A discovery in hormone-producing cells could lead to a better understanding of diseases related to misfolded proteins.
Basic Science and Laboratory Research
A new understanding of the interaction among multidrug-resistant bacteria, and how antibiotics affect them, could lead to better infection prevention.
New research in fruit flies shows how insulin, pheromones, fertility and mating are all connected. Could this knowledge help us understand higher animals — including ourselves?
New U-M research has shown that pluripotent stem cells can self-organize into a structure similar to the amniotic sac, an early stage of human development. The discovery could be used to study why pregnancies fail.
A study of DNA from prehistoric German dogs yielded new clues about how dogs became domesticated from wolves. The same techniques can teach us about our own ancient origins — and diseases that affect both species.
