Statement from the NIH on cancer genetics findings at Johns Hopkins University

Systematic, genome-wide scans of two types of cancer--breast cancer and colorectal cancer--have revealed important new findings about the genetic underpinnings of these diseases, a team of researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore, Md., an NCI-designated Cancer Center, reports in the September 7 online issue of Science.* The Johns Hopkins group, which included Victor E....

Hopkins researchers discover potential new approach to treating diabetes

Scientists at Johns Hopkins have uncovered a surprising and novel way of lowering blood sugar levels in mice by manipulating the release of sugar by liver cells. The results, published in the June issue of Cell Metabolism, have implications for treating conditions like diabetes. ... ...The discovery by researchers in Hopkins' Institute of Basic Biomedical Sciences and McKusick-Nathans Institute f...

Whole-genome study at Johns Hopkins reveals a new gene associated with abnormal heart rhythm

Using a new genomic strategy that has the power to survey the entire human genome and identify genes with common variants that contribute to complex diseases, researchers at Johns Hopkins, together with scientists from Munich, Germany, and the Framingham Heart Study, U.S.A., have identified a gene that may predispose some people to abnormal heart rhythms that lead to sudden cardiac death, a condi...

Hopkins genetics experts aid efforts to identify hurricane Katrina victims

Experts at Johns Hopkins are joining efforts to identify more than 70 bodies recovered after Hurricane Katrina, which struck last Aug. 29, killing more than 1,200 in Louisiana and Mississippi. Most of those killed have already been identified and buried by their families....... Using experience gained in DNA analysis of human remains after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Hopkins epidemi...

Hopkins researchers discover genetic switch that turns off an oxygen-poor cell's combustion engine

Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered a previously unrecognized role played by the gene HIF-1 as it helps cell survive when a lack of oxygen decreases production of an energy-rich molecule called ATP and increases production of toxic molecules. ATP supplies energy the cell needs to perform each of its many chemical reactions and tasks, and in this way acts as the "currency" for the cell's en...

Gene design program from Johns Hopkins simplifies, automates and speeds design of 'artificial' genes

Johns Hopkins researchers have announced the development of a Web-based, automated computer program that they say greatly simplifies the time-consuming and error-prone process of manually designing artificial pieces of DNA....... The program, called GeneDesign, guides the design of blueprints for DNA segments to the exacting specifications required for studying gene function and genetically engin...

Johns Hopkins hosts 2005 Annual Fall Meeting of Biomedical Engineering Society

An international organization of biomedical, electrical, chemical and mechanical engineers and medical specialists will discuss the future of biomedical engineering during the 2005 fall meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), to be held in Baltimore Sept. 28 through Oct. 1 and hosted by Johns Hopkins. The conference, "The Changing Face of Biomedical Engineering Celebration of the W...

Hopkins scientists uncover 'tags' that force proteins to cell surface

Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered internal "shipping labels" that allow -- and perhaps force -- hundreds if not thousands of proteins to get to the surface of cells and stay there. Two natural proteins that use one of these "tags" are the ion channel that lets heart cells contract on cue, and the docking point that allows HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, into cells, the researchers discove...

Blood test for colon cancer risk to be goal of Hopkins project

An interdisciplinary team of scientists from Johns Hopkins and elsewhere has been selected to receive a $2.25 million, five-year grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to develop a practical test to predict a person's risk of colon cancer by looking for a particular biological marker in the blood. ... ...If successful, the test could be broadly applied to identify those who most need to...

Hebrew U. / Johns Hopkins study provides clues to dealing with human disease

Jerusalem A step towards understanding cell mutations that cause a variety of human diseases, particularly in children -- including that which brings about premature aging and early death -- has been taken by researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Silberman Institute of Life Sciences and the John Hopkins University School of Medicine....... The scientists have focused their research...
