Salk Institute Professor Sydney Brenner Receives 2002 Nobel Prize for Medicine

La Jolla, CA – Sydney Brenner, a distinguished professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, is one of three recipients of this year's Nobel Prize in medicine for his contributions toward discoveries about how genes regulate organ growth and the process of programmed cell death.

HIV Targets Active Genes in Cells

La Jolla, CA – HIV selectively inserts itself into active areas of a host cell's genome, Salk Institute researchers have found for the first time. The fact that the virus hooks itself up to areas of the cell's genome that are busy expressing themselves may help explain why HIV can replicate, or reproduce itself, so rapidly. The findings are being published as the cover article in the Friday, August 23, issue of the journal Cell.

Gene Therapy Reverses Male Infertility In Salk-led Study

La Jolla, CA – A team led by Salk Institute scientists has used gene therapy to reverse infertility in male mice. Treated mice produced healthy offspring that did not contain the introduced gene or vector, alleviating concerns that treating infertility via gene therapy would genetically alter any progeny produced from the treatment, as well as their descendants in perpetuity.

Potential Link Found Between Breast Cancer Drug and Cardiac Failure

La Jolla, CA – A team led by Salk scientists has identified the probable link between the breast cancer drug Herceptin and cardiac failure, one of its common side effects. The results may also explain why a common combination drug regimen including Herceptin is particularly toxic.

New View of Brain's Inner Workings Opens Research Into Autism, Other Disorders

La Jolla, CA – According to accepted dogma, the brain responds to sensory experiences somewhat like an electronic bucket brigade, with incoming signals passed from one region to the next in a somewhat linear fashion.

Global Plant Study by Salk Scientists Identifies Light-Adjusting Gene

La Jolla, CA – In the first global survey of its kind, scientists at The Salk Institute have isolated a genetic switch that controls how plants growing at different latitudes respond to light. The variation ensures that plants in northern climes near the poles, for example, are more sensitive to light than their counterparts closer to the equator.
