The Center for Medical Innovation at Penn State College of Medicine honored leaders in innovation and discovery, as well as student work, during a ceremony at the University Conference Center on Oct. 17.
Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute has been awarded a $416,000 grant from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences for a pilot program to better understand the issues facing rural communities and address a decline in American life expectancy.
A new National Institutes of Health (NIH) High-Risk, High-Reward grant will allow Penn State’s Dr. Steven Schiff and team to explore a radically changed approach to predicting, preventing and treating infectious disease at the individual level at point-of-care.
Splitting up and getting back together is always hard to do, but for proteins, it's almost impossible. However, a computer-guided algorithm may help scientists find just the right spot to split a protein and then reassemble it to functionality.
From aging to cancer—with quite a bit in between—Katherine Aird, assistant professor of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at Penn State College of Medicine, and her team have a whole world of research opportunities in front of them.
A team of researchers has developed a new framework that can combine three existing methods of finding mutations -- or structural variants -- in the DNA of cancer cells into a single, more complete picture.
The mechanics behind how an important process within the cell traps material before recycling it has puzzled scientists for years. But Penn State researchers have gained new insight into how this process seals off waste, much like a trash bag.
