    The reversal of spinal cord injury (SCI) and its devastating effect on voluntary control is one of the most provocative challenges in neuroscience research. Preclinical and clinical research has for a very long time tried ...
  • Molecular mechanisms and targets of new anticancer treatments 

    Saei Dibavar, Amirata (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2019-02-06)
    The work presented in this thesis is an effort to decipher and understand the mechanism of action (MOA) of anticancer agents by building on and complementing chemical proteomics methods. The backbone of the thesis relies ...
  • Decoding the contribution of transcription factors to cell fate determination 

    Wei, Bei (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2018-11-19)
    It is well accepted that transcription factors (TFs) play a crucial role in determining cell identity. Although RNA expression or protein abundance data show that a large fraction of the total TFs are expressed in a given ...
  • Kidney diseases : insights from omics approaches 

    Guo, Jing (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2018-11-12)
    Chronic kidney diseases (CKDs) affects about 11-15% of adults worldwide. When it progresses to the end-stage renal disease (ESRD), there is no effective medication for cure, the only treatment being chronic dialysis or ...
  • Lineages and molecular heterogeneity in the developing nervous system 

    La Manno, Gioele (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2018-09-28)
    Information in the genome unfolds through a dynamic process leading to the molecular and anatomical organization of a physiologically functional organism. The nervous system is the most diverse and intricate architecture ...
  • From genes to function in autoimmunity - a salty story 

    Vaartjes, Daniëlle (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2018-05-24)
    Autoimmunity is a condition in which the ability to tolerate self breaks down, resulting in immune responses against the body’s own healthy cells and tissues. Autoimmune diseases are complex and multifactorial, and both ...
  • Functional investigation of prognostic biomarkers and therapeutic targets in glioma brain tumors 

    M Goudarzi, Kaveh (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2018-04-06)
