Huntington's light toolResearchers are using light in a laboratory to study how proteins assemble in cells, an approach that could lead to treatments of neurological disorders such as Huntington’s disease. The approach is based on the fact that the clumping together of proteins often leads to neurological disorders. Clifford Brangwynne led the Princeton University study, “Spatiotemporal Control of Intracellular Phase […]

Huntington's researchScientists have developed a laboratory tool that allows them to follow the activity of astrocytes — important brain cells that may contribute to the pathology of several diseases, including Huntington’s disease (HD). The development might help scientists better understand how the cells work and establish new therapies for a number of neurological disorders. The work […]
