New At-Risk Group Identified for Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

October 7, 2014

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have, for the first time, clearly defined the epidemiology of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), which occur primarily in the lining of the stomach and small intestine. One key finding: Patients of Asian descent, who have not previously been identified…

Measuring Cell-Cell Forces Using Snapshots from Time-Lapse Videos of Cells

November 5, 2019

A new computational method can measure the forces cells exert on each other by analyzing time-lapse videos of cell colonies. It could enable researchers to gain fundamental insights into what role intercellular forces play in cellular biology and how they differ in healthy and diseased states.
