Emery–Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) is a rare disorder that causes skeletal and cardiac muscle defects. In this month's highlighted paper, James Holaska and colleagues report on signalling pathways disrupted in EDMD and the potential for pharmacological targeting of these pathways to promote muscle regeneration.
David Tuveson, Director of the Cancer Center at CSHL, has dedicated many years to understanding pancreatic cancer and developing new models and therapies. In this interview, he describes some of the key moments and breakthroughs in his remarkable career and outlines his vision for the future of cancer research.
Multidisciplinary researcher Blanca Figuerola is fascinated by the chemical ecology of Antarctic bryozoans, so she applied for a Travelling Fellowship from Disease Models & Mechanisms to visit Angelo Fontan’s lab at the ICB in Italy. There, she learned new techniques to help her research into the specific compounds that give bryozoans their antibacterial and haemolytic properties. Read more on her story here.
