  • Researchers zero-in on cholesterol's role in cells

    Scientists have long puzzled over cholesterol. It's biologically necessary; it's observably harmful - and nobody knows what it's doing where it's most abundant in cells: in the cell membrane. Now, for the first time, chemists at the University of Illinois at Chicago have used a path-breaking optical more

  • World's first total-body PET scanner takes a big step forward

    The UC Davis-based EXPLORER consortium, which aims to build a revolutionary total-body PET (positron emission tomography) scanner, has announced the selection of two industry partners to help build the prototype device.
