Clean energy 'bio batteries' a step closer
University of East Anglia researchers are a step closer to enhancing the generation of clean energy from bacteria. Research shows how electrons hop across otherwise electrically insulating areas of bacterial proteins, and that the rate of electrical transfer is dependent on the orientation and proximity of electrically conductive 'stepping stones.' This natural process could be used to improve 'bio batteries' for portable technology such as mobile phones and laptops powered by human or animal waste.

First genetic-based tool to detect circulating cancer cells in blood
Northwestern University scientists have demonstrated the first genetic-based approach that is able to detect live circulating tumor cells out of the complex matrix that is human blood -- no easy feat. The NanoFlare technology potentially could detect cancer cells long before they could settle somewhere in the body and form a dangerous tumor. In a breast cancer study, the NanoFlares easily entered cells and lit up the cell if a biomarker target was present, even if only a trace amount.

Researchers discern the shapes of high-order Brownian motions
For the first time, scientists have vividly mapped the shapes and textures of high-order modes of Brownian motions -- in this case, the collective macroscopic movement of molecules in microdisk resonators. Case Western Reserve University engineers used a record-setting scanning optical interferometry technique.

Bio-inspired bleeding control
Stanching the free flow of blood from an injury remains a holy grail of clinical medicine. Controlling blood flow is a primary concern and first line of defense for patients and medical staff in many situations, from traumatic injury to illness to surgery. If control is not established within the first few minutes of a hemorrhage, further treatment and healing are impossible.

Chicago Biomedical Consortium announces $3 million Infrastructure Initiative
The Chicago Biomedical Consortium (CBC) is announcing a $3 million Infrastructure Initiative to promote investment in high-impact, next-generation scientific equipment at its member universities. The Initiative aims to make modern and powerful tools available to the CBC research community at a time when federal grants for scientific infrastructure are scarce. The Infrastructure Initiative builds upon a previous agreement by giving each university $1 million to acquire novel, state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation to be shared under the Open Access Initiative.
