MIT creates 3-D images of living cell
CAMBRIDGE, MA - A new imaging technique developed
at MIT has allowed scientists to create the first 3D images of a living cell, using a method similar to the X-ray CT scans doctors use to see inside the body. The technique, described in a paper published in the Aug. 12 online edition of Nature Met...
High blood pressure, low energy -- a recipe for heart failure

symptoms of heart failure when their hearts were forced to pump against high pressure. The hearts of normal mice took that pressure overload in stride and stayed healthy. Those contrasting outcomes suggest that heart health greatly depends on ERR alp...
