Growing back the lymph system

A team including University of Georgia researchers has for the first time documented the regrowth of surgically removed pathways in the lymphatic system, a network of vessels designed to pump away inflammatory fluids and ...

World's Most Precise Microscope Headed For UVic

A new microscope that views the subatomic universe -- the first of its kind in the world -- is being built for the University of Victoria, Canada, in collaboration with Hitachi High-Technologies.

Sticky electrons: When repulsion turns into attraction

Materials can assume completely different properties depending on temperature, pressure, electrical voltage or other physical quantities. In theoretical solid-state physics, state-of-the-art computer models are used to understand ...

Non-invasive imaging method spots cancer at the molecular level

Researchers for the first time have combined a powerful microscopy technique with automated image analysis algorithms to distinguish between healthy and metastatic cancerous tissue without relying on invasive biopsies or ...

Research helps bacteria-powered microrobots plot a course

The problem with having a microscopic robot propelled by a horde of tail-flailing bacteria is you never know where it's going to end up. The tiny, bio-robots, which amount to a chip coated with a "carpet" of flagellated bacteria, ...
