Pesticides are widely used to protect food crops from damage and consequently have the potential to end up in the food we eat. Young children and babies can be particularly susceptible to pesticide residues in food so testing for pesticide residues in food, and baby food in particular, is therefore critical for the preservation of human health.Read More
To learn more about the impact AI has already had on diagnostics and health services, as well as some of its future capabilities, we spoke to Chris Scarisbrick.Read More
The first functional stem-cell derived neuromuscular junction model has recently been licensed, which could help the quest to develop new drugs to treat associated neurodegenerative diseases. We caught up with James Hickman, CSO, Hesperos, to learn more about the model, and some of the benefits it brings.Read More
Vascugen recently announced that it had licensed stem cell technology for blood vessel regeneration at IU School of Medicine, which could lead to new treatment options for patients suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease and Critical Limb Ischemia. We caught up with Carter Cliff, CEO, Vascugen to learn more about the technology and the science behind it.
Flow chemistry is playing an increasingly prominent role in drug discovery, enabling those in the field to streamline chemistry discovery and development efforts. Finding ways to reduce the time it takes to generate validated small-molecule compounds would be highly advantageous – which is exactly why scientists at Abbvie developed SWIFT.Read More
Native Mass Spectrometry (MS) can be used to examine proteins in their natural, folded forms. In this blog, Marshall Bern, Ph.D., the Vice President of Research and Co-Founder of Protein Metrics, discusses how advances in this technique are being paired with cutting-edge charge deconvolution algorithms to improve analysis of antibodies and plasma glycoproteins.Read More
The St. Jude Cloud is a recently-launched online data-sharing and collaboration platform that provides access to the largest public repository of pediatric cancer genomics data. We caught up with Jinghui Zhang, PhD, from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to discuss the cloud and its impact on pediatric research.Read More
Flow cytometry allows the analysis of physical and biochemical features of cells. Advances in machine that can characterize and sort cells will allow researchers to look deeper than ever before into the proteome and transcriptome. We talk with Bob Balderas, VP Market Development at BD on how the cutting-edge machines like the FACSymphony S6 cell sorter incorporate new technology and advance multiomics research.Read More
