OMG! It's just like that Queen song Another One Rides The Bus! Oh wait, that was Weird Al Yankovic! LOLz! Either way, this time we're talking about real life! Queen Elizabeth II was spotted visiting the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, and instead of having the car brought ’round, she decided to be a woman of the people! Just [...]
Researchers have identified a number of key molecular players that contribute to the development of rheumatoid arthritis. In blood samples of severe arthritis sufferers, scientists have discovered antibodies against a particular enzyme. Show More Summary
Biological processes are generally based on events at the molecular and cellular level. To understand what happens in the course of infections, diseases or normal bodily functions, scientists would need to examine individual cells and their activity directly in the tissue. Show More Summary
We welcome the return of our monthly contributor Simon Mathews, currently chief strategy officer at West Coast shop, Extractable, who’ s also worked on the strategy side at the likes of Isobar and Molecular during his career. As per usual, we’re not really sure how to preface Mathews’ entry, so let’s just let him to the talking. Show More Summary
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have unraveled the molecular foundations of cocaine's effects on the brain, and identified a compound that blocks cravings for the drug in cocaine-addicted mice. The compound, already proven safe for humans,...Show More Summary

A $100,000 gift from the Val Skinner Foundation is helping to drive discoveries in precision medicine at The Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Drilling down to the tiniest of details in examining molecular and genomic information within individual cancers, investigators aim to identify genomic changes and patterns that may influence treatment decisions and potential outcomes.
University of Montreal researchers have discovered a novel molecular mechanism that can potentially slow the progression of some cancers and other diseases of abnormal growth. In the May 23 edition of the prestigious journal Cell, scientists have explained how they found that the anti-cancer and anti-proliferative drug rapamycin slows down or prevents cells from dividing.
For the first time, biophysicists have measured the molecular force required to mechanically transmit function-regulating signals within a cell. A new laboratory method, named the tension gauge tether approach, has made it possible to detect and measure the mechanics of the single-molecule interaction by which human cell receptors are activated.
Researchers have discovered the molecular link between the cells in skin that sense itching and the nerve cells that relay the perception of that itch to the brain. Take that molecule away, and the itchy sensation vanishes. So far, the...Show More Summary

Researchers have unraveled the molecular foundations of cocaine’s effects on the brain, and identified a compound that blocks cravings for the drug in cocaine-addicted mice. The compound, already proven safe for humans, is undergoing further animal testing in preparation for possible clinical trials in cocaine addicts, the researchers say.

ByCory Renauer: Last week, Angelina Jolie's op-ed in the New York Times gave the field of molecular diagnostics more publicity than the industry could have wished for. If, like many investors, you are looking for a way to dial in toShow More Summary
Working with lab mice models of multiple sclerosis (MS), UC Davis scientists have detected a novel molecular target for the design of drugs that could be safer and more effective than current FDA-approved medications against MS. TheShow More Summary
Researchers have pinpointed a catalytic trigger for the onset of Alzheimer's disease – when the fundamental structure of a protein molecule changes to cause a chain reaction that leads to the death of neurons in the brain. For the first...Show More Summary
