The nutrient that cancer cells crave

Starving cancer cells of a key amino acid could potentially render tumors more vulnerable to the body’s natural immune response.

Elaine Fuchs awarded Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Science

Fuchs receives the honor for illuminating the genetics of skin diseases and the mechanisms that guide skin renewal, yielding insights into aging, inflammation, and cancer.

A unique window into "original antigenic sin"

The body's first blush with a pathogen shapes how it will respond to vaccines. New evidence clarifies how this phenomenon works, mechanistically.

How the body's B cell academy ensures a diverse immune response

A diverse immune response hinges on naive B cells mingling with high affinity ones in the late-stage germinal center. Whether that helps or hinders, however, depends on the virus.

Remembering a pioneer of chromatin biology

Charles David Allis, a molecular biologist who shaped the field of chromatin biology, died on January 8 at the age of 71.

Why older fathers pass on more genetic mutations to their offspring

It's not just the number of mutations that matters. It's the failure to fix them too.

Solving a crucial bottleneck in drug discovery

A novel method reduces the time required to identify novel antibiotic-producing DNA from weeks to days.

When the body's B cell training grounds stay open after hours

While most germinal centers shut down after a few weeks, some stay in business for more than six months. A new study helps explain why.

Intriguing science discoveries of 2022

Breakthroughs in genetics, biochemistry, neuroscience, infectious disease, and drug development were a few of the year's highlights.
