New Framework Leads to Surprise in Early Human Development

By Sara Tiner Sara Tiner (@saratiner)

Mayo Clinic and Yale University scientists have developed a minimally invasive process for studying early cell development in a living person. The team reconstructed the cell history of two adult volunteers from just after cell fertilization. They found that in the first cell divide — 29 years earlier for one volunteer and 66 years earlier […]

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Sara Tiner Cells in the body usually do what they’re told. In response to cues, cells divide, grow, shrink or die as needed. But there are some cells that start to ignore the body’s order to expire: senescent cells.

Nobel Laureates’ discovery paves way for research and patient care at Mayo Clinic

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Three pioneering scientists, outside of Mayo Clinic, who won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of how cells adapt to oxygen availability helped lay the foundation of research and patient care, enabling a unique service at Mayo Clinic — the von Hippel-Lindau Clinic.  “The understanding of how the body senses […]
