Adenosine bandages improve tissue repair
December 13, 2019 -- Researchers at Duke University have engineered a bandage that captures and holds a pro-healing molecule at the site of a bone break to accelerate and improve the natural healing process. The proof-of-concept experiment was conducted in mice, and the results were published on December 12, in Advanced Materials.  Discuss
Ghost imaging speeds up nanoscopy techniques
December 12, 2019 -- Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences describe a new unconventional super-resolution imaging, or nanoscopy, technique that processes nanometer resolution with fewer frames than traditional methods. This combinatorial process involves several processes to achieve super-resolution, overcome the diffraction of light, and capture changing dynamics with a faster technique.  Discuss
Scientists develop a first-of-its-kind in vitro 3D neural tissue model
December 12, 2019 -- Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have successfully used stem cells to engineer nerve tissues as 3D models of neural networks to study brain function. The work was published in the December 3 edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  Discuss
Leveraging new technologies to push the boundaries of our knowledge of cell biology
December 12, 2019 -- At the American Society of Cell Biology, European Molecular Biology Organization Joint Meeting in Washington, DC from December 7-11, emerging topics and new technologies were discussed and highlighted. Proteomics and genomics seemed to be a focus of the meeting. Many researchers presented novel ideas to incorporate new technologies in these fields to make discoveries in cell biology.
Open science for the modern scientific community
December 9, 2019 -- Today, at the 2019 American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) meeting, an important discussion took place surrounding the topic of open science. An esteemed panel of scientists, publishers, and regulators gathered to discuss where they see open access heading in the future.  Discuss
In vitro CRISPR system allows scientists to detect broad outcomes
December 6, 2019 -- As CRISPR technology advances, it is crucial to identify all unintended and potentially harmful changes introduced by gene-editing processes. A new study published in Communications Biology introduces a new system that details broad spectrum outcomes of gene-editing reactions in an unbiased fashion.  Discuss
Scientists identify chaperones as potential therapies for Parkinson's disease
December 5, 2019 -- Researchers from the University of Basel have identified the malfunctional relationship and master regulatory mechanisms between chaperone proteins and α-Synuclein occurring in Parkinson's disease. The findings were published in Nature on December 4.  Discuss
Scientists build artificial neurons to cure chronic disease
December 4, 2019 -- Scientists from the University of Bath have achieved a first-of-its-kind artificial neuron on a silicon chip that behaves like a real biological neuron. The technology, published on December 3 in Nature Communications, is intended to cure chronic diseases, such as heart failure or Alzheimer's disease.  Discuss
Scientists use antibodies to build nanostructures
December 3, 2019 -- Researchers from the University of Rome, Tor Vergata demonstrate a new model to control the construction of nanostructures using antibodies. The findings were published in Nature Communications on December 3.  Discuss
New microscopy technique helps scientists understand cancer growth and spread
December 2, 2019 -- Researchers from Duke Cancer Institute have developed a new technique to observe stem cell mutations occurring in colon cancer.  Discuss
