Tracking radiation treatment in real time promises safer, more effective cancer therapy

Xueding Wang | Via University of Michigan | January 3, 2023

Radiation, used to treat half of all cancer patients, can be measured during treatment for the first time with precise 3D imaging developed at the University of Michigan. By capturing and amplifying tiny sound waves created when X-rays heat tissues in the body, medical professionals can map the radiation dose within the body, giving them […]

Self-assembling proteins can store cellular “memories”

Edward Boyden | Via MIT | January 2, 2023

As cells perform their everyday functions, they turn on a variety of genes and cellular pathways. MIT engineers have now coaxed cells to inscribe the history of these events in a long protein chain that can be imaged using a light microscope. Cells programmed to produce these chains continuously add building blocks that encode particular […]
