Team Finds Long-Sought Method to Efficiently Make Complex Anticancer Compound

The new method, designed in the Baran lab, reduces the chemical synthesis of ingenol from 37 steps to just 14, facilitating its commercial development.

Scientists Devise New Way to Dramatically Raise RNA Treatment Potency

As proof-of-principle, a drug candidate from the Disney lab powerfully neutralizes the myotonic dystrophy defect in cell culture

New Findings Could Help Improve Development of Drugs for Addiction

“Essentially, we have shown an important link between cell-based screening assays and what occurs naturally in animal models,” says Associate Professor Laura Bohn.

Researchers Discover New Type of Protein Modification that May Play a Role in Cancer and Diabetes

The finding from the Cravatt lab, which points to a regulator of important cellular processes, could lead to new insights into the causes of diabetes, cancer and other disorders.

Scripps Florida Team Awarded $10.6 Million to Decipher Root Causes of Human Aging

The five-year study, led by Professor Paul Robbins, will focus on identifying how cellular damage drives the aging process.
