3D Liquid-Cell Electron Microscopy Imaging Now Possible

Electron microscopy revealed a world that exists at scales smaller than the wavelength of light. Advancements in this field have allowed scientists to visualize ever more objects and processes, but actually seeing living cells in 3D and within a liquid environment has been impossible. Now, a team of researchers from Penn State University, Virginia (Read more...)

Voltron Technology Lights Up Brain Activity in Real Time

While scientists have a variety of tools on hand to monitor and manipulate living brains, they still lack the ability to observe how large numbers of individual neurons operate in real time. Now, researchers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute have developed a remarkable technology, published in the journal Science, that illuminates neurons just (Read more...)

Smart Bandage Pulls Skin Together to Speed Healing

Wounds on the skin are usually treated with bandages that protect the area and keep it moist, but which don’t actively help to promote healing. Researchers at Harvard and McGill universities have now created a mechanotherapy bandage that actually works to close the wound, keeps it protected from microbes, and speeds up healing much faster [&h (Read more...)
