A real breakthrough for Parkinson’s disease?
One of the greatest barriers to treating neural degeneration and neural tissue injury is the fact that neurons do not proliferate, and there are only a few areas of the brain that exhibit neurogenesis. It is possible to convert one somatic cell type...

Coronavirus – How it began
During the beginning of this year, a novel coronavirus disease — termed Covid-19 by the WHO — was identified as being responsible for a sudden increase in cases of pneumonia in hospitalized patients. We have seen this rapidly escalate into a global...

A new scar reduction role for engineered T cells
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number one cause of death globally, responsible for 31% of all human mortalities. This is in part due to lifestyle but also because the human heart is incapable of functional regeneration following injury or on...

De-arming CRISPR/Cas9 to increase knock-in efficiency
The ability to knock in (KI) DNA sequences via homologous recombination (HR) to generate knockout (KO) mice was first demonstrated 30 years ago by Mario R. Capecchi, Martin J. Evans and Oliver Smithies (1,2). In recent years, CRISPR/Cas9 has revolut...

The painless people
Wouldn’t it be nice if we felt no pain? Although lacking the ability to feel pain sounds tempting, considering we could have simply moved on with our lives without going through the hassle of tending to our injuries, the consequences of being painle...

From fibroblast to blastocyst: the magic ingredients
When the lab of Shinya Yamanaka revealed that viral introduction of Oct3/4, Sox2, Klf4 and c-Myc (OSKM) into adult skin cells could transform them into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), the world quickly took notice at the prospect of using iP...

CRISPRing our cellular roots
The remarkable process by which a single totipotent zygote develops into the approximately 37 trillion cells in a human body is orchestrated by a highly controlled sequence of signaling events resulting in a multitude of differentiated cell types. T...

AAVs usher in the new era of Gene Therapy
Adeno-associated virus (AAV), initially discovered as a contaminant of adenovirus preparations (1), is the choice vehicle for gene therapy due to its ability to transduce proliferating and non-dividing cells with no known pathogenicity to humans. As...

AAV – The king of viral vectors?
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) has recently been surging in popularity as a vector system. The recent wave of gene therapy successes and powerful new genome editing technologies, such as CRISPR/Cas9, have increased public and scientific awareness of t...

Vectors on the brain
The nervous system presents several unique challenges that make it a difficult system to study experimentally. At a structural level, the brain has a complexity that is orders of magnitude greater than other organs, and even the peripheral nervous s...
