Leveraging genetics to help inform drug target discovery

Posted 28/06/2019

A new study led by Professor Julian Knight at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and colleagues from the ULTRA-DD Consortium shows how genetics and knowledge of networks can prioritise drug targets for immune-mediated diseases. The Priority Index pipeline developed by first-author Dr Hai Fang is published in Nature Genetics.

Human Antibodies that Slow Erythrocyte Invasion Potentiate Malaria-Neutralizing Antibodies

Posted 14/06/2019
Researchers from the University of Oxford, including NDM's Professor Simon Draper, along with partners from five institutions around the world, have identified the human antibodies that prevent the malaria parasite from entering blood cells, which may be key to creating a highly effective malaria vaccination. The results of the study were published yesterday in the journal Cell.
