IU researchers identify protein that contributes to tau neurotoxicity in Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine have identified a protein that interacts and enhances the spread of neurotoxic species of tau—which is primarily found in neurons that appear abnormal in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients.

New informatics software developed by IU School of Medicine researcher helps identify rare genetic variants

A team of researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine has developed specialized bioinformatics software designed to identify rare genetic variants in whole-genome sequencing studies.

IU researchers investigate brain’s immune cell response in Alzheimer’s disease

Indiana University School of Medicine researchers are investigating how the deficiency of a gene in immune cells can shape the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers studying new way to heal diabetic wounds by activating “hidden” mechanism in the body

Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine are looking for ways to heal wounds by using a healing protein that is active in fetuses, but largely inactive in adults and absent in diabetic adults.

Iron induces chronic heart failure in half of heart attack survivors, according to landmark study led by IU researcher

A multi-institution study led by Rohan Dharmakumar, PhD, of Indiana University School of Medicine, has identified that iron drives the formation of fatty tissue in the heart and leads to chronic heart failure in about fifty percent of heart attack survivors.
