Isolating live cells after high-throughput, long-term, time-lapse microscopy

Researchers led by Johan Paulsson have engineered a high-throughput microfluidic device for multigenerational culturing, imaging, and tracking of single-cell lineages. The platform is highly customizable and is compatible with many cell types,…

Rapid point-of-care COVID-19 detection assay by RT-LAMP

The current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has created an urgent need for rapid point-of-care diagnostic tools. Many of these tests are being developed and are achieving FDA approval. In the face of a sweeping pandemic, assays should require no specialized…

Machine learning to accelerate diagnostics and therapeutics for COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic demands a rapid response of science, diagnostics, and therapeutics. Debora Marks’ lab at Harvard Medical School aims to accelerate those efforts using predictive models of the SARS-CoV2-19 sequences and 3D structures. The lab’s…

Universal Early Cancer Diagnostic

DescriptionThe methylation of DNA is an important epigenetic modification that regulates gene expression. A variety of disease states, cancer in particular, are thought to originate from defects in this process leading to changes in the DNA…

Hyperpolarized contrast agents for MRI with long relaxation times

When the nuclear orientation of a material is hyperpolarized by techniques such as dynamic nuclear polarization, these materials can function as extremely effective contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In most cases, however, the…

Liquid biopsy-based predictive platform for early cancer detection and drug discovery

Recognition and management of individuals susceptible to disease are critical for patient care. However, identification of these patients is very challenging, especially in oncology. Dr. Peter Park and his group at the Department of Biomedical…

Highly specific chemical detection using NMR at low magnetic fields

NMR often does not have sufficient resolution to distinguish between chemicals with related or similar structures in the presence of a large background, which leads to poor chemical specificity. The NMR spectra of complex chemical mixtures may…

Photostick: Physical isolation of single cells from tissue, for further propagation and single cell sequencing and omics

Photostick enables the physical selection of single cells from large populations in diverse environments. The novel process entails photochemical immobilization of live cells with patterned illumination, followed by removal of unwanted cells with…
