First interactive model of human cell division

A research team from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory have created a protein map using 4D computer model that allows for real-time tracking of proteins during mitosis. The first interactive map of proteins that make our cells divide enables users to track exactly where and in which groups the proteins are that drive the division

New methodology of motor assessment for acquired brain injury devised by Scientists

Researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Hospital Instituto Guttman have developed a new methodology of motor assessment of patients with acquired brain injury that improves on current neurorehabilitation models. Due to the lack of objective assessment tools for patients with acquired brain injury, a team of researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in

New nanoparticles wait to release drugs, target infection – Researchers from Washington State University

Current WSU research shows stimuli-responsive nanoparticles can specifically target infections to simultaneously prevent the spread of bacteria and reduce the inflammation it causes. These microscopic particles are loaded with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agents which are released when the particles encounter infection in the body. Researchers in the lab of Pharmaceutical Sciences Assistant Professor Zhenjia Wang

Cambridge Uni Scientists find potential new target for lung cancer therapy in CRUK funded research.

Cancer Research UK-funded scientists based at the University of Cambridge have identified a new target for the treatment of lung squamous cell carcinoma. Published in Nature Communications, their research found that lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) cells contain high amounts of a protein called BCL11A, and that manipulating the gene responsible for this protein halted
