University of Toronto scientists have discovered a better way to extract proteins from the membranes that encase them, making it easier to study how cells communicate with each other to create human health and disease.
A new set of machine learning algorithms developed by U of T researchers that can generate 3D structures of tiny protein molecules may revolutionize the development of drug therapies for a range of diseases from Alzheimer’s to cancer.
Men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer have different risks of dying. In many men with “intermediate” risk, the disease appears localized and is curable with radiotherapy or surgery. But for about a third of these men, initial treatments will fail due to hidden metastasis outside the prostate.
