Gene replacement therapy that works in dogs to be tested in children

May 18, 2017 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , , ,

SEATTLE – KIRO 7 has learned of a revolutionary treatment, here in Seattle, that has saved the lives of dogs and is just months away from being tested in children. In video obtained by KIRO 7, dogs that were destined to die show no signs of the disease after a single infusion of gene-replacement therapy.  The […] Read More

IF you have a heart attack, hopefully you’ll survive. But your body will be forever changed. The world’s best doctors can’t undo the damage; instead, drugs and devices will help you live with a heart whose function too often dwindles. The body cannot replace muscle cells that die in heart attacks — maladies that help […] Read More

Allen Institute researchers have found astonishing variability of the intracellular organization inside human stem cells.

New portal vividly reveals the diversity of cell structures

April 5, 2017 | Categories: Announcements | Tagged: , , , , ,

Textbook diagrams of cells show a cursory membrane, nucleus and mitochondria. They have never adequately conveyed cells’ variation and complexity. Seattle’s Allen Institute for Cell Science has unveiled an online portal with stunning images of living cells, and  developed 10 stem-cell lines, genetically tagged with fluorescent dyes that cause different structures to glow. The cells are helping researchers […] Read More

A middle school student in Seattle is trying to pave the way for more girls to succeed in math and science. Elena Weitz, 12, is a 7th grader at Seattle Country Day School. She said her goal is to start a nonprofit to get more girls into STEM. “My favorite subject is science. I just […] Read More

Transfer of the MTM1 gene into the weakened muscle tissue of dogs affected by myotubular myopathy restores muscle strength. The disease arises from a genetic mutation that disrupts the production of a protein needed for muscle function.

Gene therapy treats muscle-wasting disease in dogs

February 15, 2017 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

Work on gene therapy is showing significant progress for restoring muscle strength and prolonging lives in dogs with a previously incurable, inherited neuromuscular disease. UW Medicine Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine scientists are leading the multi-institutional research effort. The disease arises from a mutation in genes that normally make a protein, called myotubularin, […] Read More
