieces of informationRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Sep 5 | EurekAlert!

    IMAGE: Edward Ester, Ph.D., lead author, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology in FAU's Charles E. Schmidt College of Science, and a member of the FAU Brain Institute.... view Many everyday tasks require people to represent and combine information from multiple sources. For example, when a person checks the rearview mirror while driving it is important that they maintain information about how far they are from the car in front of them.


  3. The sugar wars: Rhetoric or reason?Read the original story w/Photo

    Sunday Aug 26 | EurekAlert!

    Over the past 50 years researchers, clinicians, professional organizations, and health charities have waged war on sugar, calling for dietary recommendations to be changed and for a sugar tax on soft drinks and sweet treats in an effort to reduce obesity and cardiovascular diseases. In 2014, the WHO recommended that adults and children reduce their daily intake of free sugars to less than ten percent of their total energy intake.


  4. New strategy for cancer therapy spells double trouble for tumorsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 24, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    July 25, 2018 - Scientists at Scripps Research have uncovered a new strategy to kill tumors, including some triple-negative breast cancers, without harming healthy cells, a discovery that could lead to more ways to treat tumors while reducing side effects. The study, published recently in Nature Communications , shows that a molecule in cells, called Rad52, repairs special kinds of damaged DNA that accumulate in some cancers.


  5. Chemists achieve major milestone of synthesis: Remote chiral inductionRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 17, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    June 18, 2018 - Chemists at Scripps Research have addressed one of the most formidable challenges in synthetic chemistry by inventing a method for "enantioselective remote meta-CH activation," which enables the making of chiral molecules that were previously difficult or impossible to synthesize. The method, reported today in Nature , is likely to be adopted widely for the making of prospective drugs and other chemical products.


  6. Scripps Research chemist receives prestigious Royal Society of Chemistry AwardRead the original story w/Photo

    May 7, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    May 8, 2018 - Floyd Romesberg, PhD, professor at The Scripps Research Institute, has won the 2018 Royal Society of Chemistry Bioorganic Chemistry Award for his ground-breaking contributions to the expansion of the genetic alphabet. Romesberg will receive 2000, a medal and will conduct a lecture tour in the United Kingdom.


  7. 'Click chemistry' reactions may boost cancer-fighting drug potencyRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 19, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Feb. 16, 2018-- Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute have developed a quick and easy way to simultaneously modify dozens of drugs or molecules to improve their disease-fighting properties. Using the approach, scientists exchanged one chemical group for another in 39 cancer drugs--and discovered under lab conditions that the chemically altered versions of three of the drugs had more potent anti-cancer activity.


  8. TSRI scientists find key proteins control risk of osteoarthritis during agingRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 13, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Feb. 14, 2018 - More than 30 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis making it one of the most common age-related diseases. Now, a study from scientists at The Scripps Research Institute explains why the risk of osteoarthritis increases as we age and offers a potential avenue for developing new therapies to maintain healthy joints.


  9. TSRI scientists take big step toward stopping cancer metastasisRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 7, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Feb. 7, 2018 - New research from The Scripps Research Institute may give scientists a chance to target tumors before they metastasize. The study, published recently in the Nature research journal Oncogene , shows that a protein called LTBP3 fuels a chain reaction that leads some early developing tumors to grow new blood vessels.


  10. Gene delivery of drugs directly into arthritic joints is making the leap to patientsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 21, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Localized gene delivery to diseased joints to achieve sustained drug production at the site of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis is gaining momentum, with clinical trials underway in the U.S. and the first arthritis gene therapy recently approved in Korea. A detailed review of current trends in the field, gene delivery strategies, and ongoing clinical trials and product development are presented in an article published in Human Gene Therapy , a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers .


  11. TSRI researchers identify gene responsible for mesenchymal stem cells' stem-ness'Read the original story w/Photo

    Jan 21, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Jan. 22, 2018 - Many doctors, researchers and patients are eager to take advantage of the promise of stem cell therapies to heal damaged tissues and replace dysfunctional cells. Hundreds of ongoing clinical trials are currently delivering these therapies to patients worldwide.


  12. New research opens the door to 'functional cure' for HIVRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 16, 2017 | EurekAlert!

    Oct. 17, 2017 - In findings that open the door to a completely different approach to curing HIV infections, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have for the first time shown that a novel compound effectively suppresses production of the virus in chronically infected cells, and prevents viral rebound, even when those infected cells are subjected to vigorous stimulation. The study, led by TSRI Associate Professor Susana Valente, was published online Oct. 17 before print in the journal Cell Reports .


  13. Scripps Florida scientists unveil 'roadmap' to aid osteoporosis treatment developmentRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 12, 2017 | EurekAlert!

    October 13, 2017 - Using advanced mass spectrometry technology, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have developed a molecular model that may provide a new framework for improving the design of osteoporosis treatments. "Because of our aging population, these kinds of therapeutics are in great demand," said study leader Patrick R. Griffin, co-chair of the TSRI Department of Molecular Medicine.


  14. TSRI researchers explore ways that a drug like Avandia can be made saferRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 28, 2017 | EurekAlert!

    With the heightened concerns over the dangerous side effects of the once-popular antidiabetic drug Avandia, researchers at The Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, Florida, are working to understand how small molecules, like those in Avandia, can have such varied effects throughout the body. The insights could help researchers design new drugs with better efficacy and fewer side effects.
