A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins and other institutions report that restoring tiny, hair-like structures to defective cells in the olfactory system of mice is enough to restore a lost sense of smell.
Individuals who were not born with an olfactory sense, or who lost the ability to smell due to a disease, could someday once again take in the sweet smells all around them courtesy of new research from the University of Michigan Medical School.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) this week awarded researchers at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh a $1.7 million grant to support the study of a pioneering approach to gene therapy
A five-country international team, led by Casey Eye Institute Molecular Diagnostic laboratory, BGI and Zhejiang University School of Medicine First Affiliated Hospital identified the NMNAT1 mutations as a cause of Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), one of the most common causes of inherited blindness in children.
Researchers from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Loyola University Chicago Health Sciences Division and their collaborators have isolated an elusive human gene that causes a common form of Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), a relatively rare but devastating form of early-onset blindness.
The sound of a horn beeping at you while driving, the chirping crickets after a huge rain storm, and your favorite new One Direction song -- imagine going through life not being able to hear any of it.
