  • In vivo CRISPR editing with no detectable genome-wide off-target mutations - Pub Med, 9/18/2018

    CRISPR-Cas genome-editing nucleases hold substantial promise for developing human therapeutic applications1-6 but identifying unwanted off-target mutations is important for clinical translation7. A well-validated method that can reliably identify off-targets in vivo has not been described to date, which means it is currently unclear whether and how frequently these mutations occur. Here we describe 'verification of in vivo off-targets' (VIVO), a highly sensitive strategy that can robustly identify the genome-wide off-target effects of CRISPR-Cas nucleases in vivo. We use VIVO and a guide RNA deliberately designed to be promiscuous to show that CRISPR-Cas nucleases can induce substantial off-target mutations in mouse livers in vivo.

  • Tumours of the Central Nervous System (CNS) - International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting, 8/1/2018

    The International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting has published its first datasets on central nervous system tumors. These provide guidelines and detailed background information relating to diagnostic pathology reporting and are intended to influence practice around the world. Development of the central nervous system tumor datasets was directed by Dr. David Louis, chair of MGH Pathology.

  • Mass. General study finds amplification of multiple cell-growth genes in some brain tumors - 12/1/2011, Research

    A small percentage of the deadly brain tumors called glioblastomas, which usually resist treatment with drugs targeting mutations in cell-growth genes, appears to contain extra copies of two or three of these genes at the same time. The surprising discovery has major implications for the understanding of tumor biology and for targeted cancer therapies.

  • Combined arterial imaging technology reveals both structural and metabolic details - 11/6/2011, Research

    A new device that combines two microimaging technologies can reveal both the detailed anatomy of arterial linings and biological activities that, in coronary arteries, could indicate the risk of heart attacks or the formation of clots in arterial stents.

  • High-resolution imaging technology reveals cellular details of coronary arteries - 7/10/2011, Research

    Researchers at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at MGH have developed a one-micrometer-resolution version of the intravascular imaging technology optical coherence tomography that can reveal cellular and subcellular features of coronary artery disease.

  • Epigenomic findings illuminate veiled variants - 3/23/2011, Research

    Genes make up only a tiny percentage of the human genome, but the rest may hold vital clues about the genetic origins of disease. Using a new mapping strategy, a research team has begun to assign meaning to the regions beyond our genes and has revealed how minute changes in these regions might be connected to common diseases.
