Developing wet circuits for biology research

You don't have to be an engineer to know that water and electronics don't mix. But if you want to use a sensing circuit to study small-scale features in a community of cells, the electronics must find a way to accommodate ...

How the body's delivery system could lead to targeted therapeutics

In a post-pandemic world, we are used to sending and receiving parcels, getting groceries and items delivered to our door, sending messages and items to loved ones we cannot see. We've become accustomed to sending and receiving ...

Uncovering a promising use case for exosomes

Extracellular vesicles—or exosomes, as they are more commonly known—continue to be a curious research focus for the scientific community. Once assumed to be waste materials secreted by cells, exosomes have recently been ...

Getting the most therapeutic potential out of cells

A simple change in the way donor cells are processed can maximize a single cell's production of extracellular vesicles, which are small nanoparticles naturally secreted by cells, according to new research from researchers ...

Regulators for extracellular vesicle production

Biological vesicles are nano-sized containers that transport proteins and other substances within or between cells. Most cells release so-called extracellular vesicles (EVs), which play important roles in cell-to-cell communication. ...
