Photo: Fried Egg [05/12/2013] Like a car with a front and back end, a steering mechanism and an engine to push it forward, cancer cells propel themselves through normal tissues and organs to spread cancer throughout the body. Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Florida have managed to turn these cells into shapes like a round fried egg and an exaggerated starfish that sticks out in many directions — both of which cannot now move.Cancer: Researchers Find Shape-shifting Stops Migrating Cells - Read more

Virtual training: "Students gladly accept the flexible learning option"

[01/12/2013] Instead of just sitting in front of a microscope, Bavarian medical students now also sit at the computer and categorize different tissue types. This is made possible by a project between the Universities and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. MEDICA.de spoke with Associate Professor Thomas Wittenberg about the benefits of virtual training.Virtual training: "Students gladly accept the flexible learning option" - Read more
