With this award, Stanford has received a total of around $297 million from CIRM.
Thermo Fisher Scientific unveiled a new high performance liquid chromatography system designed from the ground up to provide new levels of performance, productivity and usability when used as a standalone system or with the latest mass spectrometers.
Brown fat tissue, the body’s “good fat,” communicates with the brain through sensory nerves, possibly sharing information that is important for fighting human obesity, such as how much fat we have and how much fat we’ve lost.
HIV can establish itself in the brain as soon as four months after initial infection.
Rainin TerraRacks by Mettler Toledo are more than 50% lighter than conventional racks, yet don't compromise on strength and are completely recyclable.
CRAIC Technologies, a maker of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis solutions, is proud to announce the addition of circular polarization spectroscopy capabilities to CRAIC microspectrophotometers.
Beckman Coulter Genomics Introduces a Scalable RNA-Seq Service Line for Processing Intact and Degraded RNA Samples Expanded RNA sequencing options also captures stranded and long noncoding-RNA information.
AMSBIO has introduced a unique High Throughput PARP in vivo Pharmacodynamic Assay that can be used to monitor the efficacy of poly-ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors on PAR formation in vivo; and to measure drug action on PARP in both in vivo and in vitro settings.
Researchers have harnessed a technique known as CRISPR-Cas9 editing in an important and understudied species: the mosquito, Aedes aegypti, which infects hundreds of millions of people annually with the deadly diseases chikungunya, yellow fever, and dengue fever.
A team of researchers has validated the first standardized protocol for measuring one of the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
The report studied more than 3,500 known plant species and determined that 22 percent are considered rare, in decline, endangered or possibly extinct.
Mystaire Misonix offers MY-PCR Prep workstations. MY-PCR Prep provides the molecular biology laboratory technician with a “personal cleanroom” for use in the amplification of DNA and RNA. Between amplifications, My-PCR Prep can be irritated with shortwave UV energy to denature potential contaminates and eliminate their ability to be amplified.
Nobody likes getting the flu, but for some people, fluids and rest aren’t enough. A small number of children who catch the influenza virus fall so ill they end up in the hospital — perhaps needing ventilators to breathe — even while their family and friends recover easily. New research helps explain why: a rare genetic mutation.
Two particularly hungry, exotic termite species apparently have found love halfway around the world and, as with so many other Florida hook-ups, the results are disturbing.
Nearly 50 years after the “war on cancer” was declared in the United States, precision medicine presages an era of increased understanding of the molecular basis of cancer and of the ability to design treatments tailored to a patient’s own genetic profile, a panel of experts said.
An experimental therapy developed by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University cut in half the time it takes to heal wounds compared to no treatment at all.
