Subtypes and Sex Differences Discovered in ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an almost always fatal neurodegenerative disease. Researchers have now discovered that ALS can be divided into subtypes and that there are clear differences in the molecular processes between men and women.

Hematopoietic Stem Cells Age Differently

Researchers at The Jackson Laboratory reveal that hematopoietic stem cells age differently in genetically identical mice, offering new pathways for interventions to preserve health with aging.
