Photo: (Graphic) Cross-section through the skin [31/01/2014] Researchers at the University Children’s Hospital Zurich and the University of Zurich have engineered skin cells for the very first time containing blood and lymphatic capillaries. They succeeded in isolating all the necessary types of skin cells from human skin tissue and engineering a skin graft that is similar to full-thickness skin.Skin Cells: Blood and Lymphatic Capillaries Grown for the First Time in the Lab - Read more

Photo: Graphic of woman with lost breast [30/01/2014] Contrary to existing understanding, long-term follow-up of patients with two types of breast tissue abnormalities suggests that both types of abnormalities have the same potential to progress to breast cancer, according to a new study. Findings from this study could improve clinical management of patients with breast tissue abnormalities.Hospital: New Data Contradict Current Recommendations for Management of Breast Biopsy Abnormalities - Read more

Photo: Horseshoe magnet attracts balls [28/01/2014] A network of chemists at the University of Konstanz has developed a method to study protein structures by means of magnetic labels. The ingenious thing about it is that the magnetic labels are directly incorporated inside the cell when the protein is naturally biosynthesized.
