Evidence has clearly established that women are underrepresented in science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines despite decades of interventions aimed
at achieving gender parity (National Science Foundation, 2017). The...
An in vitro method was developed to screen mRNA sites for psedouridine modification by specific pseudouridylating enzymes and identify an RNA structural motif for Pus1, which can be used to predict new pseudouridylated mRNA targets in vivo.
Responding to the agency’s stern rebuke, Vas Narasimhan, the company’s executive, tried to reassure investors that Novartis did not intentionally deceive the F.D.A. while seeking approval for its $2.1 million gene therapy.
Women are under-represented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Despite the recent emphasis on diversity in STEM, our understanding of what drives
differences between women and men scientists remains limited. This, in turn,...
Peter SudmantThis is fascinating - massive disparity, but progress and strategies to increase gender parity at conferences
Peter SudmantHey folks! The Sudmant Lab is hiring motivated, friendly and collaborative postdocs interested in the genomics and evolution of cellular and organismal diversity, aging, and genome structure!
Check out the job description and please RT!
Genetic analyses of ancestrally diverse populations show evidence of heterogeneity across ancestries and provide insights into clinical implications, highlighting the importance of including ancestrally diverse populations to maximize genetic...
Peter SudmantStoked for #evol19! looking forward to seeing friends and great science! Check out SudmantLab poster Sunday 5:30-7:30 ExHallBC_16 and talk Monday June 24, 4:15-4:29 553 - We are recruiting postdocs and grad students too! Come talk to us!
This Research Letter examines differences in the size of National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants awarded to first-time male and female principal investigators at top research institutions, including the Big Ten and Ivy League universities.
Aging involves a decline in neural function that contributes to cognitive impairment and disease. However, the mechanisms underlying the transition from a young-and-healthy to aged-and-dysfunctional brain are not well understood. Here, we report...
Peter SudmantAwesome new work from colleages Vlad Senatorov and Aaron Friedman of the Kaufer lab! Blood-brain barrier dysfunction in aging induces hyper-activation of TGF-beta signaling and chronic yet reversible neural dysfunction
The extent to which cells in normal tissues accumulate mutations throughout life is poorly understood. Some mutant cells expand into clones that can be detected by genome sequencing. We mapped mutant clones in normal esophageal epithelium from nine...
