Moving single cells around

20/08/2014 - Scientists at the Houston Methodist Research Institute have figured out how to pick up and transfer single cells using a pipette – a common laboratory tool that's been tweaked slightly. read more

Microchip reveals how tumor cells transition to invasion

19/08/2014 - Using a microengineered device that acts as an obstacle course for cells, researchers have shed new light on a cellular metamorphosis thought to play a role in tumor cell invasion throughout the body. read more

'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct faces

15/08/2014 - Researchers report that they have developed a "self-fitting" material that expands with warm salt water to precisely fill bone defects, and also acts as a scaffold for new bone growth. read more

New material for fast and accurate DNA sequencing

14/08/2014 - Gene-based personalized medicine has many possibilities for diagnosis and targeted therapy, but one big bottleneck: the expensive and time-consuming DNA-sequencing process. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have found that nanopores in the material molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) could sequence DNA more accurately, quickly and inexpensively than anything yet available. read more

Pairing old technologies with new for next-generation electronic devices

13/08/2014 - UCL scientists have discovered a new method to efficiently generate and control currents based on the magnetic nature of electrons in semi-conducting materials, offering a radical way to develop a new generation of electronic devices. read more

First conclusive non-invasive measurement technique in the spinal cord

08/08/2014 - Researchers in the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science (VUIIS) have achieved the first conclusive non-invasive measurement of neural signaling in the spinal cords of healthy human volunteers. read more

Speedier diagnosis of diseases through new DNA analysis technique

07/08/2014 - Long strands of DNA can now be analyzed thanks to a new tool developed by McGill University and Génome Québec. This technical breakthrough will potentially result in speedier diagnosis of cancer and various pre-natal conditions. read more

New prosthetic arm controlled by neural messages

06/08/2014 - Controlling a prosthetic arm by just imagining a motion may be possible through the work of Mexican scientists at the Centre for Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV), who work in the development of an arm replacement to identify movement patterns from brain signals. read more

New method provides efficient tool for tagging proteins

01/08/2014 - Aarhus University researchers have developed an easier method to create DNA-protein conjugates. The method can potentially strengthen the work involved in diagnosing diseases. read more

New anesthesia technique helps show cause of obstruction in sleep apnea

31/07/2014 - A simplified anesthesia procedure may enable more widespread use of preoperative testing to demonstrate the cause of airway obstruction in patients with severe sleep apnea. Dr. Joshua H. Atkins and Dr. Jeff E. Mandel of the University of Pennsylvania have developed a new "ramp control" anesthetic technique for putting patients to sleep briefly-just enough to show the "obstructive anatomy". read more
