Human Organs-on-Chips for Disease Modeling, Drug Development and Personalized Medicine
Speaking at the online symposium, Innovations in Disease Modeling 2022, Dr. Donald E. Ingber, Founding Director of Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, presented his talk on novel human organ-on-a-chip technologies
Your Gut Microbiome: The Most Important Organ You’ve Never Heard of
Dr. Erika Ebbel Angle discusses why the gut microbiome is the most important organ you’ve probably never heard of.
Opinionated Science Episode 39: The Science of Christmas Dinner
In this bumper episode, the team review a series of studies from the last year that investigate Christmassy food. Could the future of Christmas dinner involve a cell culture roast, unnaturally smooth chocolate and fractal cauliflower?
Opinionated Science Episode 38: Do Gut Microbes Play a Role in Autism?
In this episode, the team examine a new study that challenges the notion that gut microbes may play a causal role in autism spectrum disorder. Might a link once ascribed to signaling from the gut’s nervous system actually just be a consequence of restricted diet?
Opinionated Science Episode 35: Mighty Microbes Battle Cancer and Protect the Environment
In this episode, the Technology Networks team review a pair of studies showing off the power of microbes. In one, they act as a conduit in an unlikely potential health benefit for a high-salt diet. In the other, they are revealed to play an important role in the breakdown of plastic in the environment.
Gut Bacteria Can Boost Response to Cancer Immunotherapy
A new study led by Scripps Research scientist Howard Hang, PhD, explains how and why a certain species of bacteria in the digestive tract significantly improves the tumor-fighting ability of approved cancer drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors.
