When organoids meet coronaviruses

24.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

Researchers from the group of Hans Clevers in collaboration with the group of Bart Haagmans (Erasmus MC) established an organoid biobank to search for the genes that are essential for the spreading of a SARS-CoV2 infection. Organoids are tiny 3D structures grown from stem cells that mimic organ function. To find out more about the host factors...

Virus/antibiotic combo recruited to kill resistant bacteria

22.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

Sometimes, viruses can help us. According to a new study, a combination of antibiotics and a bacteria-killing virus eradicates harmful bacteria better than either one is capable of doing on its own. The research was carried out by scientists from the Université de Montpellier in France, and the University of Pittsburgh in the US. For the study,...

Lab-grown coffee cuts out the beans and deforestation

20.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

As the world's population continues to grow, so does the strain we place on the environment in our efforts to feed all those hungry mouths, and part of the solution may lie in the lab. We've seen how lab-grown meats like rib-eye steaks, burgers or chicken tenders could help address the massive environmental costs associated with livestock...

Engineers grow pancreatic organoids that mimic the real thing

17.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

MIT engineers, in collaboration with scientists at Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, have developed a new way to grow tiny replicas of the pancreas, using either healthy or cancerous pancreatic cells. Their new models could help researchers develop and test potential drugs for pancreatic cancer, which is currently one of the most difficult...

Hydrogel produces oxygen to help heal chronic wounds

15.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

Diabetic skin ulcers often take a long time to heal, sometimes even leading to complications that result in amputation. A new hydrogel is designed to help keep that from happening, by delivering oxygen directly to such wounds. Developed by scientists at Missouri's Washington University in St. Louis, the substance initially takes the form of a...

Clone your camel: beauty pageants, races spur high demand

13.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

Cloning is in high demand in the competitive world of camel beauty pageants, leaving scientists at a Dubai clinic working round the clock to produce carbon-copy beasts. Not every animal is blessed with sought-after drooping lips and a tall, elegant neck, but technology now allows wealthy clients to replace their most beautiful camel with one just...

Anti-rust coating for plants protects against disease with cellulose nanofiber

10.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

A water-absorbent coat to keep rust away? It may seem counterintuitive but when it comes to soybean plants and rust disease, researchers from Japan have discovered that applying a coating that makes leaf surfaces water absorbent helps to protect against infection. Researchers from the University of Tsukuba have revealed that coating soybean plant...

Scientists give lab-grown mini-brains Parkinson\'s disease

8.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

Much of the prior research into Parkinson’s has been conducted in mouse models of the disease, but that’s far from a perfect analog of humans. Some of the most characteristic pathological features of Parkinson’s don’t actually appear in mice, leading to an incomplete picture of disease progression or experimental treatments. To help us crack the...

Self-Injecting Pill Could Allow Oral Delivery of Monoclonal Antibody and Other Protein Drugs

6.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

MIT engineers, in collaboration with scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Novo Nordisk, are developing a drug capsule technology that could allow the oral delivery of monoclonal antibodies, or other large protein-based drugs that normally have to be injected, for diseases ranging from cancer, to rheumatoid arthritis, to Crohn’s...

Researchers develop an engineered mini CRISPR genome editing system

3.9.2021   |   Press monitoring

The common analogy for CRISPR gene editing is that it works like molecular scissors, cutting out select sections of DNA. Stanley Qi, assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford University, likes that analogy, but he thinks it's time to reimagine CRISPR as a Swiss Army knife. The many different CRISPR systems in use or being clinically...
