For previously healthy children, brain infections are rare. But about one out of every 10,000 people who are exposed to common viruses like herpes simplex or influenza will develop a potentially deadly disease, encephalitis. Rockefeller’s Jean-Laurent Casanova has identified mutations in a single gene that may explain what goes wrong…...
Günter Blobel, a Nobel Prize-winning Rockefeller biologist who discovered the mechanisms by which proteins are targeted for delivery to specific locations within cells, died February 18 at 81. Blobel joined the Rockefeller faculty 51 years ago; he was the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Professor and had been a Howard Hughes…...
Put 50 newborn worms in 50 separate containers, and they’ll all start looking for food at roughly the same time. Like members of other species, microscopic C. elegans roundworms tend to act like other individuals their own age. It turns out that the innate system that controls age-appropriate behavior in…...
The Albert Lasker Award celebrates scientists, physicians, and public servants whose accomplishments have made major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and cure of many crippling and fatal diseases. The Lasker Award has come to be known as the "American Nobel" and is the most coveted award in medical science.
Since 1946, when the first Lasker Awards were presented, 22 recipients have been associated with The Rockefeller University.
