The goal of SafeCare is to teach effective parenting skills to families who are at risk for, or have histories of, maltreating young children (from birth through age five). At-risk families include young parents; parents with a history of depression or other mental health problems, substance abuse, or intellectual disabilities; foster parents; parents recently released… more »
A study led by researchers at Georgia State University provides new insights into the molecular basis of human diseases resulting from mutations in the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), a protein found in cell membranes.
A protein designed by researchers at Georgia State University can effectively target a cell surface receptor linked to a number of diseases, showing potential as a therapeutic treatment for an array of illnesses, including cancer, according to the research team.
ProAgio, which is created from a human protein, targets the cell surface receptor integrin αVβ₃… more »
An unprecedented molecular view of the critical early events in gene expression, a process essential for all life, has been provided by researchers at Georgia State University, the University of California at Berkeley and Northwestern University.
Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), a technique that studies samples at cryogenic temperatures, combined with state-of-the-art computational modeling, allowed researchers to… more »
Support the crucial work of the Mark Chaffin Center for Healthy Development and help prevent and redress child maltreatment, reduce family violence, and improve the lives of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Georgia State University will fund eight faculty proposals as part of its Next Generation faculty program, a successor to the Second Century Initiative, which has brought 61 new faculty positions to the university over the last five years. Funding for the proposals is expected to be about $2 million in the next year.
