Scientists build genomic research platform to help treat cervical cancer

Yale Cancer Center

Yale Cancer Center scientists have built a powerful genomic research platform to study cervical cancer, a disease that often is untreatable if it progresses after surgery or primary chemo-radiation treatment.

Study Reveals How Collapse of Protein Processes is Driver of Aging and Death

Stony Brook Medicine

A new Stony Brook University-led study, to be published in PNAS, provides a biophysical model that reveals how damage accumulates in proteins with age and is a trigger to death. The finding opens a door to a better understanding of the molecular origins of age-related neurodegenerative diseases.

New Treatment Combination Could Work Against Broader Array of Cancer Cells, Study Finds

University of Maryland Medical Center

In continuing efforts to find novel ways to kill cancer cells, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) have identified a new pathway that leads to the destruction of cancer cells. The new finding, published this week in the journal PNAS, could pave the way for the broader use of a class of anticancer drugs already on the market.

Newswise: Thin to Win

Article ID: 720337

Thin to Win

University of Utah

University of Utah electrical and computer engineering researchers have developed a new kind of optical lens that is much thinner and lighter than conventional camera lenses that also works with night imaging. That could be a boon for smartphone cameras with those unsightly lens bumps as well as for drones and night vision cameras for soldiers.

Voltage gated calcium channels ‘read’ electric patterns in embryos to create cartilage and bone

Tufts University

Scientists have revealed how the electrical patterns formed within an embryo initiate a cascade of molecular changes that culminate in the development of cartilage and bone. The study demonstrates that voltage gated calcium channels ‘read’ the electrical pattern, setting off the expression of genes that guide differentiation to mature cells

New silk materials can wrinkle into detailed patterns, then unwrinkle to be “reprinted”

Tufts University

Engineers developed silk materials that can wrinkle into nanotextured patterns – including words, textures and images as intricate as a QR code or a fingerprint. The patterns are stable, but can be erased by flooding the surface of the silk with vapor, allowing the it to be printed again. Researchers see many applications in optical electronics

Supercomputing, neutrons unite to unravel structures of intrinsically disordered protein

Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility

Using the Titan supercomputer and the Spallation Neutron Source at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, scientists have created the most accurate 3D model yet of an intrinsically disordered protein, revealing the ensemble of its atomic-level structures.
