MCW researcher receives funding to investigate lysosome storage disease treatments

Apr. 4 - The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) has received a 4-year, $2.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to study the mechanism of enzyme delivery to lysosomes and treatments for lysosomal storage diseases (LSD).

MCW researchers discover ancient cellular mutation leading to multi-celled organisms

Feb. 8 - Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) researchers Brian Volkman, PhD, professor of biochemistry, and Dustin Whitney, PhD, postdoctoral fellow, recently co-authored a study suggesting the evolution of an ancient cellular mutation 600 million years ago allowed single cells to evolve to multi-celled organisms.
