Monash University scientists have discovered an enzyme that is key to why exercise improves our health. Importantly this discovery has opened up the possibility of drugs to promote this enzyme’s activity, protecting against the consequences of ageing on metabolic health, including type 2 diabetes.
Despite continuing challenges presented by the pandemic, members of Monash University’s Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) went above and beyond in their efforts to further biomedical science teaching and research. These contributions were celebrated at the Institute’s recent End of Year Celebration and Annual Awards event.
Monash University scientists have discovered the structure of the protein behind neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), a common genetic condition that causes tumours to form on nerve tissue.
Monash University’s Biomedicine Discovery Institute researchers have made a vital breakthrough in the understanding of a new facet of the immune response to malaria, which will help in the development of a vaccine.
Chronic infectious diseases have a devastating effect on global health. When someone is suffering from a chronic viral infection such as HIV or hepatitis C, their B cells get altered resulting in low-quality antibodies that are not strong enough to help the body clear the infection.
