GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and the University of Oxford will collaborate to investigate diseases using technologies such as functional genomics and machine learning.
A new label-free technique has been developed for molecularly specific exosome biosensing in diagnostics and biomarker detection.
Researchers have identified a spider-like antibacterial mechanism by immune cells that could inspire Staphylococcus aureus treatments.
Imaging Mass Cytometry™ of malignant tissue architecture: rare single cells to structured multi-cellular communities
14 April 2021 | By Fluidigm
Watch our free on-demand webinar to learn more about using Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) to measure over 40 protein targets with subcellular resolution.
The heterogenous and dynamic nature of protein aggregates makes them a particularly challenging class of structures to study. In this article, Professor Tuomas Knowles and Dr Sean Devenish present a novel approach to studying protein structures that could aid in understanding the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease and identify future therapeutic…
Research from Oregon Health & Science University could lead to new therapies to heal nervous system disorders.
Researchers found that the type of brain cell afflicted in Parkinson’s-related brain disorders dictates which pathological form of α-synuclein (α-syn) protein becomes the disease culprit.
A new weakness found in medulloblastoma could lead to more personalised medicine and improved treatment for some patients.
Researchers have found that amyloid-? facilitates the interaction between the plaques and abnormal tau.
The multiplex and high-throughput capabilities of next-generation sequencing (NGS) allow researchers to study an immense number of DNA/RNA molecules per run, bringing opportunities to study biological or clinical research questions that could not be addressed before...
Research from King’s College in London, UK, and Lund University in Sweden could explain why diabetes drugs that have worked in animal experiments are not equally successful in humans. The researchers discovered differences – as well as hitherto unknown similarities – in the function of insulin-producing beta cells.
Cells behave differently when removed from their environments, just as cells that develop in cultures do not behave like cells in living creatures.
Ilpo Kulmala, Principal Scientist at VTT Ltd, explains the role that transportation plays in the spread of infectious diseases...
