The findings could one day lead to improved therapies for people undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for cancer.
A UCLA study used 3D chromosome-mapping technology to advance understanding of disorder’s cause. The work provides important new information about how schizophrenia originates and could lead to better treatments.
In a first-of-its-kind study, UCLA-led researchers have discovered a gene variant that could be a factor in determining which women experience the symptom.
UCLA-led study will offer scientists insights into how cells and organs work when people are ill and healthy.
The discovery opens up a new avenue of research into autism’s causes and potential therapies.
The technique involved amplifying a protein signal without using enzymes, which takes the process from two to four hours down to 10 minutes.
Scientists find new autism-linked gene, and discover that autistic siblings don’t always have the same disease-related mutations.
From the capuchin monkeys of Costa Rica to the Los Angeles area's mountain lions, UCLA experts are developing new techniques and advancing knowledge.
A team of scientists including researchers from UCLA has developed an RNA sequencing technique that could advance scientists’ use of stem cells in regenerative medicine.
A world-class scientist and educator, Kruglyak is a professor of human genetics and biological chemistry.
UCLA researchers pinpointed the function of a cluster of specialized genes that play a key role in creating and preserving hematopoietic stem cells and identified the process by which those genes are activated.
UCLA scientists have recently partnered with the Sandia National Laboratory to develop special screening libraries based on a gene-editing technology called CRISPR.
The researchers discovered good news as well: An omega-3 fatty acid known as docosahexaenoic acid seems to reverse the harmful changes.
The approach can help physicians identify disorders that may have gone undiagnosed for years. UCLA has been a leader in using the test since 2012.
Researchers also found an existing drug that can promote nerve regeneration in the central nervous system.
These changes could potentially lead to various developmental disorders and other health risks.
UCLA scientists’ finding could lead to new therapies for the disorder, which affects one in 68 children in the United States.
Archaeologist Matthew Curtis was part of a team that recently discovered a skeleton that yielded the first complete ancient genome ever found in Africa.
UCLA research reveals the three-dimensional atomic structure of a double-stranded RNA virus and the biological nano-switch that turns on transcription.
The effort will encompass a 100,000-person study to discover the causes of depression, a new treatment center and a community outreach program.
Using Broad Stem Cell Research Center’s cell isolation and genetic sequencing technologies and sophisticated bioinformatics, scientists identify elusive LncRNA genes.
A new UCLA program offers hope and potential answers for people who have undergone extensive medical testing but still don’t know what is causing their symptoms.
Other diagnostic tools may be more efficient and cost-effective for the general population, although genetic screening remains valuable for women in groups known to carry certain genetic mutations.
The DNA-based discovery means the biological family Canidae has 36 members, not 35.
The treatment uses a chemical to block an RNA molecule that’s typically found in high levels in people with ulcerative colitis.
