A recent report by the Georgetown Public Policy Institutes' Center on Education in the Workforce shows that holding a graduate degree in a STEM field is a significant career booster over degree holders in Non-STEM fields.
WASHINGTON -- A research team at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center say the new and powerful cells they first created in the laboratory a year ago constitute a new stem-like state of adult epithelial cells. They say these cells have attributes that may make regenerative medicine truly possible.
Neuroscientists at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) have discovered a brain anomaly that explains why some people diagnosed with autism cannot easily recognize faces — a deficit linked to the impairments in social interactions considered to be the hallmark of the disorder.
In a series of studies at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC), researchers are demonstrating how acupuncture can significantly reduce the stress hormone response in an animal model of chronic stress.
WASHINGTON — Internationally recognized lung cancer expert Giuseppe Giaccone, MD, PhD, has joined Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, a part of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Georgetown University Medical Center.
Researchers at Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center say the powerful cells they first created in the laboratory more than a year ago constitute a new stem-like state of adult cells that may eventually make regenerative medicine possible.
WASHINGTON — Scientists have long wondered how nerve cell activity in the brain’s hippocampus, the epicenter for learning and memory, is controlled — too much synaptic communication between neurons can trigger a seizure, and too little impairs information processing, promoting neurodegeneration. Researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center say they now have an answer. In the January 10 issue of Neuron, they report that synapses that link two different groups of nerve cells in the hippocampus serve as a kind of “volume control,” keeping neuronal activity throughout that region at a steady, optimal level.
