Chemical & Engineering News interviews David Cowburn, Ph.D., about conflicting reports on the efficacy of stapled peptides, protein fragments chemically locked into an α-helical shape, and their potential for drug development. Dr. Cowburn, who has used stapled peptides to interfere with HIV assembly, notes that stapling is not easy and many adjustments need to be made to create a peptide that will work successfully within a cell. Dr. Cowburn is professor of biochemistry and of physiology & biophysics. (Tuesday, February 05, 2013)

Nature.com interviews Scott Emmons, Ph.D., about his study that determined the complete neural diagram that governs male roundworm mating behavior. Dr. Emmons notes that his lab took the unusual but important step of measuring the strength of each neural connection, instead of simply counting the number of synapses. Dr. Emmons is professor of genetics and in the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience and the Siegfried Ullmann Chair in Molecular Genetics. (Wednesday, October 24, 2012)

American Medical News interviews Robert Marion, M.D., about prenatal whole genome sequencing, which can identify an unborn child’s risk of developing chronic diseases. Because this new test will provide detailed information on mutations of 20,000 to 25,000 genes, some of which will not be significant, Dr. Marion stresses the importance of preparing healthcare professionals to counsel expectant parents about the results. Dr. Marion is director of Einstein’s Children's Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center and chief of developmental medicine at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center. (Monday, August 27, 2012)

The Journal of the National Cancer Institute interviews Geoffrey Kabat, Ph.D., on the difficulty of proving the link between bishpenol A (BPA), a common chemical in homes and food containers, and cancer risk. Dr. Kabat notes that politics can trump science when enormous public concern exists about an issue, particularly when it potentially effects infants, like BPA. Dr. Kabat is a senior epidemiologist at Einstein. (Wednesday, April 25, 2012)

 
 

New Scientist interviews Vern Schramm, Ph.D., about his research on transition state analogs, a class of drugs he has been developing that target and neutralize specific enzymes in order to combat disease. Dr. Schramm is professor and Ruth Merns Chair in Biochemistry at Einstein. (Tuesday, March 13, 2012)
