New research suggests that the tiny structures inside our cells that generate energy, called mitochondria, may play a role in our mind-body interactions and how we respond to stressful environments.
Many autoimmune diseases run in families, and because individual patients often have more than one autoimmune condition, clinicians have long suspected that these disorders have shared genetic predispositions.
CHOP Research’s Distinguished Research Trainee Awards provide institution-wide recognition for exceptional CHOP Research trainees, and offer an opportunity for mentors to highlight the work of their researchers-in-training.
CHOP's Antonella Cianferoni, MD, PhD, recently received a two-year, $140,000 grant to study the genetic underpinnings of the severe food allergy eosinophilic esophagitis.
According to new research, children born with a DNA abnormality on chromosome 16 already linked to neurodevelopmental problems show measurable delays in processing sound and language.
Scientists have identified four new genes associated with the severe food allergy eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).
Researchers from Children’s Hospital’s Division of Genomic Diagnostics announced that they had developed a unique laboratory test to characterize the genes that encode HLA molecules.
