How one company is helping make complex medicines safer
Often, the most dangerous things in life are things that the human eye cannot see. This is true even for life-saving medicines. One company was founded to help the industry find these hidden particles and solve a key challenge in the development of complex drug products. Halo Labs’ CEO Rick Gordon spoke with ScienceBoard about how its low volume approach is providing a critical service for the drug development industry. Read More
Federal R&D funding for universities tops 3% in fiscal year 2021
Federally funded R&D for U.S. higher education universities grew 3.3% to $86.4 billion in fiscal year 2021 (end-September 30, 2021), according to the latest statistics from the National Science Foundation. Funding from the federal government accounted for 53% of the total and increased 3.7%. Read More
Newfound understanding of tissue migration can harness cancer spread
New research has uncovered mechanistic details in living tissue that explain how tissue exercises physical stresses to induce motion in vivo. The study, published in Nature Cell Biology on February 14, documents that the rear end of moving tissue plays a primary role in pushing tissue forward. This finding could be the basis for understanding organ development and the spread of cancer. Read More
