A significant step has been made toward breaking the so-called 'color barrier' of light microscopy for biological systems, allowing for much more comprehensive, system-wide labeling and imaging of a greater number of biomolecules in living cells and tissues than is currently attainable. The advancement has the potential for many future applications, including helping to guide the development of therapies to treat and cure disease. Read more at Science Newsline.
University of Utah researchers have developed “smart glasses” that mimic the function of the eye’s lens and automatically focus on what an individual is looking at. Read more at FierceBiotech
With help from a palm-sized plastic rectangle, researchers are hoping to minimize the problem of premature deliveries. The chip is designed to predict, with up to 90 percent accuracy, a woman's risk for a future preterm birth. Read more at Science Newsline.
3-D maps of gene locations could have a huge impact in our understanding of human health and in the battle against disease. Read more at Science Newsline.
One day, patients may be able to monitor their body's response to cancer therapy just by having their blood drawn. A new study has taken an important step in that direction by measuring a panel of cancer proteins in rare, individual tumor cells that float in the blood. Read more at Science Newsline.
