A Human Brain Model in a Petri Dish?

Case Western Reserve University

Research scientists around the world are now able to investigate the structural, cellular, and developmental intricacies of the human brain using bioengineered stem cell-based models called organoids. But the ethics to help guide researchers and regulators lag behind the technological capability to “grow” brains in a petri dish. That is about to change as a group of bioethicists and scientists chart the unexplored territory of neuroethics, which is quickly emerging from the ability to bioengineer models of the brain. The study, called “The Brainstorm Project,” will be led by Insoo Hyun, PhD, professor of bioethics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Mapping Genetic Differences in Breast Cancer Can Improve Care for Underserved Populations

University of Chicago Medical Center

A new study comparing DNA and RNA data from Nigerian breast cancer patients to patients in a United States database found that aggressive molecular features were far more prevalent in tumors from women of African ancestry than women of European ancestry. Those differences could explain disparities in breast cancer mortality for black women across the African Diaspora and hasten a shift to precisely targeted therapies.

Function of Neutrophils During Tumor Progression Unraveled

Wistar Institute

Wistar researchers have characterized the function of neutrophils, a type of white blood cells, during early stages of tumor progression, showing that they migrate from the bone marrow to distant sites and facilitate tumor cell seeding and establishment of metastasis.
