Innovative approach keeps cells alive during RNA extraction
Scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) and ETH Zurich have jointly developed an innovative single-cell transcriptome profiling approach, called Live-seq, that keeps cells alive during RNA extraction for further study while also being minimally invasive. Read More
Research furthers understanding of how cellular waste supercharges immune system
Van Andel Institute researchers have discovered that immune cells are much more flexible than previously thought in selecting the nutrients that fuel their function, including what was previously considered cellular waste. Read More
New technology reveals how environmental changes affect RNA structure in living cells
Researchers at the John Innes Centre in the U.K. have developed a new technology that is capable of profiling RNA structure at the resolution of a single molecule in live cells. Read More
NIH awards $10.6M grant to create atlas of aging cells
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a $10.6 million grant as part of the Cellular Senescence Network program, which aims to create a comprehensive atlas of how and where aging cells accumulate in tissues to advance potential treatments for age-related diseases. Read More
Cancer vaccine eliminates tumors, prevents recurrence in mice with metastatic melanoma
Tufts University School of Engineering researchers have come up with a method of targeting cancer in mice using an mRNA-based vaccine that is delivered directly into the lymphatic system, eliminating tumors and preventing their recurrence. Read More
Mayo Clinic, National Resilience to create center for biomanufacturing regenerative technologies
The Mayo Clinic and biotech company National Resilience have announced a strategic collaboration in biomanufacturing to deliver novel biotherapeutics for rare and complex conditions, with a focus on therapies derived from biologics for use in medicines. Read More
Nanometric photodiodes can activate individual nerve cells
Italian researchers activated individual nerve cells with a light impulse and this targeted, noninvasive approach could be used for studies into the nervous system as well as to develop new therapies. Read More
Now metastasis can be observed with an assay
University College Dublin researchers have provided a new mechanism for observing cell migration with a high-throughput spheroid-based migration assay. The assay uses a tissue-mimicking, fibrillar collagen type I extracellular matrix. Read More
New material prevents retear of rotator cuff injuries
A University of Connecticut team has created a graphene/polymer matrix that can be embedded into the shoulder muscle and prevent retear injuries of the rotator cuff. Read More
Monocytes, not neutrophils, are key to skin wound repair
New research reveals monocytes alone are capable of facilitating faster healing of skin wounds, which runs counter to previous beliefs that neutrophils and monocytes both performed that function. Read More
