Magnetic nanoparticles could stop blood clot-caused strokes

By loading magnetic nanoparticles with drugs and dressing them in biochemical camouflage, researchers say they can destroy blood clots 100 to 1,000 times faster than a commonly used clot-busting technique.

Filling a void in stem cell therapy

A new porous hydrogel could boost the success of stem-cell-based tissue regeneration

BioTechniques - University of Illinois researchers have now devised a novel method to monitor how unfolded proteins diffuse inside the crowded environment of living cells and have found that their travel is significantly obstructed by their expanded size in tight spaces, as well as by chaperones that bind unfolded proteins to slow them down.

Electrode Implants for Brain Disorders

Neurosurgeon Emad Eskandar Thinks He Can Cure Complex Psychiatric Disorders Using Implanted Electrodes | MIT Technology Review

The outline of the lizard serves as a test object, as well as the conventional test pattern, a section of a so called Siemens star. The lizard’s tail and the converging rays of the Siemens star can be used to measure how well narrow lines will be reproduced in an image. With a diameter of six thousandths of a millimeter, the entire test object is about the size of a red blood cell. The smallest resolved structure has a width of 46 nanometers. Image: J. Geilhufe, HZB
