The scientific research culture at the Stowers Institute encourages individuals at any stage of the career continuum to push themselves to the forefront of their field.
They put themselves first, don’t help others, and will do anything to get ahead. They’re “selfish genes,” and they may offer new insight into infertility, disease, and even evolution.
Investigator Ting Xie, PhD, was recently awarded a new grant by the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health to study aspects of mammalian eye development and function.
Growing up in Vermont, Stowers Investigator Matt Gibson, PhD, was fascinated with the behavior and biology of insects, amphibians, and other small creatures.
To better understand proteins in their dynamic world, Stowers researchers used an advanced mathematical approach called topological data analysis to study two different kinds of proteins and their interaction networks.
JP McGinnis balances a research rotation in the Si Lab, medical school, and life as a new father
A new report from the Sánchez Alvarado Lab at the Stowers Institute chronicles the embryonic origins of planaria, providing new insight into the animal's remarkable regenerative abilities.
New research from the Zeitlinger Lab suggests the process regulating gene expression may be more like a battle between two opposing genetic forces rather than a step-wise assembly of ingredients.
Using molecular tools to manipulate a prion-like protein in fruit flies, researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have discovered evidence for specific molecular changes necessary for the formation, storage, and retrieval of memories.
