Every chemist’s dream – to snap an atomic-scale picture of a chemical before and after it reacts – has now come true, thanks to a new technique developed by chemists and physicists at the University of California, Berkeley. Using a state-of-the-art atomic force microscope, the scientists have taken the first atom-by-atom pictures, including images of the chemical bonds between atoms, clearly depicting how a molecule’s structure changed during a reaction. Until now, scientists have only been able to infer this type of information from spectroscopic analysis.
Innovation isn't about making new products, Cook said at the D: All Things Digital Conference. You only need fresh ideas.Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage at the D: All Things Digital Conference Tuesday night, answering questions on the company's cool factor and whether Apple has any plans for wearable tech.
Ajan Reginald's insight:
Tim Cook is an expert. However a definition of innovation is invention + commercialisation.
Fatigue and Infection Could Be Due to Depression, Medicine Side Effects or More Valley News Dear Dr. Roach: I'm 61. Nearly a year ago, I had chest pain that brought me to the emergency room, and I was diagnosed with blockages in my coronary arteries.
Bioelectronics is the field of developing medicines that use electrical impulses to modulate the body's neural circuits as an alternative to drug-based interventions. How far away are we from having these very targeted "electroceuticals"?
Why innovation thrives in cities MIT News Why innovation thrives in cities. Double a city's population and its economic productivity goes up 130 percent. MIT researchers think they know why. Larry Hardesty, MIT News Office.
Researchers are designing tiny particles to act as medicine.
The particles are coated with waterlike molecules that allow them to travel inside the body without being detected by the immune system, Farokhzad said. Their surfaces contain molecules that provide them with a "GPS" to seek out abnormal cancer cells.
Once they find a cancer cell, the particles stick, and like a Trojan horse, the cancer cells take them inside where they can release medicine that's toxic to the cell, Farokhzad said. [Watch the World Science Festival Live.]
In a study published last year in Science Translational Medicine, Farokhzad and colleagues showed that, in people, the nanoparticles delivered a much higher dose of medicine to cancer cells than to other cells in the body. Follow-up studies will test the effectiveness of the drug at treating tumors.
A common misconception today is that innovators are innately creative people. Specifically, many people think that innovators are born with intuitive skills and views of the world that differsfrom the rest of the population.
The current status of phage therapy approaches is reviewed and possible hurdles to a practical medical application of bacteriophages in Western countries are identified as discussed at a recent EMBO meeting on “Viruses of Microbes” in Brussels. In view of the growing antibiotic resistance crisis, a coordinated effort by the public health sector is needed to evaluate the potential of phage therapy as an adjunct to antibiotics.
