This week Dr Nils Kronenberg from the Gatherlab presented the groups novel sensor for measuring cell forces at the meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology / International Forum for Cell Biology. Some 300 cell biologists attended Nils’ presentation.
Malte Gather and Andy Yun at Harvard Medical School / Mass General Hospital have published in Nature Communications how the special molecular structure of fluorescent proteins enables high luminenscence and excellent optical gain in the solid-state form of the protein. See here for the University of St Andrews press release on the matter. See here for the … Read more
This Tuesday the Gatherlab has presented for the first time extensive work on a novel type of sensor capable of measuring the forces exerted by individual cells and their focal adhesions. The work was presented as an invited talk in Symposium D: Materials and Concepts for Biomedical Sensing at the MRS Fall Meeting in Boston.
