Old Skin Cells Can Be Reprogrammed To Regain Their Youth
Scientists have created a new method that enables stem cells to be converted back to their original, specialized form, but "rejuvenated".
Immune "Fingerprint" Could Improve Success of Autoimmune Disease Treatments
Most autoimmune diseases are easy to diagnose but hard to treat, but a recent study proposes using your unique immune cell fingerprint to identify rapidly which treatments will work for your autoimmune disease.
Identifying Risk Factors for Long COVID With Single-Cell Proteomics
In this interview we speak to Sean Mackay, CEO of IsoPlexis, to discuss how single-cell functional proteomics have helped researchers understand the risk factors behind long COVID.
How Do Milk-Producing Cells Change Over Time in Nursing Mothers?
For the first time, researchers have performed a large-scale, high-resolution study of the cells in breast milk, allowing them to track how these cells change over time in nursing mothers.
Immune Cell Conflicts Hinder Recovery From Muscle Loss Injury
After large muscle loss injuries, like gunshots, immune cells persist at the injury site for much longer than normal, preventing muscle regrowth and repair.
How Personalized Medicine Is Transforming Healthcare
In this article, we discuss some of the advancements that are bringing personalized medicine into the fore.
Single-Cell Sequencing Pinpoints Genetic Mechanisms Underlying Brain Lesions
Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) are a potentially risky blood vessel abnormality. In a new paper, Douglas Marchuk and colleagues identified that mutations commonly linked to CCMs co-occurred in the same cells. We spoke to Marchuk to find out more about CCMs and the advantages and potential of single-cell sequencing.
How To Choose a Spatial Biology Platform for Your Lab
In this article, Jason T. Gammack looks at some of the earliest applications benefiting from spatial biology techniques and walks through several key considerations to help scientists select the method that’s most appropriate for their experimental needs.
Detailed Cell Atlas of the Fallopian Tube Created
Single-cell RNA sequencing of nearly 60,000 cells from the fallopian tube has enabled the development of a cell atlas that could pave the way for new research into infertility.
Spatial Mapping of Single-Cell Data Within Tissues
A newly developed computational approach successfully combines data from parallel gene-expression profiling methods to create spatial maps of a given tissue at single-cell resolution.
