Retractable Protein Nanoneedles The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.Advancing Synthetic Biology Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.NIH Researchers Identify Striking Genomic Signature for Cancer Institute has identified striking signature shared by five types of cancer.CRI Develops Innovative Approach for Identifying Lung Cancer Institute has developed innovative approach for identifying processes that fuel tumor growth in lung cancer patients.Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Cancer Drug Target Visualized at Atomic Resolution New study using cryo-electron microscopy shows how potential drugs could inhibit cancer.Genetic Mechanism Behind Cancer-Causing Mutations Researchers at Indiana University has identified a genetic mechanism that is likely to drive mutations that can lead to cancer.Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Modifying Cell Lines for Target Discovery and Validation In this 30-minute seminar, we will discuss the process of genome editing, address factors affecting the design of a genome editing project, and explore the application of modified cell lines for target discovery and validation.
