Researchers at the Gladstone Institutes and UCSF have used a newly developed gene-editing system to find gene mutations that make human immune cells resistant to HIV infection.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Direct microbial sequencing of environmental samples, such as from ocean water, hospital surfaces, and the human gut, have illuminated the vast number of microbes present in our world.
Researchers at Maastricht University and the Gladstone Institutes tackled the challenge of improving the integration of disparate sources and types of data and advance scientists’ understanding of disease.
The White House invited Katherine Pollard to join the National Microbiome Initiative as a leader in the field of bioinformatics.
In their pursuit of cures for debilitating diseases, Gladstone scientists are approaching precision medicine from new angles, researching the microbiome and protein networks that are critical for human biology.
Katherine Pollard’s lab has invented a novel way to read and interpret the human genome. This technology opens the door to identifying drug targets that could treat genetic diseases.
Katherine Pollard shares science on big data and high-performance computing with an audience at Google as part of the Gladstone Open Classroom Talks series.
The most influential “organ” in the human body is made up of foreign cells—six pounds worth of microorganisms. Katherine Pollard studies the human microbiome to learn how it influences health and disease.
Gladstone has received funding from the National Institutes of Health to continue and expand two exciting projects in cardiovascular research. The funding, totaling more than $6.8 million, supports two teams of scientists and their research on congenital heart disease.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Several recent science studies have claimed that the gut microbiome—the diverse array of bacteria that live in the stomach and intestines—may be to blame for obesity. But Katherine Pollard, PhD, a senior investigator at the Gladstone Institutes, says it is not that simple.
Collaborations have been key to Gladstone’s scientific success since its founding, and its community believes that the biggest challenges in science are better met by bringing together researchers with diverse backgrounds.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes today are announcing their role in an unprecedented collaboration organized by the National Institutes of Health, which used groundbreaking methods to vastly improve our understanding of bacteria that reside in and on the human body.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA—What does it mean to be human? According to scientists the key lies, ultimately, in the billions of lines of genetic code that comprise the human genome. The problem, however, has been deciphering that code.
