A new microchip could help scientists uncover secrets of heart regeneration in baby mice.
Apocalypse now? The all-too-common practice of making climate doomsday forecasts is not just bad science, it's also a terrible way to communicate important information.
Researchers from Harvard University and the Broad Institute prove they can engineer botulinum toxin proteins (called proteases) to find new targets with high selectivity, a critical advance toward potential new treatments for everything from neuroregeneration to cytokine storm.
An international research team, including a biomedical scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU), has developed a high-throughput biological assay technique which enabled them to conduct a systematic analysis on the impact of nearly 100,000 genetic variants on the binding of transcription factors to DNA. Their findings provided valuable data for finding key biomarkers of type 2 diabetes for diagnostics and treatments.
UCLA materials scientists and their colleagues have developed a new method to make synthetic biomaterials that mimic the internal structure, stretchiness, strength and durability of tendons and other biological tissues.
New technology from Purdue University and Indiana University School of Medicine innovators may one day help patients who suffer devastating vocal injuries from surgery on the larynx. A collaborative team consisting of Purdue biomedical engineers and clinicians from IU has tissue-engineered component tissue replacements that support reconstruction of the larynx.
Measuring carbon nanotubes taken up by plants.
Boreyko's team is working toward removing large sheets of ice by increasing the amount of charge that comes near the frost.
One solution to agriculture's many challenges is to develop smarter fertilizers that aim not only to nourish the plant but also to maximize soil bacteria's positive effects on the plant. Researchers at Utah State University analyzed the effects of potential fertilizers on a health-promoting bacterium native to the roots of dryland wheat in Northern Utah, bringing the "microbiome revolution" to agriculture.
University of Houston biomedical researcher Sheeren Majd is reporting the development and testing of a new nano-carrier as a potential treatment to deliver highly toxic medicine to glioblastomas, the most common and aggressive form of primary brain tumors.
