Over the years researchers have made tremendous strides in the understanding and treatment of cancer by searching genomes for links between genetic alterations and disease.
Midshipman Mary Brass is just as strong as her name sounds.
Note for TV and radio: The University of Pennsylvania has an on-campus ISDN line and satellite uplink facility with live-shot capability.
One of the goals of genome sequencing is to identify genetic mutations associated with increased susceptibility to disease. Yet by and large these discoveries have been made in people of European or Asian ancestry, resulting in an incomplete picture of global genetic variation in disease vulnerability.
Since it was launched in 2007, the University of Pennsylvania’s all-grant, no-loan financial aid program has provided access to an Ivy League education to 7,475 students from a range of social and economic backgrounds.
University of Pennsylvania researchers have made another advance in understanding how the brain detects errors caused by unexpected sensory events. This type of error detection is what allows the brain to learn from its mistakes, which is critical for improving fine motor control.
A new University of Pennsylvania writers residency program will offer an undergraduate from Penn’s writing community the time and space to hone his or her craft in the Pacific Northwest for a week during spring break.
Penn Study Shows Better Outcomes for Sepsis Patients Treated in Hospitals with Higher Volume of Cases
Patients with sepsis, one of the most time-sensitive and hard-to-detect illnesses in medicine, are more likely to survive the life-threatening condition when treated at a hospital that sees a higher volume of sepsis cases.
An interdisciplinary team of engineers from the University of Pennsylvania has made a discovery regarding the surface properties of graphene, the Nobel-prize winning material that consists of an atomically thin sheet of carbon atoms.
The University of Pennsylvania is home to art galleries and museums, and there’s a plethora of art on display in campus buildings, but did you know that Wharton, Penn’s world-class business school, has a notable art collection, too?
