'Dialing for Diabetes Control' Helps Urban Adults Lower Blood Sugar


July 29, 2015—(BRONX, NY)—Periodic telephone counseling can be a highly effective, low-cost tool for lowering blood-sugar levels in minority, urban adults with uncontrolled diabetes. The findings are the result of a clinical trial led by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and their collaborators at the New York City ...read more

Preventing HIV InfectionThe immune system’s natural killer (NK) cells rapidly kill virus-infected cells. In vitro studies suggest that these cells may help control HIV-1 infection by selectively killing HIV-1-infected cells. In a study published in the April issue of the Journal of Virology, Dr. Harris Goldstein and colleagues demonstrated that treating NK cells with the protein IL-15... read more


Targeting Obesity  Einstein researchers led by Dr. Ian Willis and collaborators at the University of Lausanne recently identified MAF1 as a possible target for treating obesity. While it was previously known that MAF1 regulates the expression of highly abundant non-coding RNAs, such as tRNAs, the new findings?published in the May issue of Genes and Development reveal a... read more


Monitoring Molecular InteractionsFor the first time, Einstein researchers led by Dr. Robert Singer have observed—in single living cells and in real time—the crucially important interactions that occur between messenger RNA molecules (mRNAs) and proteins that bind to them. These binding proteins help determine where in a cell’s cytoplasm the mRNAs will be translated into proteins. The researchers developed a... read more
