Verge Genomics, the drug discovery startup we recently featured in our Top 5 Startups Disrupting Healthcare, has raised $32 million in Series A financing.
Efficiently translating genomic research into the clinic is one of the most important steps in the development of the field. The clinic is where we will see things come to fruition.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School have found further evidence that supports the notion that viruses could help cause the onset of Alzheimer’s disease; an idea that was once ridiculed by other sceptics and researchers.
Scientists have developed a technique that shows individual cancer cells in a tumour in real-time, revealing which cells that interact with a drug and which cells the drug fails to reach.
Scientists are taking advantage of the “self-homing” abilities of cancer cells and are creating armies of cancer-killing cells using CRISPR gene-editing.
There are very few reported cases of children inheriting almost all of their genes from a single parent, but this 11-year-old girl is the first one so far without any signs of cancer.
Researchers have developed a gentle, contact-free method that uses sound waves to separate circulating tumour cells from blood samples quickly and efficiently enough for clinical use.
Are you the next person to sign up for the Clinical Sciences (Bioinformatics) Programme?
CRISPR gene drives have been tested in laboratory mice for the first time, offering a way in which multiple genes in mice can be altered to model complex multigenic human diseases. Could this step eventually lead to the eradication of pest species or is the technology still too controversial?
The US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has approved adding a test for spinal muscular atrophy to the list of recommended newborn screens in the United States.
Phenotyping trailblazers are proving an impressive success in the clinic as the continue to go from strength to strength.
People living in England will be the first in the world to have access to DNA tests as routine care starting this fall, putting the NHS at the forefront of healthcare, as it takes a huge step towards precision medicine.
