New Content for the new Basic and Translational Research web portal of the Penn Med News site

A new portal on the Penn Medicine News site, launched earlier this year, brings together basic research findings and discoveries emerging from Penn Medicine's laboratories. These basic advances impact the treatment of a wide range of diseases and medical conditions, as well as provide the foundation on which many of medicine's next generation of cures will be developed. The website now contains new content: a timeline of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) research, a feature on the complement arm of the immune system, a feature on RNA research, and new basic science posts on the Penn Med News Blog, as well as the usual links to Penn research in the news, investigator profiles, and research timelines. Coming up will be new profiles and features on the aging brain and sleep, among others. Please visit the site and let us know what you think.
