In new research published in Cell, Assistant Professor Ahmad ‘Mo’ Khalil, graduate student Minhee Park and colleagues engineered a fully synthetic epigenetic system to better understand, study, and control its behaviors. Using synthetic biology, they constructed molecular modules that mimic features of natural epigenetic systems and found that they were able to induce epigenetic activities in mammalian cells, such as storing cellular memory.
Their research proposal has three specific aims, but overall plans to deliver a systematic understanding of the effects of a non-invasive brain stimulation technique, ultrasound neuromodulation.
Professor Muhammad Zaman and his team at Boston University are partnering with Merck Global Health to further develop PharmaChk, a user-friendly, portable device for testing drugs of questionable quality.
