A minuscule, biodegradable scaffold has been created to transplant stem cells and deliver drugs within the body, the Nature Communications journal has reported, which could help with treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, as well as aging brain degeneration and spinal cord injuries.
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.
We spoke to Dr. David R. Hillyard MD, Chair and Medical Director of Molecular Infectious Diseases at ARUP Laboratories, about his work within the realm of infectious diseases and the increasing role of molecular diagnostics in combating pathogens.
If you’ve been part of the GeoMx DSP Technology Access Program, then you’ll already know why this is so exciting. If you haven’t heard about it yet, then you should make sure you’re sitting down – yes it really is that exciting.
We spoke to Dr. Carlos Prada, Assistant Professor of Clinical Genetics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center within the University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics, and Dr. Emma Clement, Consultant in Clinical Genetics at Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK, to find out how more about the challenges of implementing NGS globally, and where that implementation has been successful.
Dr. Jonathan Rothberg is a man who needs little introduction, and is now receiving the Association of Molecular Pathology’s (AMP) Award for Excellence in Molecular Diagnostics Services. We spoke to him about his many achievements, his proudest moments, and the future of his fascinating field.
While the Annual Meeting & Expo is the pinnacle of the association’s educational calendar, AMP offers educational initiatives throughout the year in a variety of formats, many of which offer continuing education credit.
AMP 2018: Decoding the Cancer Genome: Breakthrough AI Technology Quickly Identifies Actionable Mutations
Explosive advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) have greatly improved the ability to identify actionable cancer mutations, both for solid and hematological malignancies, and sparked a new era of oncology care. But accurate analysis and proper interpretation of the complex genomic data produced by NGS remain key hurdles.
The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) Annual Meeting & Expo is where the molecular diagnostics community gathers to advance clinical knowledge, discuss new discoveries, share recent successes, and showcase the latest technological advances in molecular medicine.
Maize is one of the most economically important crops globally and much effort has been spent generating the high quality B73 reference genome. However, the 10 chromosome, 2.3 gigabase (Gb) B73 reference genome was a substantial challenge due to the fact it is comprised of 85% transposable elements, 75% of which are long terminal […]
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and their collaborators at other institutions have identified a link between how proteins bind to our DNA and how cancer develops.
The Code is an agreement between Government and the insurance industry – with a commitment from insurers to not ask customers about predictive genetic test results when applying for insurance.
Cells settling in an organ other than the correct one during embryogenesis are often the cause of rare ovarian and pancreatic cancers which affect only young women, researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) have found.
