The first step in many cancer treatments is to surgically remove the tumorous tissue, however this often isn't enough in itself. As long as a few cells of cancer remain the tumors often grow back, but a new innovative spray gel, administered onto a cancerous site during surgery, may help prevent the tumors recurring...

Although we most commonly associate them with embryos, stem cells are with us for our whole lives, responsible for patching up damaged tissue throughout our bodies. But some types of tissue, like the heart, don't seem to be very good at this self-repair. Whether or not cardiac stem cells exist has been up for debate, but now European scientists claim to have created a cell-by-cell map of a
One of the more promising avenues in recent obesity research has been the investigation into the remarkable energy-burning characteristics of a specific type of fat, called brown fat. A new study from researchers at the University of Cambridge has excitingly discovered a blood-based molecule that can both increase the amount of brown fat in the body and activate its calorie-burning process
the exhibition offers a multidimensional experience where sculptural objects perform as the site for others' augmented reality works. The post in synthetic cells, michael rees layers inflatable vinyl structures with augmented reality appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Naturally, mammals can only reproduce sexually – which has its upsides of course, but it makes us a little less adaptable than other species that can do things by themselves. In investigating why that's the case, Chinese researchers have successfully managed to breed healthy mice with genetic material from two mothers, using stem cells and gene editing...

Discoveries of potentially life-saving peptides in the venom of deadly animals are, counter-intuitively, not all that rare. Scorpions, rattlesnakes and funnel-web spiders have all provided scientists with promising building blocks for next-generation medicines, and a dangerous Australian arachnid has again reared its head with a compound in its venom found to be a potent killer of melanoma
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic have identified a new target in the battle against dementia and age-related cognitive decline – zombie cells. More formally known as senescent cells, these are cells that have stopped dividing but don't die, and tend to accumulate with age. The new research reveals that many pathological signs of neurodegenerative disease can be eliminated by removing these
Extremely addictive and prone to being abused, cocaine is one of the most dangerous illicit drugs out there. Now, researchers at the University of Chicago have developed a novel form of treatment that could help cut back on a person's desire for the drug and reduce its damaging effects in the body. The method involves removing a small patch of skin, introducing genes that produce cocaine-d
†œIt took one year -- a little bit less than one year -- and we switched it from a totally different [game] to this action platformer," says designer Sébastien Bénard in this Dead Cells dev rumination. ...
