Ultrasound solves an important clinical problem in diagnosing arrhythmia

Ultrasound solves an important clinical problem in diagnosing arrhythmia Grantee News thomas.johnson Mon, 03/30/2020 - 09:48 Researchers have used an ultrasound technique they pioneered a decade ago -- electromechanical wave imaging (EWI) -- to accurately localize atrial and ventricular cardiac arrhythmias in adult patients in a double-blinded clinical study. They evaluated the accuracy of EWI … Continue reading Ultrasound solves an important clinical problem in diagnosing arrhythmia

Engineers model mutations causing drug resistance

Engineers model mutations causing drug resistance Grantee News thomas.johnson Wed, 03/25/2020 - 10:22 Whether it is a drug-resistant strain of bacteria, or cancer cells that no longer react to the drugs intended to kill them, diverse mutations make cells resistant to chemicals, and 'second generation' approaches are needed. Now, a team of engineers may have … Continue reading Engineers model mutations causing drug resistance

New technique ‘prints’ cells to create diverse biological environments

New technique 'prints' cells to create diverse biological environments Grantee News thomas.johnson Mon, 03/23/2020 - 11:48 With the help of photolithography and programmable DNA, researchers have created a new technique that can rapidly 'print' two-dimensional arrays of cells and proteins that mimic a wide variety of cellular environments in the body. This technique could help … Continue reading New technique ‘prints’ cells to create diverse biological environments
