University of Leicester researchers have identified a genetic switch in the energy powerhouses of cells that could be a key target in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease.
Mimicking synapses in the brain, the artificial synapse is energy efficient and 'learns' with use. It is a new type of electronic architecture that could lead to a more brain-like era of computation.
To learn about some of the challenges of extracting plasma from blood, and how a recently developed microfluidic device could help overcome some of these, we spoke to Dr. Weihua Li.
Label-free viability determination and cell sizing.
Recipient of this year’s IEEE EMBS Trailblazer Award, Dr. Rogers tells us a little about his career and the work his lab is doing to develop biocompatible electronics such as the Lab on the Skin.
Scientists uncover neural connection that can prevent us acting on instinct.
A new, cost-effective technique has been developed which can detect Ebola within minutes, and could be used for real-time detection of the virus.
DNA methylation in muscle stem cells has been shown to be more common in obese than non-obese mice.
The function of young blood stem cells has been recreated by reprogramming functionally old cells, highlighting the potential of treating diseases such as anaemia and leukaemia.
