Exploring the deep connections between adolescent sleep and overall health
Fiona Baker of SRI’s Human Sleep Lab discusses how good sleep patterns are critical for brain development in our early years.
SRI seeks to learn how insects speak through smells
Understanding chemical communication among insects could help find new ways to protect crops or ward off biting insects that can transmit diseases.
SRI’s radioactive contamination treatment is now in its first-in-human trial
The work, conducted by a multi-talented team of scientists, will provide critical data to help establish the safety of HOPO 14-1.
SRI Biosciences’ highly specialized platforms marry the advantages of our cutting-edge research with our flexible biotech business model. Partner with us to leverage our rigorous early discovery and development to customize your specific applications.
FOX Three Molecular Guidance System™
Cell-selective, intracellular delivery of macromolecular therapeutics: Deliver essentially any cargo to selected cell types, and internalize into those cells to targeted subcellular locations.
Suite of automated tools leverages AI to recreate and scale literature-reported synthesis procedures. Solutions focus on key areas of route design, reaction screening and optimization (RSO), and multi-step synthesis development.
A rapid discovery platform for non-natural polymers that expands our access to 3-dimensional structural diversity with the synthetic accessibility and optimizability of small molecules.
Identification of peptide-based delivery agents that can selectively transport molecular cargos into the central nervous system without physically disrupting the blood-brain barrier.

Bedtime screen use behaviors and sleep outcomes: Findings from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study
We aim to determine associations between bedtime screen time behaviors and sleep outcomes in a national study of early adolescents.
Effects of emerging alcohol use on developmental trajectories of functional sleep measures in adolescents
We tracked developmental changes in polysomnographic (PSG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) sleep measures and their relationship with emergent alcohol use in adolescents considering confounding effects (e.g., cannabis use).
Association of Demographic and Socioeconomic Indicators With the Use of Wearable Devices Among Children
We examined whether demographic and socioeconomic indicators are associated with willingness to join a wearable device study and adherence to wearable data collection in children.
Emergence of terpene chemical communication in insects: Evolutionary recruitment of isoprenoid metabolism
We present the first structural and mechanistic model for the evolutionary emergence of TPS function in insects. Through identifying key mechanistic differences between IDS and TPS enzymes, we hypothesize that the loss of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) binding motifs strongly correlates with the gain of the TPS function.
Effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on screen time and sleep in early adolescents
This study examined changes in sleep habits and recreational screen time (social media, video gaming), and their relationship, before and across the first year of the pandemic in adolescents in the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study.
Genetically engineered pair of cells for serological testing and its application for SARS-CoV-2
We have developed a serology test platform for identifying individuals with prior exposure to specific viral infections and provide data to help reduce public health risks.
