Detecting Rare Cancer Cells with Sound Waves
A team of engineers from MIT, Penn State University, and Carnegie Mellon University is developing a novel way to isolate rare circulating tumor cells using sound waves to separate them from blood cells.
3D Heart Simulation
Researchers from the University of Tokyo built a 3D model of the human heart to help predict whether new drugs will cause irregular heartbeats.
DNA: Past to Present
In celebration of DNA Day on April 25, GEN presents this video timeline spanning 150 years of the history of DNA.
Exploring the PI3K/AKT/mTOR Pathway
Novartis Oncology is investigating the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway to understand and treat advanced breast cancer.
Improving Brain Plasticity
The Shatz Lab at Stanford developed a decoy drug that allowed mice to form new connections as adults, leading to findings that could eventually help people recover from stroke, forms of blindness and Alzheimer's disease.
Parkinson's Diagnosis by Typing on a Keyboard
MIT researchers show how analyzing people's keystrokes as they type can reveal information about the state of their motor function.
