Researchers have established a way to cryopreserve (or ‘freeze’) a broad range of bacteria using synthetic reproductions of the natural antifreeze proteins found in polar organisms. The new technique could radically improve the work to store and transport human tissue.
Immatics and Genmab to combine proprietary technologies to create transformative bispecific therapies against novel, proprietary tumor targets.READ MORE
Researchers from the University of California San Diego have identified an unexpected mechanism that could help determine whether a cancer patient will respond to immunotherapy.READ MORE
Leeches are still used in modern medicine, and knowledge about their anticoagulants is important in many ways, from rodent control to understanding host-parasite relationships. A recent study expands our knowledge about the diversity of anticoagulants in two families of leeches.READ MORE
Scientists have just identified a class of 'danger signals' that are highly efficient at triggering an immune response in infants and newborns. The discovery may have the potential to reduce both the age of vaccine administration and the need for multiple booster injections in infants and newborns, whose immune systems operate differently to those of adults.READ MORE
