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

US researchers develop Nano-optic endoscope that penetrates deep tissue in high resolution

Diagnosing various diseases relies on biopsies of internal tissue collected from the affected region. In current practices, the use of endoscopic imaging techniques and conventional optical elements to access hard-to-reach areas have a high error rate because of the inability of current technology to visualise disease sites accurately. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and pioneers
