Among other superpowers, stem cells have a knack for fending off viruses like dengue and zika. Scientists have gained new insight into these curious defense strategies—knowledge they say could fuel the development of drugs against a range of diseases.
The National Academy of Sciences is comprised of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Members and foreign associates are elected in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. Thirty-nine Rockefeller University scientists are members or foreign associates of The National Academy of Sciences.
