  1. Scripps Florida Scientists Win Grant to Uncover Ways to Erase Toxic PTSD MemoriesRead the original story

    Friday Dec 12 | Newswise

    December 11, 2014 - Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have been awarded $2.3 million from the Department of Health and Human Services of the National Institutes of Health to better understand how memories are stored in the hopes of eventually being able to treat posttraumatic stress disorder by erasing traumatic memories without altering other, more benign ones. "We hope this new study will make a significant contribution to the goal of developing new and more effective treatments for mental illness," Miller said.

  2. Scripps Florida Scientists Unveil New Targets, Test to Develop Treatments for Memory DisordersRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 12, 2014 | Newswise

    JUPITER, FL, November 12, 2014 - In a pair of related studies, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have identified a number of new therapeutic targets for memory disorders and have developed a new screening test to uncover compounds that may one day work against those disorders. The two studies, one published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , the other in the journal ASSAY and Drug Development Technologies , could lead new approaches to some of the most problematic diseases facing a rapidly aging world population, including Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases and dementia.

  3. Scripps Florida Scientists Uncover Major Factor in Development of Huntington's DiseaseRead the original story

    Oct 28, 2014 | Newswise

    JUPITER, FL, October 28, 2014 - Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have uncovered a major contributor to Huntington's disease, a devastating progressive neurological condition that produces involuntary movements, emotional disturbance and cognitive impairment. Using an animal model of Huntington's disease, the new study shows that signaling by a specific protein can trigger onset of the disease and lead to exacerbation of symptoms.

    Sep 4, 2014 | Newswise

    JUPITER, FL, September 4, 2014 - In a collaborative study, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology have developed a more effective method to determine how immune cells called T cells differentiate into specialized types of cells that help eradicate infected cells and assist other immune cells during infection. The new approach, published recently by the journal Immunity , could help accelerate laboratory research and the development of potential therapeutics, including vaccines.
