Australian plants extracting high-value metals from mining wastes

19.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

Increasingly scarce metals are being recovered from mining waste by University of Queensland researchers, who are making the most of native plants' metal-absorbing nature. Phytomining involves harvesting metals from the living tissue of a group of plants known as hyperaccumulators, which retain metals in high concentrations after absorbing them...

Permanent tattoos could be used to monitor long-term conditions

17.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

Many people get a tattoo as a means of making a statement. Thanks to new research into permanent tattoos that change color in response to certain biomarkers, that statement could one day be something along the lines of, "My pH levels are being monitored." The technology is being developed by a team from Germany's Technical University of Munich,...

Will your future computer be made using bacteria?

15.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

In order to create new and more efficient computers, medical devices, and other advanced technologies, researchers are turning to nanomaterials: materials manipulated on the scale of atoms or molecules that exhibit unique properties. Graphene – a flake of carbon as thin as a single later of atoms – is a revolutionary nanomaterial due to its...

Injected after accidents, nanoparticles could prevent paralysis

12.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

When a spinal cord injury occurs, sometimes it's the body's own immune system that causes the subsequent paralysis. In the not-too-distant future, however, it's possible that an injection of nanoparticles at the injury site may be able to rein in the well-meaning but destructive immune cells. Ordinarily, when they travel to the location of an...

Transformed tobacco fields could cuts costs for medical proteins

10.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

A new Cornell University-led study describes the first successful rearing of engineered tobacco plants in order to produce medical and industrial proteins outdoors in the field, a necessity for economic viability, so they can be grown at large scales. The market for such biologically derived proteins is forecast to reach $300 billion in the near...

Meat from a lab? Startups cook up alternative to slaughter

8.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

Memphis Meats, based in Emeryville, California, is one of a growing number of startups worldwide that are making cell-based or cultured meat. They want to offer an alternative to traditional meat production that they say is damaging the environment and causing unnecessary harm to animals, but they are far from becoming mainstream and face pushback...

Pathogen Engineered to Self-Destruct Underlies Cancer Vaccine Platform

5.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

A team of investigators has developed a cancer vaccine technology using live, attenuated pathogens as vectors. A feature of the vaccine causes these bacteria to self-destruct once they've done their job, making it safe for use in humans. Unlike "prophylactic" vaccines that protect people from the becoming infected with diseases such as...

Researchers Generate Model of Human Embryo from Human Stem Cells

3.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

Using human embryonic stem cells (ES cells), researchers have generated models of early human embryos in the lab that are more complex than any previous lab-generated embryo model. They’ve also shown that the application of the protein BMP4 causes these embryo models, called embryoids, to break symmetry, or go from a round ball to a structure...

Researchers grow active mini-brain-networks

1.7.2019   |   Press monitoring

Cerebral organoids are artificially grown, 3D tissue cultures that resemble the human brain. Now, researchers from Japan report functional neural networks derived from these organoids. Although the organoids aren't actually "thinking," the researchers' new tool - which detects neural activity using organoids - could provide a method for...

Researchers reach milestone in use of nanoparticles to kill cancer with heat

28.6.2019   |   Press monitoring

Researchers at Oregon State University have developed an improved technique for using magnetic nanoclusters to kill hard-to-reach tumors. Magnetic nanoparticles – tiny pieces of matter as small as one-billionth of a meter – have shown anti-cancer promise for tumors easily accessible by syringe, allowing the particles to be injected directly into...
