The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center or UT Southwestern Medical Center is located in Dallas, Texas. UT Southwestern was founded in 1943. Since its inception UT Southwestern has become one of the most outstanding medical centers in the U.S. Four Nobel Laureates are on staff as faculty, 16 members of the Institute of Medicine and 15 members of the National Academy of Science. The University is ranked in the very top for medical school education, patient care and medical research in the U.S.
Physiologists uncover a new code at the heart of biology
UT Southwestern physiologists trying to understand the genetic code have found a previously unknown code that helps explain which protein should be created to form a particular type of cell.
Stem cell study opens door to undiscovered world of biology
For the first time, researchers have shown that an essential biological process known as protein synthesis can be studied in adult stem cells – something scientists have long struggled to accomplish. The groundbreaking ...
Researchers identify a switch that controls growth of most aggressive brain tumor cells
