Surgeons predict the future of nanomedicine in practice

A new review published in WIREs Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology explores how nanotechnology may provide powerful new tools that could have a marked impact on the therapeutic and diagnostic measures available to surgeons. Nanotechnology uses very...

New microscopy method opens window on previously unseen cell features

Despite the sophistication and range of contemporary microscopy techniques, many important biological phenomena still elude the precision of even the most sensitive tools. The need for refined imaging methods for fundamental research and biomedical ...

MRI contrast agents change stem cell proliferation

Tampa, Fla. (Nov. 01, 2010) -- When researchers tested three different labeling agents on three different stem cell populations to determine what effect the labeling agents had on stem cell phenotype, biological behavior and migration abilities, ...

Bioelectrical signals turn stem cells’ progeny cancerous

MEDFORD/SOMERVILLE, Mass.--Biologists at Tufts University School of Arts and Sciences have discovered that a change in membrane voltage in newly identified "instructor cells" can cause stem cells' descendants to trigger melanoma-like growth in p...

Stem cells shape up to their surroundings

London, UK (October, 07, 2010) -- Many scientists aspire to take control over the stem cell differentiation process, so that we can grow organs and implants perfectly matched to each patient in the future. Now research in the Journal of Tissue Engi...

Physical environment influences stem cell development

Jerusalem -- September 6, 2010 -- A researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, together with Israeli and foreign collaborators, has revealed how physical qualities -- and not only chemical ones -- may have an influence in determining...

Natural lung material is promising scaffold for engineering lung tissue using...

New Rochelle, NY, August 19, 2010 -- The first successful report of using cell-depleted lung as a natural growth matrix for generating new rat lung from embryonic stem cells is presented in a breakthrough article in Tissue Engineering, Part A, a...
