Observe cells with a software

Dear Sir or Madam,

Hundreds of different cell types exist in the human body. By using light microscopes, they can only be examined in a limited way. The Helmholtz Zentrum München, in cooperation with the Schroeder lab, developed a software which is based off the fluorescence microscopy. Researchers can investigate the quantity of proteins in cells for example. Prof. Fabian Theis explains in our interview how it works.

Have a nice day!

Fidgeting helps prevent arterial dysfunction from sitting

Previous research has shown that sitting for an extended period of time at a computer or during a long airline flight reduces blood flow to the legs, which may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease. Now, researchers from the University of Missouri have found that fidgeting while sitting can protect the arteries in legs and potentially help prevent arterial disease.

Research & Technology

New microfluidic chip replicates muscle-nerve connection

MIT engineers have developed a microfluidic device that replicates the neuromuscular junction - the vital connection where nerve meets muscle. The device, about the size of a U.S. quarter, contains a single muscle strip and a small set of motor neurons. Researchers can influence and observe the interactions between the two, within a realistic, three-dimensional matrix.

Sustainability: Hospitals can achieve a trifecta

Topic of the Month

Humans leave large ecological footprints on the planet. Nevertheless, sustainability - that being resource-conserving and environmentally oriented action - is still far from being a concern everywhere. The public sector, in particular, has a difficult time with this because sustainability requires initial funding to renew and adapt processes and technology. This applies especially to hospitals.

Lack of pharmacy access sends some patients back to the hospital

Hospital readmissions, a 17-billion-dollar annual problem, are higher in rural, remote or smaller communities that sometimes have significantly less access to pharmacies, according to a study published today that was one of the first to examine this issue.

Penn researchers improve computer modeling for designing drug-delivery nanocarriers

Researchers has developed a computer model that will aid in the design of nanocarriers, microscopic structures used to guide drugs to their targets in the body. The model better accounts for how the surfaces of different types of cells undulate due to thermal fluctuations, informing features of the nanocarriers that will help them stick to cells long enough to deliver their payloads.

Online marketing of stem cell therapy

Advanced economy nations led by Ireland, Singapore, Australia, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States have the highest per capita number of clinics engaging in direct-to-consumer marketing of stem cell therapies, according to the world's largest-ever study of such clinics.

To beat hypertension, take the 'clinic' to the people

Eliminating racial disparities in the outcomes of programs to control blood pressure can be accomplished with a few one-on-one coaching sessions delivered by health professionals - but not if the program requires people to get to a clinic, according to results of a new Johns Hopkins Medicine study.
