Scientists Discover Target for Stroke Therapy in Blood-Brain Barrier

The blood–brain barrier prevents immune cells from circulating freely in the brain, and the breakdown of its function is a major cause of post-stroke inflammation....

Wearable Microfluidic Sensor to Measure Lactate Concentration in Real Time

Lactate, a compound present in sweat, is an important biomarker to quantify during exercise. However, available wearable sensors can cause skin irritation, which calls...

Understanding How Plants Sense Herbivore Attack

Plants are known to possess solid immune response mechanisms. One such response is “sensing” attack by herbivorous animals. In a new review article, Prof....

Scientists Reveal Unique Shifting Surface Structure in Materials Resembling Quasicrystals

Since their discovery, quasicrystals have been researched extensively by materials scientists around the world. Due to their rarity, scientists have often resorted to studying...

Scientists Show How Near-Infrared Imaging and Machine Learning Can Identify Hidden...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs)—typically found in the stomach and the small intestines—require demanding techniques that are very time-consuming and prolong the diagnosis. Now, to...

TUS Scientists Reveal How a Cancer Drug Carrier’s Structure Can Help...

Porphyrins are interesting drug delivery vehicles that can specifically accumulate in cancer cells. However, how the structure of the drug-conjugated porphyrin affects its ability...

TUS Researchers Modify Stem Cells to Deliver Drugs Specifically to Tumor...
