Gladstone in the News
The Gladstone Institutes is gratified to receive media attention from around the globe. Check out the highlights of recent press coverage of Gladstone scientists and research. For other news, please be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Gladstone Investigators Shinya Yamanaka and Sheng Ding weigh in on findings tha an external stressor, such as low pH or a mechanical squeeze, can send differentiated mouse cells back to a pluripotent state.
Gladstone Investigator Sheng Ding weighs in on a surprising study finding that a simple acid bath might turn cells in the body into stem cells that could one day be used for tissue repair and other medical treatments.
A close look inside the researchers and laboratory of Gladstone Investgiator Steve Finkbeiner—and their search for a cure for devastating diseases of the brain.
Scientists in the US have pinpointed the so-called Achilles heel of the AIDS virus. The findings could lead to the development of a new therapeutic strategy for the treatment of HIV - one which targets the host, rather than the virus.
Scientists say they have discovered a key process by which the AIDS virus kills key immune cells: It triggers a preprogrammed self-destruct sequence within the cell that is intended to alert fellow immune cells of a crisis.
An anti-inflammatory drug shelved by Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc. after a mid-stage study in epilepsy patients could be the next big HIV treatment.
Scientists have discovered that the AIDS virus destroys the immune system by infecting a relatively few number of cells that create a fiery pathway that consumes nearby cells. Finding could lead to treatments to dampen disease activity.
U.S. scientists have discovered the basic mechanisms that allow HIV to wipe out the body's immune system and cause AIDS, which could lead to new approaches to treatment and research for a cure for the disease that affects 35 million people around the world.
Can an experimental drug developed to treat epilepsy block the AIDS virus? A preliminary lab study suggests it's possible, and researchers are eager to try it in people.
The reason people who are infected with HIV die is because their white blood cells die, leaving them unable to fight infections. Now, researchers show for the first time that this cell death is caused by cellular self-destruction, and is linked with inflammation.
