Multi-organ "Human-on-a-Chip" Enables Long-term Toxicology Testing

Human-on-a-chip systems aim to reproduce physiologic aspects of the human body by merging human tissue with engineered BioMEMs systems to emulate clinical parameters. This technology opens a broad spectrum of possibilities to better predict the human outcome without having to rely on animal experimentation. Image credit: Hesperos Inc.



Hat Could One Day Reverse Baldness – And It's Cheap Too!


Few things on earth strike fear into the hearts of men more profoundly than hair loss. But reversing baldness could someday be as easy as wearing a hat, thanks to a noninvasive, low-cost hair-growth-stimulating technology developed by engineers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.


The Power of Genetic Testing – Picking Out the Best Drugs for Children With Cancer


A new study has shown the power of genetic testing to pick out the best drugs for children with cancer to extend and improve their lives – signalling a new era of precision medicine for young patients.


A Potential Drug Target for Diabetic Retinopathy


Approximately one in three diabetic patients develops diabetic retinopathy (DR), which can cause visual impairment and eventual blindness. Now researchers have discovered that high glucose increases the levels of enzymatic precursor, called lysyl oxidase propeptide (LOX-PP), that promotes cell death which could be a potential target for treating DR.
