Wyss Institute materials scientists have bioprinted a tubular 3D renal architecture that recapitulates functions of the kidney
When combined with the inability to standardize and transfer analytical methods between labs, the conventional methods for large molecule analysis become inefficient.
Inexpensive method could slow spread of outbreak, future pandemic diseases
A tunable protein piston that breaks membranes to release encapsulated cargo
New technique allows tracking of gene expression over generations of cells as they specialize.
Students and professors develop a novel way to help those with visual impairment
For years, researchers have worked to develop novel molecules for therapeutic or research purposes, and have relied on directed evolution as a powerful technique for generating molecules that exhibit the properties they want.
For more than half a century scientists have looked on the DNA molecule as life's blueprint. Now biological engineers are beginning to see the molecule not as a static plan, but more like a snippet of life's computer code that they can program.
