A team of NUI Galway scientists have found that cells of the immune system have a previously undescribed ability. In a paper just published Journal of Cell Biology, the scientists describe the presence of primary cilia on immune cells. These antenna-like structures are found on almost all cell types in the body, but since the 1960s, it has been thought that they do not arise in blood cells.
A team of researchers at NUI Galway have made a major breakthrough in discovering how drugs interact with proteins in cells, which may have positive implications for the treatment of conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.
