A new scientist joining UF Scripps Biomedical Research, James M. Burke, Ph.D., is exploring how our innate immune system protects us from viruses — including the pandemic coronavirus — and how viruses evade these defenses.
For people with autism, overstimulating sensory experiences such as noise can have a profound effect on their lives. Now, a group of scientists at UF Scripps Biomedical Research has shed new light on brain development that can lead to autism-related sensory processing disorders.
Two of the nation’s most respected research institutions have closed their transaction that adds a Florida powerhouse meant to accelerate the pace of biomedical discoveries that benefit patients. Effective April 2, the Florida campus of Scripps Research is integrated with and will now be part of the University of Florida’s academic health center as UF Scripps Biomedical Research.
Pathogenic proteins help spread many neurodegenerative diseases. How they move between brain cells is often shrouded in mystery. But scientists at Scripps Research’s Florida campus have found that nanotube tunnels that act like roadways capable of transporting cargo between cells can transmit a toxic protein linked to Huntington’s disease from neuron to neuron.
Researchers at Scripps Research’s Florida campus have discovered how normal ribosomes are “remodeled” into different subtypes as a response to cellular stress.
The University of Florida has purchased The Scripps Research Institute’s three buildings in Jupiter and 70 empty acres once reserved for Scripps nearby in Palm Beach Gardens.
The University of Florida and California-based Scripps Research have signed a definitive agreement to welcome the Florida branch of the science powerhouse into the research arm of UF’s academic health center — a step aimed at accelerating the translation of basic scientific discoveries into clinical advances that benefit human health in the state and beyond.
In a move designed to marry the clinical and educational expertise of the state’s flagship university with one of the world’s premier biomedical research enterprises, the University of Florida and Scripps Research announced they are in talks to integrate the Florida-based branch of Scripps Research with the research arm of UF’s academic health center.
