The genetic changes that underlie an especially lethal type of prostate cancer have been revealed in a new study by investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine. Learning more about what causes this type of cancer, called neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC), could lead to new approaches for treating it.

Most early-stage prostate cancers require male hormones (androgens) like testosterone to grow. However, as they advance, they may evolve into castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), a...

SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the global COVID-19 pandemic, can infect human pancreatic cells and alter their physiology, according to research from Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian investigators. Though the results come from analyses of autopsy samples and cultured cells and don't prove a direct causal relationship, they dovetail with clinical reports of glucose control problems in COVID-19 patients, suggesting a new dimension of disease development for a virus that has...

A team led by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and Children’s National Hospital has developed a unique pre-clinical model that enables the study of long-term HIV infection, and the testing of new therapies aimed at curing the disease.

Ordinary mice cannot be infected with HIV, so previous HIV mouse models have used mice that carry human stem cells or CD4 T cells, a type of immune cell that can be infected with HIV. But these models tend to have limited utility because the human...

Dr. Giovanni Manfredi, the Finbar and Marianne Kenny Professor in Clinical and Research Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine’s Feil Family Brain and Mind Research Institute, has received an Outstanding Investigator Award (R35) from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to study the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in brain disease.

The highly competitive award provides long-term support and flexibility for an investigator to...

Gut bacteria play an important role in the body’s response to treatment for tuberculosis (TB), according to researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Because current treatments for TB involve long courses of antibiotics, which are known to disrupt the balance of microbes in the gut, a better understanding of these interactions may help in predicting outcomes to therapy and suggest ways to improve it.

In their study, published Feb. 18 in Nature Communications,...

A team led by scientists at Weill Cornell Medicine has made a map identifying all the different RNA molecules that are derived from each gene in the brains of mice. It is the first map that depicts this important layer of biological diversity, called isoform variation, by cell type and across brain regions for the whole genome, and it contributes to neuroscientists’ ambitious goal of an ultra-detailed atlas of the brain.

Isoform variation is a process that extends the versatility of...
