Seminars on collagen structure and vesicle trafficking sparked thoughtful discussion during chemistry and neuroscience department talks in January.
A new discovery from the lab of chemist Matthew Disney, Ph.D., takes its inspiration from Greek mythology. The compound is a chimera, and it battles a toxic cause of Parkinson's in two ways.
Scientists have discovered two useful new enzymes which may help them create medicines for cancer and other conditions. The enzymes were found in the Natural Products Discovery Center collection.
Chemistry Professor Thomas Kodadek, Ph.D., has won a third Transformative Research Award from the National Institutes of Health for his plan to capitalize on cells' protein recycling machinery as a way to fight cancer.
Masayuki Wasa, Ph.D., invents new chemistry methods that enable diagnostic and mechanistic studies of drug candidates
The scientists’ approach directs cells’ recycling enzymes to cancer genes’ RNA and cuts up key segments to prevent them from doing harm. The tactic worked against the MYC cancer gene, and also two other challenging cancer genes.
Ten graduate students who completed their doctoral studies on The Herbert Wertheim UF Scripps Institute for Biomedical Innovation & Technology campus in Jupiter were honored today, Friday, May 19, during Scripps Research’s 31st Commencement Ceremony in La Jolla, California. Hosted by the Skaggs Graduate School…
A bioresponsive sensor from Carroll lab activates antioxidants only when needed and provides a tool for studying free radicals' role in disease.
A team led by chemistry professor Ben Shen, Ph.D., discovered a potent anti-cancer compound within the institute's natural products collection. It has been connected to a precise cancer-seeking antibody with an innovative linker molecule.
It was the first major scientific conference at the institute since the pandemic began, and so researchers relished the opportunity to share recent work and reconnect.
