Heterogeneous elastic response of human lung microvascular endothelial cells to barrier modulating stimuli – Corrected Proof

Abstract: In this study we employ atomic force microscopy, supported by finite element analysis and fluorescence microscopy, to characterize the elastic properties accompanying cytoskeletal structural rearrangements of lung microvascular endothelial cells in response to barrier altering stimuli. Statistical analysis of elasticity data obtained… Continue reading

NTU scientist develops a multi-purpose wonder material to tackle environmental challenges

Science fiction? Hardly, and there’s more – It can also desalinate water, be used as flexible water filtration membranes, help recover energy from desalination waste brine, be made into flexible solar cells and can also double the lifespan of lithium ion batteries. With its superior bacteria-killing capabilities, it can also be used to develop a… Continue reading

Primera vacuna contra la cistitis: una iniciativa público-privada

nanocom

La cistitis recurrente es una infección del tracto urinario con gran prevalencia y de especial incidencia entre las mujeres. Este proyecto conjunto de las Universidades de Vigo y de Santiago, la spin-off Nanoimmunotech y las empresas CZ Veterinaria-Biofabri y Nanogap tiene como objetivo el desarrollo de la primera vacuna a nivel mundial para esta enfermedad. La iniciativa cuenta con tres millones de euros y el apoyo del programa Feder-Innterconecta del CDTI.
