Researchers have created artificial cells that mimic biological cells by responding to a chemical change in their surroundings. The cells could be used to deliver and release drugs within the body.READ MORE
Creating “New Solutions” in Cancer Research: From Tumor-liquifying Microbubbles to Immune Cell TrackingNews Jul 30, 2019
Bursting cancer cells with microscopic bubbles and analyzing the immune system in real time are just two of the initial projects at the new Cancer Research UK Convergence Science Centre.READ MORE
Cancer researchers have uncovered a novel non-coding RNA "HULLK" that may drive prostate cancer, making it an attractive therapeutic target.READ MORE
New research suggests that the plant compound resveratrol, which is found in red wine, displays anti-stress effects by blocking the expression of an enzyme related to the control of stress in the brain.
A novel sensor designed by MIT researchers could dramatically accelerate the process of diagnosing sepsis, a leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals that kills nearly 250,000 patients annually.
Researchers have created “smart” cells that behave like tiny autonomous robots which, in the future, may be used to detect damage and disease, and deliver help at just the right time and in just the right amount.READ MORE
Researchers have developed an easily reproducible system that enables them to keep slices of human hearts alive for a longer period of time, allowing more extensive testing of new drugs and gene therapies.READ MORE
Researchers have discovered precisely why inactive LKB1 results in lung cancer development. Their new paper highlights how LBK1 communicates with two enzymes that suppress inflammation in addition to cell growth, to block tumor growth. These findings could lead to new therapies for NSCLC.READ MORE
A Phase I clinical trial is the first research monitored by the Food and Drug Administration that demonstrates the potential of regenerative therapy for hypoplastic left heart syndrome through collecting, processing and injecting an infant's own stem cells directly into the heart at the time of surgery.READ MORE
Researchers describe a new way to form an essential part of the artificial chromosome, called the centromere, by bypassing the biological requirements needed to form a natural one.READ MORE
