The mechanical basis of mitosis ( cell division ) is an important component in cell biology , but has only been understood in fragments so far. But scientists at the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden; Germany
Medical School—presented during the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) annual meeting (December 3–7, 2011)—demonstrated ..... application of various technologies for specific areas of cell biology . For instance, in separate sessions, Asylum Research and
Career Award to Weill Cornell Medical College researcher Dr. Scott Blanchard in recognition of his groundbreaking work in cell biology . The award totals more than $806,000 spread over five years. Blanchard is perhaps best known for advancing fluorescence
cytometry, which promises to advance cell biology in important ways. Fluorescence labels have advanced cell biology and cytometry by enabling the study ..... huge boon to immunologists and other cell biology researchers currently forced to work with a limited number
other popular fluorescent probes with broad application in cell biology have UV absorption, they are also applicable to flow cytometry ..... ANDERS TENGHOLM is researcher at Department of Medical Cell Biology , Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden, www.uu.se
Leading-edge heart disease research requires the capabilities of next-generation optical instrumentation. Behind the scenes, three-axis micromanipulators let researchers pick up single cells and perform molecular-level force and motion measurements.
Light microscopy systems for measuring cell motility can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. But a PhD student at Brunel University London's College of Health and Life Sciences built his own inverted microscope for an estimated $250 by adapting three low-cost USB microscopes he purchased online.
Optical sectioning with light-sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is fast and keeps cells and specimens safe.
A newly developed class of photo-switchable molecules that enable remote, noninvasive control of protein-protein interactions will serve as a prototype to develop photo-switchable drugs with side effects limited by location and time.
By engineering human embryonic kidney (HEK) cells to produce green fluorescent protein (GFP), and by placing one such cell between two mirrors to make an optical cavity with a 20 µm diameter, two Boston-based scientists have succeeded in creating the first "bio laser."
