For the June edition of Journal Club, we discussed the recent paper entitled “Changes at the nuclear lamina alter binding of pioneer factor Foxa2 in aged liver“. We had also summarized the research in an article earlier this month. Summary Increasing evidence suggests that regulation of heterochromatin at the nuclear envelope underlies metabolic disease susceptibility and…

For the June edition of Journal Club, we will be taking a look at the recent paper entitled “Changes at the nuclear lamina alter binding of pioneer factor Foxa2 in aged liver“. We summarized the research in an article earlier this month. Summary Increasing evidence suggests that regulation of heterochromatin at the nuclear envelope underlies…

Earlier this month, there was a human clinical trial of the supplement MitoQ, which showed some interesting results. We thought that we would take a look at the data, and discuss the findings. Literature [1] Rossman, M. J., Santos-Parker, J. R., Steward, C. A., Bispham, N. Z., Cuevas, L. M., Rosenberg, H. L., … &…

Earlier this month, we covered a recent human clinical trial of the supplement MitoQ, which showed some interesting results. We thought that we would explore the publication a bit deeper, take a look at the figures, and discuss the findings in this month’s Journal Club. You can find the publication here. Abstract Excess reactive oxygen…

In April we talked about new Alzheimer’s research showing how a gene variant ApoE4 greatly increases the risk of developing the disease, and also how researchers have converted the defective gene back to its original form to cut the risk of the disease.

Dr. Oliver Medvedik will be hosting the next edition of Journal Club on Tuesday, April 19th at 13:00 EST. We will be discussing new research published in nature where researchers modified a protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease into a more harmless form, allowing them to remove the damage caused by Alzheimer’s in human cells. This…

In the March 2018 Journal Club, we talked about how the researchers found out how to supercharge stem cells in a recent article the video is now available for you to enjoy. Reference [1] Chen, Y., J.D. Podlevsky, D. Logeswaran and J.J.-L. Chen (2018). A single nucleotide incorporation step limits human telomerase repeat addition activity. EMBO. J….

The next edition of Journal Club will be on 20th March at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK where we will be discussing a new discovery about telomerase, and a potential way we might use it to improve tissue regeneration in humans. We have talked about how the researchers found out how to supercharge stem cells in a…

In the February edition of Journal Club, we talked about the new publication by Dr. Maria Blasco which demonstrates the reversal of pulmonary fibrosis in a new mouse model. This is an important step forward for the potential treatment of fibrosis as currently there are no effective cures for this disease. We also wrote an…

The next edition of Journal Club will be on March 1st, 2018 at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK live on our Facebook page. And yes, we know it’s the February edition of the club and it’s airing in March but we could not broadcast sooner due to things happening at Cooper Union beyond our control, will we…
