June 14, 2021 -- Developing more effective methods to deliver drugs across the blood-brain barrier is the goal of a new collaboration being led by the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. Read More
How one mammalian DNA polymerase challenges the central dogma of biology
June 14, 2021 -- New research demonstrates how an unusual mammalian DNA polymerase can facilitate the conversion of RNA into DNA -- the opposite of normal polymerase function. The data, published in Science Advances on June 11, could challenge the central dogma of molecular biology that states that DNA makes RNA, which in turn makes proteins. Read More
NIH initiative tackles structural racism in biomedical research
June 14, 2021 -- A new framework to tackle structural racism was introduced by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) in a commentary published in the journal Cell on June 10. The initiative is an ambitious effort by the NIH to spur widespread, systematic changes across the biomedical research enterprise. Read More

Waters debuts mass spectrometer with MRT technology
June 9, 2021 -- Waters has introduced its next-generation Select Series multireflecting time-of-flight (MRT) mass spectrometer. The new system is designed to provide high-quality resolution at fast speeds to improve the clarity of molecular structures and their location in tissues for applications in spatial omics. Read More
A new way to account for evolution in engineered biological systems
June 9, 2021 -- A defining characteristic of biology is that life evolves. Traditional biological engineering views an engineered product as a final destination in the design process. However, the authors of a perspective piece published in Nature Communications on June 7 believe that a new perspective is needed for engineering of biological systems -- one that takes into consideration how a biosystem will continue to evolve over time.
