Sequencing of adult cells provides insight into human embryogenesis

How the human embryo develops is a complex and unclear phenomenon. Scientists are faced with many challenges when it comes […]

Targeting T cells against brain cancer

Researchers have reprogrammed regulatory T cells in the brain to fight against the most aggressive type of brain cancer – […]

Elimination of senescent cells

Researchers have found how immune cells naturally clear the body of senescent cells, which could potentially be harnessed to treat […]

T cell experts assemble!

The Global T cell Expert Consortium (GTEC) has officially kicked-off including eleven founding members from eight labs across three continents. […]

CAR-T cell therapy shows promise against rare childhood cancer

A novel CAR-T cell therapy, developed by researchers at UCL and designed to target cancerous tumours, has shown early promising […]

Malignant cells: hitchhikers of biological cycles

Here we summarise a recent review, published in Genome Biology, that presented the hypothesis that internal and external ecological variations […]

Purifying selection in T cells

A recent publication in The New England Journal of Medicine has reported observations of reduced heteroplasmy in T cells – […]

The role of red blood cells in the immune system

New research has uncovered the function of red blood cells as immune sensors that detect and bind to cell-free DNA […]

Sperm cells developed from primate stem cells

With male infertility rates rising globally, researchers have shown for the first time that functional sperm cells can be made […]

Combining single-cell and metagenomics to characterise the microbiome

Metagenomic analysis has greatly advanced our understanding of the human microbiome. However, metagenome-assembled genomes are often imprecise and are unable […]
