Structures of the heart reveal risk to cardiovascular disease

A recent study published in Nature has explored the fractal structure of the heart, revealing its influence on susceptibility to […]

Single-cell RNA sequencing suggests new treatment options for diabetic kidney disease

A new study using a 1-million-cell atlas shows heterogeneity in kidney cell responses to diabetic kidney disease and treatments. Published […]

Distinct DNA methylation sites associated with heart disease

A new study, published in JAMA Cardiology, has identified DNA methylation sites associated with heart disease. Most importantly, the study […]

RNA modifications can protect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Researchers have revealed that post-transcriptional RNA modifications protect against the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This mechanism may also […]

BioMe used to Identify new Subpopulations and Disease Risks

Accurately understanding populations and associated disease risks is important to direct resources and treatments effectively. By understanding where someone comes […]

Circular RNA: Liquid biopsy biomarker for human diseases

A recent review, published in Protein & Cell, has explored the potential use of blood circular RNA as a liquid […]

Underdiagnosis of monogenic heart and vascular diseases

Through performing whole-exome sequencing (WES), researchers have found that diagnoses for monogenic cardiovascular diseases (MCVDs) may have previously been missed. […]

A major cause of rare mitochondrial disease found

A study from the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) has found a genetic cause for a rare disease that causes […]

Studies identify novel genetic variants for heart disease using new method

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death globally. Two of the most common forms of heart disease […]

Interview with Dr Rona Strawbridge, UKRI Innovation

Dr Rona Strawbridge has been using genetics to try to understand complex diseases, who’s work has focused much on obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and more recently serious mental illness. We managed to have a chat with Rona ahead of her speaking at the Festival of Genomics about her work and why she’s excited to be speaking at the festival this year.
