A flexible wide-field endoscope utilising blue excitation light provides label-free contrast of tissue based on fluorescence lifetime imaging of tissue autofluorescence. Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) of tissue autofluorescence has been shown to provide labelfree contrast between different types and states of tissue. Clinical FLIM can combine lifetime contrast with morphological information to provide a direct […]
A simple method for 3D patterning of cell co-cultures has been developed based on capillary forces in a nanostructured microchannel.
Dr. Mehdi Jorfi and Prof. E. Johan Foster review the applications of nanocellulose in various biomedical applications.
A group at the University of Adelaide have developed an intracellular GSH-responsive drug delivery system with enhanced cellular uptake capability.
New research describes the use of polymers that can bind siRNAs into nanoscale assemblies that do not disassemble until they are irradiated with UV light.
Researchers have developed a hydrogel system containing a spatial gradient of siRNA and studied its effects on encapsulated cells.
UC Berkeley researchers have published an overview of the use of mammalian elastin, collagen, insect-derived silk and resilin in biomaterials design.
Paolo Netti and co-workers have designed and characterized model tumor activated polystyrene nanoparticles (TAP-NPs) that release cytotoxic drugs.
Researchers develop a nanothin anti-inflammatory polymer material capable of decreasing immune responses involved in insulin-cell transplantation rejection.
Dr Loh Xian Jun discusses his review article on potential clinical applications for biodegrable thermogelling polymers.
