Doctors could be a step closer to finding the most effective way to treat cancer with a double whammy of a virus combined with boosting the natural immune system, according to a pioneering study by researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) and The Ohio State University.
A study led by a neurologist from McGovern Medical School showed that a computed tomography (CT scan) could be sufficient for determining thrombectomy treatment in stroke.
Professors from several departments at McGovern Medical School shared research presentations with thousands of scientists in biophysics at the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society (BPS) earlier this year.
With the help of gene editing and the African clawed frog, researchers in the laboratory of Dr. Rachel K. Miller in the Department of Pediatrics at McGovern Medical School have found a cost-effective model for studying the genetics of developmental kidney diseases.
Researchers at McGovern Medical School have been awarded grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explore how the buildup of protein deposits in the brain can trigger dementia and stroke.
Bipolar disorder may involve accelerated epigenetic aging, which could explain why persons with the disorder are more likely to have – and die from – age-related diseases, according to researchers from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).
The Department of Anesthesiology at McGovern Medical School recently recruited a leading expert in liver disease studies with plans to establish a Liver Injury Research Program.
The University of Texas (UT) System has recruited another rising ‘star’ into the fold at McGovern Medical School, welcoming a new faculty member to the Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine who aims to connect phenotype to genotype through understanding gene regulation and develop genomics tools that can be applied to investigations in his own lab and beyond.
Thanks to the efforts of researchers in the Diagnostic & Interventional Imaging Department at McGovern Medical School, the UTHealth name will be all over a new set of safety standards for a series of portable X-ray machines created by MinXray that can be used outside of medical facilities all over the world.
Professors and researchers with the Center for Antimicrobial Resistance and Microbial Genomics (CARMiG) had the unique opportunity to promote McGovern Medical School’s ongoing research projects on antibiotic resistance at a national fair in Washington D.C. last month.
