A research team from Los Alamos National Laboratory and Purdue University have developed bio-inks for biosensors that could help localize critical regions in tissues and organs during surgical operations.
A laboratory at the CDI has discovered a highly sensitive methodology that can efficiently find and harness EVs -- particularly exosomes and the micro RNAs they carry. These could be crucial clues to early identification of diseases like cancer
3D models of bone formation provide a tool for tissue engineering, biomedical research and drug testing.
Bacteria from an Indian landfill could help eliminate contaminated chemicals. The focus is on pesticides such as lindane or brominated flame retardants, which accumulate in nature and in food chains. Researchers at Empa and Eawag used these bacteria to generate enzymes that can break down these dangerous chemicals.
Russian scientists have developed a simple and easily reproducible cell labeling system that allows tracking the behavior and movement of individual cells when solving problems that require maximum accuracy.
Researchers at the Cluster of Excellence CIBSS - Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies develop technology to introduce genes into single cells in a targeted manner.
Cancer cells can develop resistance to therapy through both genetic and non-genetic mechanisms. But it is unclear how and why one of these routes to resistance prevails. Understanding this 'choice' by the cancer cells may help us devise better therapeutic strategies. Now, the team of Prof. Jean-Christophe Marine (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Cancer Biology) shows that the presence of certain stem cells correlates with the development of nongenetic resistance mechanisms.
Researchers from Hiroshima University now have a better understanding of the mechanism underlying how certain bacteria can transfer genetic material across taxonomic kingdoms, including to fungi and protists. Their work, published in Frontiers in Microbiology, could have applications in changing how bacteria perform certain functions or react to changes in their environment.
Chemical engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago and UCLA have answered longstanding questions about the underlying processes that determine the life cycle of liquid foams. The breakthrough could help improve the commercial production and application of foams in a broad range of industries.
Researchers have designed a device that delivers two medications that help stop HIV transmission.
