Chelsea Goodenough, PhDFrom a young age, we are told “You have to learn to walk, before you can run.” Cell function is no different.Proteins dictate cell function, but what proteins are found in our cells are dictated by the messaging transcriptsthat code for their production.

When the transcriptionrate of certain mRNA molecul...

Chelsea Goodenough, HBScBreast cancer is the most common type of cancer that kills women world-wide [1]. Emerging out from under the emotional and financial burden of this disease is the united front of patients, families and researchers alike seeking to understand the complexity of this disease. With exercise's noted benefit to a 30-40% reduction in breast cancer risk, investigation into mechanisms that may be attributing to these findings have unveiled a frontrunner - microRNA. MicroRNA ar...

Divya Talwar, BDS, MPHIn late summer, 2013, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, accompanied by her partner Brad Pitt, revealed at a press conference that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy due to a “faulty gene”. The “faulty gene” that led to Jolie’s difficult decision was the BRCA1 gene, and the preventive procedure reduced the risk of breast cancer from 87% to just 5%. Jolie could have kept the decision private; instead, she chose to share this news with t...
