In September, an HMS graduate won the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology for co-discovering essential steps by which the immune system responds to infection. Sadly, Ralph Steinman, New Feats and Frontiers This year the HMS community saw astonishing breakthroughs. Scientists unveiled an “evolution machine” capable of speeding genetic changes in bacteria; they also traced neural networks of the brain in three dimensions. HMS Such synergy is limited only by the imagination. One multi- disciplinary team is seeking new therapeutic targets by studying how infectious bacteria evolve as they move through their host.
