Carlotta's Face: One Woman's Story of Overcoming Face Blindness With ArtVideo
This short animated film, co-directed by neuroscientist Valentin Riedl, tells the story of Carlotta, who uses art to overcome a rare brain condition that prevents her from recognizing faces.
Mastersizer 3000: Smarter Laser Diffraction Particle Sizing from MalvernVideo
The Mastersizer 3000 is the latest generation of the world’s most popular particle sizing instrument.
The particle size analyzer delivers rapid, accurate particle size distributions for both wet and dry dispersions with the minimum of effort. Measuring over the nanometer to millimeter particle size ranges, it packs exceptional performance into the smallest of footprints, bringing operator-independent measurements that every user can rely on.
EUCARPIA, the European Association for Research on Plant Breeding, provides a unique platform for meetings of the whole “production chain” of new plant cultivars.Watch Now
As currently applied, digital PCR can only be used to detect known mutations at single sequence positions, for 'hotspot' mutations.Watch Now
Higher eukaryotes, including plants, comprise tissues and organs comprising complex interspersions of different cell types.Watch Now
Necrotrophic pathogens live and feed on dying tissue, but their interactions with plants are not well understood compared to biotrophic pathogens.Watch Now
Developing and using sequence indexed, saturated collections of mutants allows us to understand the functions of nearly every gene. We have developed such a platform for sorghum, and will discuss it and ways to use this resource to make the long-promised functional improvements to both food and fuel crops.Watch Now
In this talk, Christine Dufes demonstrates that the intravenous administration of a tumour-targeted dendriplex led to tumour disappearance of 90% of the tested tumours over one month.Watch Now
In this presentation we will explore the opportunities afforded by the hybrid magneto-plasmonic nanoparticles and PA imaging for the development of a low cost simple and nearly real-time assays for capture, separation and enumeration of rare cells.Watch Now
In this talk, Martin Gijs discusses a novel magnetic surface coverage assay and a microfluidic tissue processor with applications in cancer diagnostics.Watch Now
Detection and Expression Profiling of Tumor Initiating Cells (TIC) Among the Peripherally Circulating Epithelial Tumor Cells from Patients with Breast CancerVideo
Katharina Pachmann shows that among the peripherally circulating tumor cells a variable fraction is able to express stem cell and adhesion properties and can be grown into tumor spheres, a property ascribed to cells capable of initiating tumors and metastases.Watch Now
