Steve holds a PhD in Biochemistry from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, Canada. He worked as a medical scientist for 18 years, within both industry and academia, where his research focused on the discovery of new medicines to treat inflammatory disorders and infectious diseases. Steve recently stepped away from the lab and into science communications, where he’s helping make medical science information more accessible for everyone.
A DNA-binding compound can reverse the repeat expansion mutation that is associated with Huntington’s disease, an early study reported. This newly developed small molecule was also seen to reduce ... Read more
In a proof-of-principle experiment, a new gene therapy approach with the potential to treat people with Huntington’s disease has been shown to effectively convert astrocyte brain cells of mice ... Read more
Neural stem cell researchers at the University of California, Irvine, (UCI) will collaborate with AgeX Therapeutics to develop cell-based therapies to treat Huntington’s disease and other neurological disorders. Leslie ... Read more
Raman spectroscopy, an analysis technique that uses light, identified a specific molecular fingerprint in the blood of people with Huntington’s disease, a study has found. This technique may be ... Read more
An inability to correctly identify face-like objects and fewer brain signals associated with facial recognition were found in people with Huntington’s disease who had yet to show symptoms, suggesting ... Read more
Stem cells created from cells taken from juvenile Huntington’s disease (JHD) patients showed a delay in developing into mature neurons, but one that is reversible, a study reports. The study, ... Read more
