gut CD4 T cells can switch to CD8 cytotoxic. Nat Immunol 20 january 2013

gut CD4 T cells can switch to CD8 cytotoxic. Nat Immunol 20 january 2013 | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it

CD4+ and CD8+ T cells are considered distinct functional lymphocyte subsets. Cheroutre and Mucida and their colleagues show that mature gut-associated CD4+ T cells lose ThPOK expression and reactivate CD8 cytolytic effector programs.

Major step toward an Alzheimer's vaccine

Major step toward an Alzheimer's vaccine | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
Medical researchers have discovered a way to stimulate the brain's natural defense mechanisms in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

A team of researchers from Université Laval, CHU de Québec, and pharmaceutical firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has discovered a way to stimulate the brain's natural defense mechanisms in people with Alzheimer's disease. This major breakthrough, details of which are presented January 15 in an early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), opens the door to the development of a treatment for Alzheimer's disease and a vaccine to prevent the illness.

McGraw-Hill reveals the SmartBook: an 'adaptive' e-book for students

McGraw-Hill is taking on the one-size-fits-all approach to textbooks with its freshly unveiled SmartBook: an e-book that is claimed to adapt to student\'s
Alfredo Corell's insight:

They also are preparing LearnSmart Labs saying: LearnSmart Labs offers the closest thing available to an actual physical laboratory experience, enabling students to put the concepts they have learned in class to the virtual test without requiring access to a brick-and-mortar lab.

 

There are several impresive Virtual Labs on the web... in neither of them a student could really do a pipetting or a flow cytometry... I'm not sure for some study areas that the so called "brick-and-mortar lab" could be replaced by a Virtual Lab
