Latest research findings from the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences
Johns Hopkins scientists have found a way to make glucose meters detect COVID-19 antibodies. Now, they’re trying to get it in the hands of the consumer.
Thanks to many generous donors, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Brain Resource Center has a large tissue repository for Johns Hopkins University faculty and academics across the country.
What do an amoeba, worms and fruit flies have in common? They’re each used by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine to research human muscle, cell machinery, and cell development.
Last year, the World Health Organization reclassified brain tumors with a strong emphasis on differences at the molecular level. JHM neurosurgeon Alan Cohen, M.D., published an article about how these approaches can offer targeted therapy to improve outcomes and reduce treatment complications.
The Johns Hopkins team contributed key research to the effort, which will provide a clearer picture of how DNA affects the risks of diseases and how genes are expressed and regulated.
By manipulating the structure and the stiffness of the 3D culture, Johns Hopkins Medicine scientists Lew Romer and David Gracias show that tissue cells can be organized into specific formations, or even words.
Genetic medicine at Johns Hopkins — created as a department in 2019 — has a new leader at its helm. Ambroise Wonkam, a Cameroonian genetic medicine specialist from the University of Cape Town, joined Johns Hopkins as the director Jan. 1.
