Cancer Fighting Antibody Created by Duke Researchers

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Jun 10, 2016

Antibodies are essential for keeping the body healthy, as they are produced in the immune system and sent to fight harmful substances. Since they are essential for fighting off unwanted antigens in the body, antibodies are a hot topic that researchers are constantly studying. Recently, a research team from Duke University developed an antibody that specifically targets cancer cells, providing a possible new immunotherapy for cancer. (Image of antibody-antigen complex courtesy of Alejandro Porto via Wikimedia Commons)

Duke University Illuminates the Beauty of Yeast

Posted by David Larsen on Fri, Mar 20, 2015


By combining time-lapse luminescence microscopy with a microfluidic device, researchers at Duke University were able to track the dynamics of cell cycle genes in single yeast with subminute exposure times over many generations. Typically time-lapse fluorescence microscopy of genetically encoded fluorescent proteins is the gold standard for measuring in vivo dynamics of gene expression in single cells.
