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.
Novel anti-malarial drug candidate found
As part of a multicenter study, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have identified a series of chemical compounds that might serve as starting points for the identification of new classes of anti-malarial drugs.
Physicians bust myths about insulin
People diagnosed with type 2 diabetes often resist taking insulin because they fear gaining weight, developing low blood sugar and seeing their quality of life decline.
Researchers uncover biochemical pathway by which harmful molecule may raise Alzheimer's risk
A molecule implicated in Alzheimer's disease interferes with brain cells by making them unable to "recycle" the surface receptors that respond to incoming signals, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found.
Researchers find clues to why some continue to eat when full
The premise that hunger makes food look more appealing is a widely held belief - just ask those who cruise grocery store aisles on an empty stomach, only to go home with a full basket and an empty wallet.
Researchers find mechanism that may stop E. coli from developing in cattle
May 11, 2010 - Microbiologists at UT Southwestern Medical Center, working with the Department of Agriculture, have identified a potential target in cattle that could be exploited to help prevent outbreaks of food-borne illnesses ...
Researchers identify key molecular step to fighting off viruses
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have determined how a protein that normally latches onto molecules inside cells and marks them for destruction also gives life to the body's immune response against viruses.
Loss of gene function makes prostate cancer cells more aggressive
Prostate cancer cells are more likely to spread to other parts of the body if a specific gene quits functioning normally, according to new data from researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Link found between depression, early stages of chronic kidney disease
One in five patients with chronic kidney disease is depressed, even before beginning long-term dialysis therapy or developing end-stage renal disease, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have found.
Scientists use DNA sequencing to attack lung cancer
Aided by next-generation DNA sequencing technology, an international team of researchers has gained insights into how more than 60 carcinogens associated with cigarette smoke bind to and chemically modify human DNA, ultimately ...
New findings about brain proteins suggest possible way to fight Alzheimer's
The action of a small protein that is a major villain in Alzheimer's disease can be counterbalanced with another brain protein, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found in an animal study.
