Turning white blood cells into medicinal microrobots with light

Medicinal microrobots could help physicians better treat and prevent diseases. But most of these devices are made with synthetic materials that trigger immune responses in vivo. Now, for the first time, researchers reporting ...

Superselective colloid-surface binding visualized

Rather than one key and one strong lock, biology often uses tens or hundreds of weaker links to bind parts together, such as cell membranes. This allows for selectivity and also reversibility—the binding can also be undone. ...

Visualizing microscopic 3D displacements over large areas

A team of researchers from PSL University, Harvard University and China University of Petroleum, has developed a way to visualize microscopic 3D displacements of moving objects or events over large areas. In their paper published ...

Biophotonic probes for bio-detection and imaging

Sensitive detection and imaging in bio-microenvironment is highly desired in biophotonic and biomedical applications. However, conventional photonic materials inevitably show incompatibility and invasiveness to bio-systems. ...
