Carnegie Mellon researchers identify ‘Facebook neurons’

PITTSBURGH -- Carnegie Mellon University researchers have found that within the brain's neocortex lies a subnetwork of highly active neurons that behave much like people in social networks. Like Facebook, these neuronal networks have a small pop...

Carnegie Mellon researchers discover mechanism for signaling receptor recycling

PITTSBURGH -- An international team of researchers led by Carnegie Mellon University's Manojkumar Puthenveedu has discovered the mechanism by which signaling receptors recycle, a critical piece in understanding signaling receptor function. Wri...

PITTSBURGH -- Computer vision systems can struggle to make sense of a single image, but a new method devised by computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University enables computers to gain a deeper understanding of an image by reasoning about t...

Researchers use nano-particles to deliver gene therapy

Researchers have developed a new system to improve the delivery of genes, which could have the potential cure for several genetically transmitted diseases. Under the direction of Prashant Kumta, a professor of materials science, engineering and biomedical engineering, researchers are creating nano-particles capable of delivering DNA-based therapies for potential use in a variety of cancers and several genetic diseases. "We have developed a new system that will help physicians deliver their genetic life-saving payloads into enough cells to do some good," said Kumta, who has applied for a patent on the non-viral gene delivery system.
