    • Vicki Glaser
    • At the Image Informatics and Computational Biology Unit in the Laboratory of Genetics at the NIH, Ilya Goldberg, PhD, head of the unit, and colleagues are developing computational strategies based on pattern recognition to derive and interpret quantitative measurements from ... more »
    • Single-Use Systems Become the Norm
    • Angelo DePalma
    • Over the last few years, disposable biomanufacturing has shed its reputation for isolated, low-tech storage and hold applications to an over-arching strategy appropriate for every stage in a product’s manufacturing life cycle Aiding this trend have been awareness of the ... more »
    • Power in Numbers for Cancer Biomarkers
    • Kate Marusina
    • It is no longer believed that dysregulation of limited amounts of oncogenes or tumor-suppressor genes causes cancer Cancer cells show aberrant regulation of many other genes directly or indirectly involved in carcinogenesis and tumor progression Therefore, observation of a single ... more »
    • Solving the Antithrombotic Conundrum
    • David J. Mazzo, Ph.D.
    • The multibillion-dollar worldwide market for injectable antithrombotic drugs (including anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents) will continue to grow as minimally invasive surgical interventions to open blocked coronary vessels become increasingly commonplace... more »
