Immunohistochemistry Techniques, Strengths, Limitations and Applications
Immunohistochemistry exploits antigen–antibody binding to study the status of target molecules in tissues of interest. In this article, we explore how it works, factors that impact experimental design and its applications.
An Introduction to Electroporation – A Tool for Transfection and Competent Cell Generation
There are many reasons you may want to deliver something into a cell, be it genetic material or a therapeutic drug, and electroporation is a vital tool to achieve this. In this article, we will consider what electroporation is, how it works and how it’s used.
To the Depths of Drug Discovery
Natural products have been harnessed for their therapeutic properties throughout the history of medicine. Land-dwelling – or terrestrial organisms – have naturally dominated the focus of scientists wanting to access nature’s pharmacopeia. But an untapped resource of natural products, large in size and potential, was close by – we just couldn’t access it.
Dissecting the Complexity of the Brain at a Single-Cell Level
Understanding the brain requires an in-depth knowledge of its components. Advanced single-cell sequencing technologies are enabling researchers to explore the secrets of this complex and mysterious organ in unprecedented detail.
Inside a Ketamine Clinic: On the Frontiers of Psychedelic Therapy
The first psychedelic psychotherapy clinic in London opened this spring, offering clients a combination of therapy and injections with ketamine. As the hype around psychedelic therpeutics increases, we take a look inside the clinic and discover the complex promise of this new frontier of mental health treatment.
Principal Tools Uncovering Complexities of Novel Drug Target Discovery
In this article, Dr. Kenneth Oh discusses how a comprehensive qPCR–western blot–multiplex assay workflow can revolutionize drug discovery approaches.
Drugs, Vaccines and a Hopeful Future: Exploring Advances in Multiple Sclerosis Research
World Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Day recognizes the millions of people worldwide who are affected by this neuroimmunological disease. The campaign site for World MS Day 2022 strikes an optimistic chord, seeing the date as a chance to “celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future”. This year, there is more reason to buy into that optimism than ever before.
