Platelets, the tiny cell fragments whose job it is to stop bleeding, are very simple. They don’t have a cell nucleus. But they can “feel” the physical environment around them, researchers at Emory University and Georgia Tech have discovered.
Scientific research isn’t easy. It’s not supposed to be.
A BME professor recently discovered how to use tiny glowing particles to detect malignant cancer cells. And he's turning his groundbreaking cancer-detection technology into a commercial venture.
Two things you rarely see in the same sentence are “cheerleader” and “research scientist.” But right now, María Díaz Ortiz is equally comfortable being both of those things, balancing these two demanding roles at the Georgia Institute of Technology with the grace of a gymnast, which would only ma
A simple point-of-care testing device for anemia could provide more rapid diagnosis of the common blood disorder and allow inexpensive at-home self-monitoring of persons with chronic forms of the disease.
A new class of synthetic platelet-like particles could augment natural blood clotting for the emergency treatment of traumatic injuries – and potentially offer doctors a new option for curbing surgical bleeding and addressing certain blood clotting disorders without the need for transfusions of n
