Gummy-like robots that could help prevent disease

Researchers have developed micro-machines, powered by cell-sized artificial muscles, that are able to carry out complicated mechanical actions/stimulation of cells and microtissue. These devices could be employed in the future as implantable devices to stimulate tissue or locally deliver biological

Scientists generate functional, transplantable B cells from mice

Researchers report on functional B-1 cells derived from mouse embryonic stem cells capable of long-term engraftment and antibody production after transplantation into mice. These cells are promising for future therapies against a broad range of immunological disorders. Full article: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190207111301.htm

Simple drug combination creates new neurons from neighboring cells

Researchers have discovered a simple drug cocktail that converts glial cells neighboring damaged neurons into functional new neurons. This has promising implications for future treatments of neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease or stroke. Full Article: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190207173226.htm

Finding clues to a functional HIV cure

Scientists have identified a measurable indicator of HIV status in the form of phosphorylation levels of a regulatory protein called cofilin. This may serve as both a marker and new target for an immunological/functional cure to HIV infection. Full Article:

Scientists create a renewable source of cancer-fighting T cells

UCLA researchers are first to demonstrate a new technique for creating mature and fully functional tumor-targeting T-cells from pluripotent stem cells. This may lead to new approaches for cancer immunotherapy as well as T-cell therapies for viral infections or autoimmune

Quantum sensors providing magnetic resonance with unprecedented sensitivity

Scientists have produced a suite of new protocols that will allow quantum sensors to interface with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) setups that use large magnetic fields (i.e. MRI). This will allow the operation of NMR on the nanoscale and imaging
