We take a look at the development of some advanced regenerative medicine treatments that incorporate tissue transplants, drugs, and genetic engineering.
Dan Huh talks about how bioengineers could use microengineering technologies to build more realistic models of human organs using organ-on-a-chip technology.
In vivo imaging of neurotensin neurons in the medial preoptic area shows activity in these neurons releases dopamine downstream and drives social attraction towards the opposite sex.
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.
Dr. Chulan Kwon tells us about a new method to generate mature cardiac muscle cells from pluripotent stem cells.
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.
