Rewiring human cells to engineer novel therapies: Dr. Joshua N. Leonard's Group Publishes in Nature Chemical Biology
Dr. Joshua N. Leonard's group publishes (12/12/16) the paper titled “Rewiring Human Cellular Input-Output Using Modular Extracellular Sensors.” in Nature Chemical Biology. The paper provides details of the first synthetic biology technology enabling researchers to rewire how mammalian cells sense and respond to a broad class of physiologically relevant cues. Kelly A. Schwarz, a graduate student in Leonard’s research group, is the study’s first author.
