Alex Shalek explains the science behind his striking image, "Cellular Injections: Using Nanowires to Investigate the Causes of Leukemia." Alex's image was selected as a winner of the 2013 Koch Institute Image Awards.
Eric Williams explains the story behind his beautiful image, "On the Scent: Investigating an Anti-Aging Gene Inside the Nose." Eric's image was selected as a winner of the 2013 Koch Institute Image Awards.
Professor John Essigmann describes how oxidation reactions in our bodies are both essential for life and responsible for cell damage that can potentially lead to cancer.
Samuel Thompson discusses his research on designing new tools to track the movement of proteins within cells.
Researchers from MIT have now found a safe and efficient way to get large molecules through the cell membrane, by squeezing the cells through a narrow constriction that opens up tiny, temporary holes in the membrane.
Researchers have developed a way to monitor how brain cells coordinate with each other to control specific behaviors, such as initiating movement or detecting an odor.
Researchers at Georgia Tech and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT have developed a way to automate the process of finding and recording information from neurons in the living brain. The researchers have shown that a robotic arm guided by a cell-detecting ...
MIT researchers answer a longstanding question in biology: How do cells know when to progress through the cell cycle?
Teachers: Rabih Talhouk, PhD and Elia El-Habre, MSc. of the American University of Beirut in LebanonSummary: How is it that all cells in our body have the same genes, yet cells in different tissues express different genes? A basic notion in biology that most high ...
