MIT and Harvard use CRISPR to edit DNA gels for diagnostic devices

23.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

CRISPR is a powerful gene-editing tool that’s showing real promise in treating diseases like HIV, cancer, diabetes and a host of others. Now, new research from MIT and Harvard is showing how versatile this tool is, putting CRISPR’s genetic scissors to work in diagnostic tools and timed drug delivery systems. CRISPR works by using certain enzymes...

Paper filter from local algae could save lives in Bangladesh

19.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

The problem of access to safe drinking water in most parts of Bangladesh is a persistent challenge. Now, a team of scientists from Uppsala University, Sweden, and Dhaka University, Bangladesh, shows that a locally growing and previously unexploited green macroalgae species could be used to extract cellulose nanofibers, which can then be formed...

Nanocapsule reaches cancer that has spread to central nervous system in mice

14.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

Cancer that has spread to the central nervous system is notoriously difficult to treat. Now, UCLA researchers have developed a drug delivery system that breaks through the blood-brain barrier in order to reach and treat cancer that has spread to the central nervous system. In research conducted in mice, a single dose of cancer drugs in a...

Cyborg organoids offer rare view into early stages of development

12.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

What happens in the early days of organ development? How do a small group of cells organize to become a heart, a brain, or a kidney? This critical period of development has long remained the black box of developmental biology, in part because no sensor was small or flexible enough to observe this process without damaging the cells. Now,...

3D printing the human heart

9.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

A team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University has published a paper in Science that details a new technique allowing anyone to 3D bioprint tissue scaffolds out of collagen, the major structural protein in the human body. This first-of-its-kind method brings the field of tissue engineering one step closer to being able to 3D print a...

Scientists develop novel nano-vaccine for melanoma

5.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

Researchers at Tel Aviv University have developed a novel nano-vaccine for melanoma, the most aggressive type of skin cancer. Their innovative approach has so far proven effective in preventing the development of melanoma in mouse models and in treating primary tumors and metastases that result from melanoma. The focus of the research is on a...

Researchers build artificial cells that sense and respond to their environment

2.8.2019   |   Press monitoring

The artificial cells could be used to sense changes in the body and respond by releasing drug molecules, or to sense and remove harmful metals in the environment. However, in natural cells these chemical responses can be very complex, involving multiple steps. This makes them difficult to engineer, for example if researchers wanted to make...
