  • A group of researchers in Japan have produced a butterfly wing-inspired structural color device for measuring the beating of heart cells, which they hope will help speed up the process of pharmaceutical testing. Their findings are published in RSC Advances. In the 17th Century two giants of science, Isaac Newton and Robert Hooke, were both […]

    Butterfly Wings Inspire Heart Drug Testing Platform

    A group of researchers in Japan have produced a butterfly wing-inspired structural color device for measuring the beating of heart cells, which they hope will help speed up the process of pharmaceutical testing. Their findings are published in RSC Advances. In the 17th Century two giants of science, Isaac Newton and Robert Hooke, were both trying to understand how the wings of butterflies and peacocks, which are made of the same material as our fingernails and hair, could produce colors of such...

  • Blocking tumor progression. Developing liquid biopsies. Engaging patients to find personalized treatments. They are all tantalizing ways in which scientists hope to make progress against cancer, a panel of experts noted Wednesday, even as steep challenges remain and the conversation around treatment evolves. “We have entered a new era,” said Tyler Jacks, the director of […]

    Cancer Researchers: ‘We have Entered a New Era’

    Blocking tumor progression. Developing liquid biopsies. Engaging patients to find personalized treatments. They are all tantalizing ways in which scientists hope to make progress against cancer, a panel of experts noted Wednesday, even as steep challenges remain and the conversation around treatment evolves. “We have entered a new era,” said Tyler Jacks, the director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.

  • Orthopedic spine surgeons don’t have a definitive way to promote bone growth, but a new bioactive nanomaterial, powered by sugar, shows promise at stimulating #regeneration. While the new method has only been studied in an animal model of spinal fusion, researchers say it could readily translate to humans. Read more here.

    Can sugar-coated nanomaterial get bones to grow?

    Orthopedic spine surgeons don’t have a definitive way to promote bone growth, but a new bioactive nanomaterial, powered by sugar, shows promise at stimulating #regeneration. While the new method has only been studied in an animal model of spinal fusion, researchers say it could readily translate to humans. Read more here.

    Hidden Immune Cells play Key Role

    Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered that a subset of immune cells called nonclassical monocytes (#NCMs), previously unknown to reside in the lungs, play a key role in driving , primary graft dysfunction (PGD), the leading cause of death after lung #transplantation. The study, published in Science Translational Medicine, also demonstrates targeting these cells could lead to novel treatments for PGD, a complication that currently impacts more than half of transplant patients.
