Genome Editing Application Has Potential in Modifying Human Stem Cells

A unique genome editing tool known as CRISPR has been used by researchers for several years to fit, replace, disrupt, or add to sequences of an organism’s DNA. Now, scientists have shown that the system also precisely and effectively changes human stem cells, which could become a new advance in the use of stem cells for treatment and disease research.  More...

MRI Probe Combined with Magnetic Nanostructure and Antibody can Detect Alzheimer’s Disease Early

A noninvasive MRI application has been designed that can detect the Alzheimer’s disease in a living animal, well before typical Alzheimer’s symptoms appear. The researchers created an MRI probe that combines a magnetic nanostructure with an antibody that searches for the amyloid beta brain toxins responsible for onset of the disease. The accumulated toxins, because of the associated magnetic nanostructures, are revealed as dark areas in MRI scans of the brain.  More...

Protein Bioengineering Applications May Offer a Treatment for Huntington’s Disease, Improving Motor Function and Reducing Brain Shrinkage

Researchers have improved motor function and brain abnormalities in lab animals with a form of Huntington’s disease, a severe neurodegenerative disorder, by modifying the levels of a key signaling protein. This new findings may become the basis of a new treatment for individuals suffering from this lethal, progressive disease.  More...

Compressed Ultrafast Photography Designed to Aid Scientific Research

A group of biomedical engineers has developed the world’s fastest receive-only, two-dimensional camera, a device that can capture actions up to 100 billion frames per second. That is remarkably more rapid than any current receive-only ultrafast imaging techniques, which are limited by on-chip storage and electronic readout speed to operations of approximately 10 million frames per second.  More...
