Tumors that Glow in the Dark

Dr. Liu from the Technical University of Michigan is developing a fluorescent probe that might help light up tumor cells. Some of the properties of this probe include: the ability to penetrate deep tissues, its infrared properties make the malignant

Genetically modified stem cells form cartilage resistant to inflammatory change

Inflammatory arthritis are a group of debilitating joint diseases that is a growing concern with the aging population. Inflammation within joint spaces promotes tissue degradation as well as prevents pluripotent stem cells from regenerating damaged tissue. In this study, researchers knocked
