Peer-Reviewed
Publications

Open access, peer-reviewed publications ensure that knowledge is a public good. HESI believes that accessible research is critical for equitable engagement, diverse collaboration, and increased interdisciplinary conversation. We strive to achieve open access on all publications, and more than 200 publications from HESI programs have been published in the last decade.

The benefits, limitations and opportunities of preclinical models for neonatal drug development

Increased research to improve preclinical models to inform the development of therapeutics for neonatal diseases is an area of great need. This article reviews five common neonatal diseases – bronchopulmonary dysplasia, retinopathy of prematurity, necrotizing enterocolitis, perinatal hypoxic–ischemic ...

Organocatalyst treatment improves variant calling and mutant detection in archival clinical samples

Most archived biological tissue samples are preserved in formalin. Formalin fixation of biological samples damages nucleic acids and limits their use in future genomic analyses. Improved tools are needed to increase nucleic acid yield, reduce artifacts, and facilitate analysis and interpretation of genomic data, ...
