With a list of characteristics and applications long enough to make most bioengineers take notice, ultrashort peptide hydrogels are fast becoming the toast of biomedicine. Here, a team from Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology tell us about their work on these little miracles…
Stephen Hawking and other high profile scientists have recently issuing stark warnings over the threat posed to humanity by advanced artificial intelligence. But aside from being a source of existential angst, the development of AI technology can give us deep insights into our own on-board…
Integrated correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) offers the possibility to study the same area on a sample using both fluorescence and electron microscopy. One of the challenges associated with integrated CLEM (iCLEM) is the preparation of samples suitable for both FM and EM.
What was the star of Bethlehem? A quiet debate has been bubbling away for decades between astronomers and philosophers alike. Could some real cosmic event have led three wise men on a journey to find a new King?
Mike Morris discusses the ‘iKnife’ – a new concept that potentially differentiates tissue samples in real-time
Take a look around your laboratory, there may be a wealth of instrumentation and equipment sitting unused. Ben Potenza introduces us to the concept of proactive asset management for idle equipment, and answers common questions about how this can realise the best possible return on investment
