Allergic immune responses help fight bacterial infections
Researchers from CeMM Research Center of Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the Medical University of Vienna and Stanford University School of Medicine, have found that a module of the immune system, which is best known for causing allergic reactions, plays a key role i ... more
How to Put Neurons into Cages
Using microscopically fine 3D printing technologies from TU Wien (Vienna) and sound waves used as tweezers at Stanford University (California), tiny networks of neurons have been created.
Microscopically small cages can be produced at TU Wien (Vienna). Their grid openings are only a few mic ... more
New CRISPR-based tool can probe and control several genetic circuits at once
Every cell in our body has a computer-like control system that sends biological signals through thousands of circuits to monitor the cell's needs and regulate its responses.
But when diseases such as cancer arise, these regulatory circuits often go awry, resulting in unnatural signals and r ... more
