Harvard and Merck Partner for $20M Cancer Therapeutics Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Apr 18, 2016

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common form of leukemia affecting the blood and bone marrow, and has been responsible for 1.8% of cancer deaths in 2016. Because it is so prevalent, many research teams around the world study this disease in search of new treatment methods. One of these research teams, from Harvard University, has joined up with the pharmaceutical company Merck in a $20 million collaboration to develop new therapeutics for leukemia.

New Stem Cell Discoveries at Harvard

Posted by David Larsen on Wed, Mar 25, 2015


Hypothalamic neurons orchestrate many essential physiological and behavioral processes via secreted neuropeptides, and are relevant to human diseases such as obesity, narcolepsy and infertility. A recent collaboration of scientists from New York, Toronto, and Tokyo, and Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) researchers have devised two methods for using stem cells to generate the type of neurons that help regulate behavioral and basic physiological functions in the human bodysuch as obesity and hypertension, as well as sleep, mood, and some social disorders.
