Red Blood Cell-Hitchhiking for Targeted Drug Delivery

Drug delivery utilizing nanocarriers (NCs) as a targeted approach has been actively pursued; however, even with the use of different affinity moieties such as antibodies to improve targeting and reduce off-target toxicity, NCs are predominately…

DNA Destruction Through Novel and Adaptable Enzymes

Bacteria in mixed populations compete for resources and have several strategies on surviving and dominating other bacterial species. One method employs the injection of lethal effectors into adjacent cells. These effectors can disrupt cell membranes…

Inhibiting Microbial Metabolism of Levodopa to Increase Availability in the CNS

Parkinson’s disease (PD) impacts 10 million people globally, with 60,000 Americans newly diagnosed every year. Levodopa remains the gold standard treatment for PD, despite limitations including side effects and peripheral metabolism. Current…

Reproducible Individual Brain Organoids

The human brain is a highly complex organ comprised of a variety of cell types and that are largely generated during embryonic development. While this process is invariable in vivo, it is unclear if this can be recapitulated outside of the embryo.…

Cyborg organoids with fully integrated nanoelectronics

Researchers from the Liu lab at Harvard have grown organoids with fully integrated sensors that grow with the developing cells, giving them the unique ability to study the early stages of organ development. Organoids are 3D clusters of cells that…

Scalable method for manufacture of thin film photovoltaic devices

Photovoltaic devices based on perovskites hold the potential of thin, light structures and very high efficiencies. However, the instability of perovskites in air leads to very short device lifetimes (on the order of hours), and thus silicone-based…
