A thermometer can be stretched and crumpled by water


Recent outbreaks of the novel coronavirus have emphasized the importance of quarantine and prevention more than ever. When monitoring changes in our body, body temperature is first measured. So, it is very significant to measure the temperature accurately and promptly. With this regard, a ...

Microglia Turned On

Visualizing microglia in brain tissue with a fluorescence turn-on substrate


Part of the immune system in the brain is made up of so-called microglia cells. Korean and Singaporean researchers have now developed a fluorescent probe that specifically labels this type of macrophage. The cells were visualized in cell culture and in the live brains of rodents. As detailed in ...

Bacteria causing infections can be detected more rapidly

A fluorescent molecule for screening Gram-positive bacteria


Two years ago, a group of infants died at the university hospital and it was found to be Gram-negative bacteria that caused their death. The Gram-negative bacteria turn into pink color and Gram-positive bacteria turn into violet color when stained using the Gram stain which is a bacterial ...


Researchers develop a control algorithm for more accurate lab-on-a-chip devices


Prof. Wan Kyun Chung with PhD student Young Jin Heo, MS student Junsu Kang, and postdoctoral researcher Min Jun Kim in the Robotics Laboratory at POSTECH, Korea, have developed a novel control algorithm to resolve critical problems induced from a Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller ...


Team creates a more durable protein hydrogel based on elastic silk-like protein


Prof. Hyung Joon Cha (Dept. of Chemical Engineering) and a team of researchers examined the behavior of sea anemone to create a mechanically durable hydrogel. Since the body length and width of sea anemone varies almost ten-fold by shrinking rapidly and expanding slowly under stimulus, the team ...


Dying Brightly

Fluorescence lights up cells programmed to die


Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, occurs tens of millions of times every day in every human body. Researchers in South Korea have devised an easy method to detect apoptotic cells by fluorescence, as they report in Chemistry—An Asian Journal. Their method makes it easier to detect improper ...


BASF Plant Science, Genomine, Inc. and POSTECH sign license agreement in plant biotechnology

Focus on maximizing yields in crops such as rice and corn


BASF Plant Science, Genomine, the South Korean venture company and POSTECH, the South Korean university, entered a license agreement. Focus is on the discovery of genes that help maximize yields in staple food and feed crops such as rice and corn. This includes genes that increase yield under ...
