Long-term goals hold promise for treatment of blood disorders and bone marrow regeneration

Researchers at Houston Methodist used computer modeling to find an existing investigational drug compound for leukemia patients to treat triple negative breast cancer once it spreads to the brain
Recent discovery holds promise for developing a new class of drugs that is radically different from the steroids currently used to treat asthma
Nanomedicine researchers find new use for 70-year-old drug
This single, self-contained medical device will be effective, for example, in quickly detecting liver toxicity
Scientists at the Houston Methodist Research Institute have figured out how to pick up and transfer single cells using a pipette–a common laboratory tool that's been tweaked slightly. They describe this engineering feat and preliminary test results in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
With a nod to 3rd century Chinese woodblock printing and children's rubber stamp toys, researchers in Houston have developed a way to print living cells onto any surface, in virtually any shape. Unlike recent, similar work using inkjet printing approaches, almost all cells survive the process, scientists report in this week's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
