Advanced Infrared Imaging Technique Scans Samples to Directly Measure Cell Composition

One infrared scan can give pathologists a window into the structures and molecules inside tissues and cells, enabling fast and broad diagnostic assessments, thanks to an imaging technique developed by University of Illinois researchers and clinical partners. [More]
Candid Photo Could Help Resolve Controversial Claims About Assembly of Nanocrystals

Candid Photo Could Help Resolve Controversial Claims About Assembly of Nanocrystals

A candid photo can reveal much more about the mood of a party than a stiff, posed picture. The same might be true for molecules, according to researchers. In a report appearing in the journal ACS Central Science, they report use of a newly developed method that can take a candid snapshot of how molecules really move in vitro and in cells. This information could help resolve some controversial claims about how nanocrystals assemble. [More]
Novel Fluorescence Microscopy Technique Shows Where Proteins are Produced

Novel Fluorescence Microscopy Technique Shows Where Proteins are Produced

Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and their international collaborators have developed a novel fluorescence microscopy technique that for the first time shows where and when proteins are produced. The technique allows researchers to directly observe individual messenger RNA molecules (mRNAs) as they are translated into proteins in living cells. [More]
