May 21, 2015 — Scientists for the first time have precisely measured a protein's natural "knee-jerk" reaction to the breaking of a chemical bond -- a quaking motion that propagated through the ... read more

May 21, 2015 — A new chemical technology uses cancer cells' own protein-degrading machinery to destroy, rather than merely inhibit, cancer proteins. Researchers developed the strategy as a way to develop ... read more

May 21, 2015 — A highly sensitive imaging technique for non-invasive screening of lymph nodes for metastatic cancer has been developed by researchers. The new imaging technique -- so far tested in mice -- offers a ... read more

May 19, 2015 — Researchers have made a new protein detection platform using low-cost plastic and paper substrates. Their work could help reduce the cost and improve the accuracy of infectious disease diagnosis, ... read more

Non-Invasive Tool for Diagnosing Cancer

May 19, 2015 — An ultrasensitive method to detect micro-RNAs, tiny molecules that can indicate the presence of tumors, has been developed by researchers. They are applying the technology toward a non-invasive ... read more
