MIT Researchers Develop Novel Approach for Nanoscale Resolution Microscopy of Large Biological Samples

MIT Researchers Develop Novel Approach for Nanoscale Resolution Microscopy of Large Biological Samples

Researchers from MIT have successfully discovered a technique to physically magnify tissue samples by implanting them in a polymer, which swells on addition with water to enable high-resolution images. Since the late 1500s when the first microscope was invented, scientists have been devising ways to study preserved tissues and cells in a better manner. [More]
Tiny Microfluidic Device Helps Analyze Behavior of Blood from Sickle Cell Disease Patients

Tiny Microfluidic Device Helps Analyze Behavior of Blood from Sickle Cell Disease Patients

Patients with sickle cell disease often suffer from painful attacks known as vaso-occlusive crises, during which their sickle-shaped blood cells get stuck in tiny capillaries, depriving tissues of needed oxygen. Blood transfusions can sometimes prevent such attacks, but there are currently no good ways to predict when a vaso-occlusive crisis, which can last for several days, is imminent. [More]

More efficient medical treatments could be developed thanks to a new method for triggering the rearrangement of chemical particles. [More]
Tumor Microenvironment Could Play a Big Role in Nanoparticle-Based Cancer Therapy

Tumor Microenvironment Could Play a Big Role in Nanoparticle-Based Cancer Therapy

Nanoparticle drugs--tiny containers packed with medicine and with the potential to be shipped straight to tumors--were thought to be a possible silver bullet against cancer. However new cancer drugs based on nanoparticles have not improved overall survival rates for cancer patients very much. Scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill now think that failure may have less to do with the drugs and tumors than it does the tumor's immediate surroundings. [More]
