Research roundup: How prions replicate and more

BioSpace: Research led by Jiri Safar, professor of pathology, neurology and neurosciences at the School of Medicine, was featured in BioSpace. Safar and his colleagues for the first time identified surface features of human prions that allows them to replicate in the brain. This may have significant implications for a range of neurodegenerative diseases.
