NSH featured session: The Pixels are coming, the Pixels are coming! — The Digital Pathology Revolution Has Begun
It is time for Histotechnologists to engage and arm themselves with information required to become part of the Digital Pathology Revolution? Digital Pathology has made significant advances in research, education and quality assurance in healthcare and is rapidly becoming the hot topic in Anatomic Pathology. There are many issues that will directly affect the Histology Lab workflow, connectivity, technology and the partnership between the Histotechnologist and Pathologist. Understanding current state of the technology, how quality and patient outcomes will be improved and implementation needs, are a must for today's Histotechnologist. This workshop, a collaboration between NSH and The Digital Pathology Association, will cover the basics of digital pathology, its effects on the Histology Laboratory, technologists and pathologists and why Histotechnologists must become involved now.

In addition to today's featured workshop, this year's annual Symposium/Convention will feature a great lineup of Digital Pathology Workshops. Learn more.

Stem cells rebuild a beating heart in mice: Are personalized transplants for heart disease on the way?
Medical Daily
VideoBriefReprogrammed stem cells from humans can rebuild a beating mouse heart in less than three weeks, according to a new report in the journal Nature Communications. The results could provide clues into how to build personalized transplants for use with heart disease.

Imaging provides new insights in cellular biology
R&D Magazine
Cell biologists need high-resolution 3-D imaging to understand the structure-function relationships of organelles and other structures in cells, and the connectivity and organization of cells in tissues. Many of these structures are too small to be seen clearly in a light microscope and require the higher resolving power of an electron microscope. Scanning electron microscopes are becoming increasingly popular for 3-D studies in neurobiology due to new physical slicing techniques.

Cooking cancer cells with the help of a nanodiamond thermometer
The Guardian
Cells don't have tongues. They don't have armpits and they don't have ears. This all makes it quite difficult to measure their temperature. Thermometers are a critical tool for much scientific research and medicine — but their use at the smallest scales has so far been limited. Inside our body's cells, for example, where temperature fluctuations are minuscule compared with the changes that we might notice, something else is needed.

Cancer: Unraveling a mechanism behind cellular proliferation
R&D Magazine
Oncologists have STAT3 in their sights. This protein, which plays a role in cell division, is at the heart of a complex series of reactions within the cell. In many cancers, it is overactive — this generally is a negative element in terms of survival, because cells have a marked tendency to proliferate. EPFL scientists have unraveled the chain of events that trigger or inhibit the activity of the protein in healthy cells. Their discovery, published in the journal Molecular Cell, could lead to the identification of new therapeutic targets.

Chronicling cancer experience online can reduce depressive symptoms in breast cancer patients
Medical Xpress
Adults increasingly are conveying their personal experiences with serious disease online, but do such chronicles help the authors or their audience? In the first known study of its kind, UCLA researchers discovered that creating a personal website to chronicle the cancer experience and communicate with one's social network can reduce depressive symptoms, increase positive mood and enhance appreciation for life among women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Looking for a cure with stem cells
The Hindu
From a chief scientific officer to a lab assistant, opportunities are many for medical and nonmedical students. There is a prevalent misconception that only medical professionals can become a stem cell therapist. In fact, stem cells cover a lot of ground, from molecular biology and biotechnology to cell transplantation and therapy. It means that people can come into stem cell biology from more or less any field. Candidates skilled in imaging are also eligible to become stem cells researchers or therapists.
