New research shows that testosterone promotes melanoma proliferation by activating a newly recognized nonclassical testosterone receptor in melanoma cells called ZIP9 (encoded by the SLC39A9 gene), a zinc transporter that is not intentionally targeted by any available therapeutics but is widely expressed in human melanoma.
Northwestern University scientists have received two awards totaling nearly $18 million for Parkinson's disease research from The ASAP Collaborative Research Network, a program of the Aligning Science Across Parkinson's (ASAP) initiative being implemented through The Michael J. Fox Foundation.
When Lori Popejoy and Amy Vogelsmeier were working as registered nurses early in their careers, they saw firsthand how quickly respiratory infections, such as the common flu, could spread in nursing homes.
