Single-cell studies offer new view of how HIV infections persist

Single-cell studies offer new view of how HIV infections persist

Professor Iain Clark, in partnership with graduate program faculty member Adam Abate, was able to analyze single cells harboring latent HIV using a technique that isolates single, infected cells as tiny amounts of blood move through their microfluidic devices. Their work was featured in Science news.

Transfusing blood from an old mouse to a younger mouse causes ageing

Transfusing blood from an old mouse to a younger mouse causes ageing

New research from the Conboy Lab, highlighted in New Scientist magazine, has demonstrated that transfusing young mice with blood from older rodents quickly triggers ageing in the young, suggesting that cellular ageing isn’t just a case of wear and tear. This is one step closer to potential anti-ageing treatments and builds on years of aging research from Professor Irina Conboy.
