PHG Foundation
Luís Bastos's insight:

Billions of yen will go to projects in computing, space research, energy and nanotechnology, but the largest single allocation will be for stem cell research, with a focus on work involving clinical applications of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells – cells derived from adult tissue that are ‘reprogrammed’ into new cell types. The total investment package is just over 10 trillion yen, or approximately £70 billion, around 10% of which will go to scientific research.

Research this summer out of Rice University showed that newly developednanoparticles could be an effective emergency treatment for traumatic brain injuries.

Now researchers at Duke University have come up with an ultra-pure carbon nanotube—dubbed “few-walled carbon nanotubes” (a reference to the single-walled and multi-walled varieties)—that canregulate excessive levels of chloride in nerve cells.

Creating Nanostructures with Embedded Live Cells Using Laser Technology

Creating Nanostructures with Embedded Live Cells Using Laser Technology | Nano in Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering | Scoop.it
Using Laser Technology, Aleksandr Ovsianikov from the Vienna University of Technology wants to create microstructures with embedded living cells. This project will be funded by an ERC Starting Grant.
Luís Bastos's insight:

The behavior of cells strongly depends on their environment. If they are to be researched and manipulated, it is crucial to embed them in suitable surroundings. Aleksandr Ovsianikov is developing a laser system, which allows living cells to be incorporated into intricate taylor-made structures, similar to biological tissue, in which cells are surrounded by the extracellular matrix. This technology is particularly important for artificially growing biotissue, for finding new drugs or for stem cell research.
