UCSF researchers are leading several initiatives that aim to see how dozens of seemingly unrelated genes and proteins involved in a disease are in fact all part the same interconnected biological pathway.
UCSF researchers have identified a molecular signature in tissue adjacent to tumors in eight of the most common cancers that suggests they are all using the same mechanism to remodel normal tissue and spread.
Atul Butte has been appointed to the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Precision Medicine, a new group of experts that will contribute to the state’s continuing efforts to use advanced computing and technology to better understand, treat and prevent disease.
A new test that combines the effects of more than two dozen genetic variants, does a better job of predicting which cognitively normal older adults will go on to develop Alzheimer’s dementia than testing for APOE E4.
Genetic testing and new gene therapies may raise new questions for patients, and as front-line health workers, nurses could be the ones answering questions about how they related to health. UCSF has created a new course to help give an overview of the emerging topic.
