Northwestern Medicine scientists have created and transplanted an artificial ovarian system that induced puberty in mouse models, a first step toward a new approach to improving fertility in childhood cancer survivors.
Northwestern Medicine scientists used "big data" tools to classify for the first time three distinct categories of a common heart failure syndrome. The findings may be used to better predict how diverse patients will respond to treatments.
