SLAS2016 Participants to Experience Night at the USS Midway Museum
SLAS    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Continuing its tradition of presenting a memorable final evening fete to commemorate the annual gathering of the SLAS global community, SLAS2016 will hold its Tuesday Night Celebration aboard one of America's longest-serving aircraft carriers — the 20 stories high, 1,000 ft. long, 64,000 ton, 212,000 horsepower USS Midway. SLAS will have full access to all exhibits, including the 4-acre flight deck, flight control and bridge.

The ship is docked in Navy Pier near the San Diego Convention Center. Photo courtesy of USS Midway Museum.


SLAS Presentations & Publications: So Much More than Professional Show & Tell
SLAS     Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"Sharing your research achievements as podium and poster presentations at SLAS conferences and as published manuscripts in SLAS journals delivers value to you that extends well beyond just another notch on your CV," says SLAS President Dean Ho in his latest From the SLAS President column in the SLAS Electronic Laboratory Neighborhood e-zine. "Actively engaging in the life sciences R&D community by publishing or presenting your research through SLAS can open big doors that can elevate your professional profile, lead to significant advancements in your research, introduce you to new dimensions of opportunity and perhaps even launch you into an entirely new orbit."

Learn how in the e-zine.

Human Genome Sequenced Without Cloning Steps
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Completion of the human genome sequence in 2003 was a milestone in the biological sciences that can be compared to few other endeavors. However, the project wasn’t without its pitfalls and limitations. In particular, the final assembled sequence, often referred to as the reference genome, is composed of a haploid sequence from its human donor. Since human genomes are diploid, receiving one set of chromosomes from maternal DNA and the other set of paternal DNA, there are many advantages to sequencing the genome in its entirety, simultaneously.

A Gel That Can Make Drugs Last Longer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology of A*STAR have developed a drug-delivering hydrogel to treat chronic diseases such as hepatitis C, a liver disease that kills around 500,000 people worldwide every year. "The new gel from IBN prevents premature drug release in the body. This allows for long-term drug delivery and reduces the side effects from frequent drug administration," said IBN Executive Director Professor Jackie Y. Ying. More

Companion Diagnostics And Drugs Follow New Regulatory Path
Chemical & Engineering News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last summer, the Food & Drug Administration published its final guidance on the development and approval path for companion diagnostics. These in vitro tests and devices put personalized medicine into practice by providing, FDA says, the "information essential for the safe and effective use of a corresponding drug." In clinical trials and medical care, the diagnostics will help identify patients most likely to benefit from a particular therapy. More

Researchers Uncover Epigenetic Switches that Turn Stem Cells into Blood Vessel Cells
Bioscience Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a molecular mechanism that directs embryonic stem cells to mature into endothelial cells — the specialized cells that form blood vessels. Understanding the processes initiated by this mechanism could help scientists more efficiently convert stem cells into endothelial cells for use in tissue repair, or for engineering blood vessels to bypass blockages in the heart.

Expanded Porphyrin-Anion Supramolecular Assemblies: Environmentally Responsive Sensors for Organic Solvents and Anions
Journal of the American Chemical Society    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Porphyrins have been used frequently to construct supramolecular assemblies. In contrast, noncovalent ensembles derived from expanded porphyrins, larger congeners of naturally occurring tetrapyrrole macrocycles, are all but unknown. Here we report a series of expanded porphyrin-anion supramolecular assemblies. These systems display unique environmentally responsive behavior. More

Giving Atoms Their Marching Orders
Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Building self-assembled "molecular straws" from bis-urea macrocycles, a research team has developed a new nanotube system that can be used to directly compare single-file diffusion dynamics with Fickian diffusion dynamics. The team uses hyperpolarized xenon-129 NMR to study gas transport dynamics in two highly homogeneous nanotubes, one with a narrow-bore, hollow interior that can accommodate xenon gas atoms only in single file.

New Drug Squashes Cancer's Last-Ditch Efforts to Survive
Lab Manager    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As a tumor grows, its cancerous cells ramp up an energy-harvesting process to support its hasty development. This process, called autophagy, is normally used by a cell to recycle damaged organelles and proteins, but is also co-opted by cancer cells to meet their increased energy and metabolic demands. Salk Institute and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute scientists have developed a drug that prevents this process from starting in cancer cells. More

Sorting Cells Through Levitation
Science Mag    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What looks like a row of drifting gumdrops could hold a wealth of information for both clinical researchers and bench scientists. A team of bioengineers and geneticists has designed a device that can suspend a single living cell between magnets and measure its density based on how high it floats. Such measurements could be used to sort different types of cells — to distinguish cancerous cells from healthy ones, for example — or to measure how cells change when exposed to drugs. More
