We congratulate faculty member Yang Shi, one of four members of the Harvard Medical School community who are part of this year’s class of national and international leaders elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The vagus nerve is a key body-brain connection that monitors the respiratory, cardiovascular, and digestive systems. Within the gastrointestinal tract, vagal sensory neurons detect a diversity of stimuli including nutrients, nausea-inducing toxins, and mechanical stretch of the stomach and intestine. In a recent publication in Cell, the ...Read more >>
Harnessing natural genetic variants is a powerful tool for introducing genetic perturbations into a model organism. At the Jackson laboratories a cohort of genetic diverse mice known as the diversity outbred mice was created for the purpose of genetic mapping. The mice harbor millions of genetic variants which creates system-wide genetic perturbations in a single population. The Gygi lab, in collaboration with the Jackson ...Read more >>
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are thought of as toxic byproducts that cause injury to our tissues and drive pathologies associated with aging. However, recent evidence is emerging showing that under certain conditions ROS can be important signals in healthy tissue. In this study, the Spiegelman Lab examined these ROS ...Read more >>
