Tiny tango: Device sorts microscopic particles with speed and precision
...ere is a deterministic (non-random) way to do this really
flies in the face of conventional wisdom," said Austin. "It's something I never would have thought of." The device could greatly speed up and expand many areas of biological research and could largely replace some centrifuge devices that ar...
Late invasion of infected cells into the brain causes HIV dementia say Temple researchers

Single gene mutation muddying Parkinson's risk forecasts
... are you going to counsel patients? What does this really
mean?" Nutt said. Whatever the cause, Nutt believes counseling single-mutation patients about their risks of developing Parkinson's disease will be difficult at best. "You just don't know," Nutt said. "Clearly, if you have two copies, then we think y...

...eing on an IV for all a person's nutritional needs really
affects his quality of life, and it puts him at risk for long-term complications, such as bone demineralization and liver failure. Many of these children eventually require organ transplants to survive. Our goal is to take kids who've had this resect...
