Researchers Find Eight New Unique Gene Mutations in Patients with Hereditable Heart Muscle Disease

Intermountain Healthcare

In a new study from the Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute in Salt Lake City, researchers have identified eight new gene mutations that may cause or contribute to idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, a form of heart disease not caused by known external influences, such as high blood pressure, obesity, smoking, or diseased coronary arteries.

U Biologists Experimentally Trigger Adaptive Radiation

University of Utah

Over four years, descendants of the lice evolved heritable color differences that spanned the full color range of the lice genus. This is the first study to show that the evolutionary changes occurring within a single species (microevolution) echoed changes among different species that diverged millions of years ago (macroevolution).

Promising New Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Moves Forward

University of Utah

A study published today in the journal Nature Medicine led by researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah (U of U) describes a new therapeutic approach with potential for patients with pancreatic cancer. These researchers discovered a combination drug therapy that may effectively combat the disease. HCI researchers first observed anti-cancer impacts in a laboratory setting and, subsequently, in its first use in a human patient.

Turning algae into fuel

University of Utah

A team of University of Utah chemical engineers have developed a new kind of jet mixer to produce biomass from algae that extracts the lipids from the watery plants with much less energy than the older extraction method. This key discovery now puts this form of energy closer to becoming a viable, cost-effective alternative fuel.
