Australian scientists have shown, for the first time, that a family of untethered proteins builds up in the cells of children with a rare and serious genetic condition, known as mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD).
Australian scientists have developed a first-of-its-kind model of Parkinson’s disease in zebrafish. In the model, neurodegeneration occurs through a combination of genetic and environmental factors – just as it does in people.
Australian scientists have uncovered a promising new approach to treating pancreatic cancer, by targeting the tissue around the tumour to make it ‘softer’ and more responsive to chemotherapy. The findings are published today in Science Translational Medicine.
