Joe G.N. “Skip” Garcia, M.D., a member of the National Academy of Medicine, has been named associate VP for research at UF Health. He will be based at UF Scripps in Jupiter, Florida.
Enediynes can bind and break DNA, leading to cell death. As a result, they have enormous potential as antibiotics and cancer drugs. A new study reveals how nature assembles them.
A trailblazing scientist targets ALS, myotonic dystrophy, Parkinson’s, metastatic breast cancer, viral diseases and more by attacking key RNA, preventing disease-causing genes from being expressed in the first place.
Ciaran Seath, Ph.D. studies protein interactions in cells, using light to better understand disease and the effects of medications. He is joining the UF Scripps Chemistry Department. Promising new drugs sometimes fail when they reach clinical trials despite strong early data. A new scientist joining UF Scripps Biomedical Research aims…
The findings show it is possible to substantially accelerate the drug discovery process. The technique opens new doors to treating diseases by targeting their RNA processes, said Disney.
Lerner made major scientific contributions and built Scripps Research into a world-renowned hub of innovative science and medicine.
Disney designed the ALS compound by applying nearly 15 years of research finding druggable structures on RNA.
The natural products collection at Scripps Florida contains hundreds of thousands of organisms available for study. Advance provides new tools for synthetic chemists and biologists looking to probe and modify sulfur-based biochemistry JUPITER, FL—A group of highly reactive compounds called persulfides have provoked great curiosity among biochemists,…
Alicia Angelbello, Ph.D., a student of the Skaggs Graduate School, studied with UF Scripps Chemistry Department Chair Matthew Disney, Ph.D. She has been awarded the American Chemical Society’s Nobel Signature Award. UF Scripps Chemist Matthew Disney and Skaggs Graduate School student Alicia Angelbello devised a way to potentially treat a…
Like a carpenter switching drill bits depending on the job at hand, scientists at Scripps Research in Florida have changed an investigational medicine’s activity by swapping in different molecular tools, in the process, showing a potential new way to address multiple incurable diseases.
