Research Suggests Caution and Further Studies on Drugs Used to Treat Macular Degeneration

Millions of people with “wet” macular degeneration are prescribed a class of medication known as anti-VEGF drugs. But now TSRI scientists have found that a drastic reduction of VEGF activity may do more harm than good.

Discovery of Biological Energy-Sensing Switch Could Have Broad Implications for Biology and Medicine

Scientists from the Fedor lab have discovered a genetic sequence that can alter its host gene’s activity in response to cellular energy levels.

Team Receives $2.7 Million to Investigate Major Therapeutic Target

The focus of the new project is nuclear receptors, a superfamily of proteins that have been implicated in a number of cancers.
