An in-depth look at the work of T-cells, the body’s bacteria killers, could provide a roadmap to effective drug treatments.
Closest look yet at killer T-cell activity could yield new approach to tackling antibiotic resistance
Printed meds could reinvent pharmacies, drug research
A new process can print multiple medications onto a single dissolvable strip, microneedle patch or other surface.
“Labyrinth” chip could help monitor aggressive cancer stem cells
A breast cancer clinical trial relies on a hydrodynamic maze to capture cancer stem cells from patient blood.
Bionic heart tissue: U-Michigan part of $20M center
Scar tissue left over from heart attacks creates dead zones that don’t beat. Bioengineered patches could fix that.
Reading cancer’s chemical clues
A nanoparticle-assisted optical imaging technique could one day read the chemical makeup of a tumor.
