Thus far, the feasibility to edit stem cells using CRISPR technology has been demonstrated in two key areas: modeling and investigating human cell states and human diseases, and regenerative medicine. In this article, we explore some of the latest research in these spaces and the approaches that scientists are adopting to overcome challenges in the field.READ MORE
Our reality is constructed through a combination of our sensory data. This process is called multisensory integration. In this article, neuroscientist Naomi Heffer outlines how exploring this process might help us understand how anxiety disorders affect our brain.READ MORE
We interviewed Megan Beggs, Registered Dietician/PhD candidate and Dr Todd Alexander, Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Alberta and Stollery Science Lab Distinguished Researcher, to learn more about the study and the wider implications the findings could have on preventing and treating bone diseasesREAD MORE
Just as soil testing is important to the farmer, working to improve upon current soil testing methods is important to the agricultural scientist. By ensuring that farmers and agricultural workers have access to the best possible soil testing tools, they will then be more able to protect and improve the health of their land as needed.READ MORE
To keep pace with the burgeoning biopharma market, research has also advanced antibody characterization and quality assurance. Protein biotherapeutics are inherently heterogenous and complex but techniques within the mass spectrometry field are meeting these challenges head on.READ MORE
Amino acids are the building blocks that form polypeptides and ultimately proteins. Consequently, they are fundamental components of our bodies and vital for physiological functions such as protein synthesis, tissue repair and nutrient absorption. Here we take a closer look at amino acid properties, how they are used in the body and where they come from.READ MORE
Mazes are an integral part of rodent behavioral research. In recent years, scientific data collected from maze studies have moved towards more cloud-based and electronic storage as opposed to traditional paper-based storage. In this article, we discuss modern mazes with Shuhan He, founder of maze developer MazeEngineers.com.READ MORE
An international team of researchers has found a potential drug that may prevent neuronal death through glucose metabolism modification in stressed neurons.
