The keys to disease? Scientists reengineer one protein to fight cancer or to regenerate neurons



Researchers have made a new breakthrough using reengineered proteins to “unlock” abilities within the human body, which could stop cancer growth and may even regenerate damaged neurons. Stanford University bioengineer Jennifer Cochran has spent years studying and reengineering protein messengers known as ligands. Ligands regulate biological processes in our lungs, bones, blood vessels and other major organs and are therefore critical to the...
