A scientific team led by the Gladstone Institutes and UCSF has discovered that a common form of a gene already associated with long life also improves learning and memory.
A renowned molecular biologist and an internationally acclaimed global health leader from UC San Francisco have been elected as members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes and UCSF have made an important breakthrough: they have discovered a way to transform skin cells into mature, fully functioning liver cells that flourish.
Scientists at the UCSF-affiliated Gladstone Institutes have devised a new method that allows for the more efficient and complete reprogramming of skin cells into cells that are virtually indistinguishable from heart muscle cells.
Scientists at the UCSF-affiliated Gladstone Institutes have found a way to efficiently edit the human genome one letter at a time, paving the way for therapies that cure disease.
Scientists, harnessing the power of regenerative medicine, have developed a technique in animal models that could replenish the cells destroyed by type 1 diabetes.
Researchers have developed a new way to study bone disorders and bone growth, using stem cells from patients afflicted with a rare, genetic bone disease.
Scientists at the UCSF-affiliated Gladstone Institutes have discovered how the interplay between two proteins in the brain fuels the degradation and death of the class of brain cells, or neurons, that leads to Parkinson’s.
Research led by scientists at the UCSF-affiliated Gladstone Institutes has identified the precise chain of molecular events in the human body that drives the death of most of the immune system’s CD4 T cells as an HIV infection leads to AIDS. Further, they have identified an existing anti-inflammatory drug that in laboratory tests blocks the death of these cells.
A new study provides further proof that regular use of the the HIV antiretroviral drug Truvada can reduce one’s risk for contracting HIV – without increasing sexual risk behavior.
