Press release by Mark Derewicz for UNC Hahn Lab paper published online in Nature Chemical Biology March 9, 2014.
New targeted therapies for pain, Parkinson's disease, and depression carry the promise of greater benefit for patients without serious side effects.
In a paper published in Nature Neuroscience on November 10, Juan Song discovers how baby neurons stay alive, a key finding for understanding neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
In the first application of this approach, the UNC researchers showed how a protein called Src kinase influences the way cells extend and move, a previously unknown role that is consistent with the protein’s ties to tumor progression and metastasis.
Bryan Roth and Collaborators Have Back to Back Papers Published in Science on Discovery of Structure of Serotonin Receptors
The Roth Lab in collaboration with Ray Stevens' Lab at Scripps Research Institute had 2 papers published on Science's advanced online publishing website, Science Express, March 21, 2013. The papers describe the structure of serotonin receptors and how the structure of the receptors shapes drug effects.
