Nanoparticles may be able to fight cancer

Washington University researchers have been working with mice models to test the ability of nanoparticles to kill cancer cells. These particles are activated by light and can be used anywhere in the body rather than just places that are accessed

Wearable UV sensor to detect sun overexposure

Scientists at Northwestern University have developed one of the world smallest wearables. The device is industrial strength and smaller than an m&m candy. It is solar powered and can help patients detect phototherapy and sun exposure for the treatment of

New Gene Therapy May Reverse Sickle Cell Anemia

After 10 years of research, scientists have found early clinical trial evidence showing the reversal of sickle cell anemia in two patients using a novel gene therapy. What could this mean for the future of gene therapy? Read more about

Scientists design way to track steps of cells’ development

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have developed a sort of “flight-tracker” for cells. This is allowing them to follow cell lineages as they develop and learn more about the checkpoints cells go through while growing and dividing. This
