Disease Research at LSI
Diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease devastate the human body and spirit. LSI scientists work tirelessly to fight these diseases at their most elemental, molecular level. Their efforts to probe the tiny world of human cells are driven by the belief that biomedical research will produce new understandings and treatments.
Focus on Labs
BLOOD CLOTTING & STROKE
Renowned geneticist Dr. David Ginsburg studies families prone to hemophilia and other bleeding disorders to understand how genes and biomolecules influence blood clotting, stroke and heart disease.
Dr. David Sherman dives the Costa Rican seas, harvesting the reef for sponges and their complex microbial partners .This ecosystem may be the final frontier in natural products based drug discovery for cancer and infectious disease.
Dr. Stephen J. Weiss, a world reknown cell biologist, is mastering how cells move through the body’s tissues to do their work. By applying his team’s insights into the molecular machinery that drives cell movement, they are developing new potential interventions for cancer, obesity and other chronic inflammatory diseases.
Dr. Alan Saltiel, charts the cellular universe to study insulin and its role in regulating the body’s metabolism. Dr. Saltiel’s team is making discoveries that may lead to new treatments for Type 2 Diabetes.
