It is known that cancer cells don’t live on glass slides, yet the vast majority of images related to cancer biology come from the cells being photographed on flat, two-dimensional … Continue Reading New 3D- imaging provides unprecedented views of cancer in it’s natural environment.
Over the past century, the most reliable method of diagnosing diseases has been the microscopic visualization of thinly sectioned tissues mounted on glass slides. This practice of histopathology is universally … Continue Reading Pen-sized microscope which identifies cancer cells in the operating room, out of animal studies.
A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers at the University of Colorado have created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain. The researchers published details of … Continue Reading Researchers develop microscope allowing deep brain exploration.
Cells have finger-like projections that they use to feel their surroundings. They can detect the chemical environment and they can ‘feel’ their physical surroundings using ultrasensitive sensors. New research from … Continue Reading New mechanism of cell movement identified and imaged for the first time.
By blocking a widespread enzyme, Centenary Institute amd Sydney Medical School researchers have shown they can slow down the movement of cells and potentially stop tumours from spreading and growing. … Continue Reading Researchers identify and observe enzyme slowing down living cancer cells.
