Using animations and a walk through his lab, Dr. Steven Almo explains in lay terms why protein structure and shape are important in developing drugs to fight disease. See how proteins are turned into crystals, how X-ray crystallography works and how an immune cell’s ignition, accelerator and brakes can be manipulated to fight cancer or autoimmune disease. Dr. Almo is professor of biochemistry and Wollowick Family Foundation Chair in Multiple Sclerosis and Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Researchers at MIT have developed half-inch modular blocks that can be constructed to produced different diagnostic devices. They hope that their low-cost, easy-to-assemble half-inch creations will soon land in the hands of many small laboratories around the world, to improve infection detection and monitoring.WATCH NOW
