The Microbial Anatomy of an Organ

University of California San Diego Health

University of California San Diego researchers have developed the first 3D spatial visualization tool for mapping “’omics” data onto whole organs. The tool helps researchers and clinicians understand the effects of chemicals, such as microbial metabolites and medications, on a diseased organ in the context of microbes that also inhabit the region. The work could advance targeted drug delivery for cystic fibrosis and other conditions where medications are unable to penetrate.

Navigational View of the Brain Thanks to Powerful X-Rays

Georgia Institute of Technology

Imagine Google Earth with only the street view and a far-away satellite view but not much of a map view. Brain imaging, for the most part, has been missing just that, and a lot of research on how the brain computes happens on that level. New imaging tackles this special view of the brain with the highest-energy X-rays in the country, generated at a synchrotron, that illuminate thick sections of a mouse brain.

New Approaches to Difficult Drug Targets: The Phosphatase Story

SLAS (Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening)

Discovering new drugs has never been easy and some potential drug targets have historically been viewed as too challenging and thus off limits for prosecution. In a new SLAS Discovery review, authors John S. Lazo et al. of the University of Virginia reflect on the nature of protein tyrosine phosphatases and explores reasons why these enzymes have been eschewed by drug hunters, and how the landscape is beginning to change.
