High-Quality Cytokines for T Cell Culture
T cell-mediated therapies, such as CAR-T or tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes therapies, hold promise to transform cancer treatment to be more personalized and effective. Cytokines have a fundamental role in T cell survival, expansion, and differentiation.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in STEM with Jeanita Pritchett
In this episode of Teach Me in 10, Dr. Jeanita Pritchett, who has a deep-rooted passion for helping others find excitement in STEM and considers herself a "Jane of All Trades", will speak about what diversity means, why DEI policies and practices are an important factor in optimizing the science ecosystem and she seeks to address the question what everyone can do to help get us to a more inclusive environment.
Curing Corneal Blindness With Bioengineered Pig Skin Implants
Scientists have restored the vision of 20 people with corneal disease using bioengineered collagen implants derived from pig skin, as an alternative to donated human corneas which are in short supply.
Mystery “Jumping” Gene Helps Mice Survive Infections
A transposable element or "jumping" gene in mice has been shown to control the immune system in response to viral infection, promoting host survival.
Neuronal Networks in a Dish Could Help Understand Schizophrenia
Researchers have used MoNNets, lab-grown renditions of brain-like cell assemblies, to study schizophrenia.
3D Cell Culture: Will Organoids Add a New Dimension to Disease Modeling?
This article explores the world of organoids, their benefits and limitations, and where they may play a role in the future of disease modeling.
Radically Rethinking Scientific Publication: The “Octopus” Model
Dr. Alexandra Freeman believes that the major problems associated with research culture in science can be traced back to one source: the current scientific publishing model. In this interview with Technology Networks, she explains why a novel approach, called Octopus, is a logical solution to these issues.
The Science of Breastfeeding
To mark World Breastfeeding Week 2022, Technology Networks interviewed Dr. Alecia-Jane Twigger. Dr. Twigger is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge, where her research focuses on understanding how factors such as pregnancy and lactation influence mammary gland biology, and breast cancer risk.
What Does the Endocannabinoid System Have To Do With Autism Spectrum Disorder?
To learn more about the link between endocannabinoids and ASD and how innovative models are helping to study the ECS and its effects on the developing brain, Technology Networks spoke to Drs. Karen Litwa and Ken Soderstrom from East Carolina University.
