New tool reveals secrets of migrating cells

...haps in search of that life-altering signal. Robey hopes to use two-photon imaging to investigate the signals responsible for changing these meanderers into purposeful beeliners that immediately leave the cortex for the interior medulla of the thymus. "We're now at the point with this technology that we ca...

Research takes big picture of wheat streak mosaic

To stop evolution: New way of fighting antibiotic resistance demonstrated by Scripps scientists

...ire resistance to common chemotherapies. Romesberg hopes that if he and his colleagues can identify the molecules that human cancer cells use to drive evolution, they can find ways of intervening and preventing the evolution of chemotherapy resistance in these cancer cells. Last year Romesberg was awarded ...

Lack of coherent cloning policies reflects polarized debate, limited understanding, study says

...TORY "These widely disparate concerns, fears, and hopes have created a political impasse at the federal level," it explains; no federal laws have been passed regulating cloning, although Congress has considered numerous bills in every session since 1997. "Congress currently is gridlocked on cloning issue...

NCHC also leads a major project cal...

MIT tissue engineers implant viable, vascularized 3D muscles

... Mass.--For years, a major obstacle has dashed the hopes of creating "replacement parts" for the human body: the lack of an internal, nourishing blood system in engineered tissues. Without it, thicker tissues can't thrive, which has confined tissue engineering's practical application to thin skin, which ca...

Researchers grow stem cells from human skin

...sample of human skin." Next, Atala's research team hopes to test the function of the tissue that was created from the stem cells. "We've proved that the cells can be used to engineer tissues consistent with bone, muscle and fat when implanted in animals; now we need to test their function long term," said ...
