Precision medicine approach for leukemia awarded $1.5M
May 1, 2019 - Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. A team of researchers from The Ottawa Hospital and uOttawa is hoping to revolutionize treatment for AML by developing a “precision medicine” approach.
Stem cell researchers tackle muscle weakness in older people
May 30, 2018 - For most people, muscle loss is a normal part of aging that makes daily tasks harder. Muscle loss called sarcopenia happens more quickly, leading to falls and decreased mobility. One reason for this muscle loss is that stem cells that help repair ...
Researchers find biological role for puzzling protein
April 12, 2016 - An epigenetic protein called UTX has long been proposed to function in erasing “cellular memory” so that a cell can reformat its hard drive and become a different cell type. Research has shown that when mutations prevent UTX from erasing cellular
Dr. Jeffrey Dilworth awarded $2.3 million for muscle regeneration research
October 6, 2015 - Thousands of stem cells within our muscle tissue must make a difficult decision every day: Should I divide to produce another stem cell? Should I start becoming a new muscle fibre? Or should I just stay in bed? Dr. Jeffrey Dilworth was recently awa
CIHR grant helping to unravel the epigenetic mysteries of muscle regeneration
December 17, 2014 - Dr. Jeff Dilworth was awarded $834,000 in the last operating grant competition from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) for his research on muscle regeneration. Dr. Dilworth and his team are studying how two key proteins function in mus
