Nanotech "Future Phone" | Stem Cells Cure Diabetes in Mice
This week, we'll talk about art as an inspiration for nanotechnology, and learn how scientists are using stem cells to cure diabetes in mice.
QSTORM: Looking Inside Nerve Cells
Our nerve cells contain thread-like molecular-scale transport systems that ferry essential materials from cell bodies to the tips of their axons and back. Diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's seem to be associated with traffic jams on these sub-cellular highways. Hear how Carnegie Mellon researcher Ge Yang and the QSTORM biological imaging team are working to achieve super-resolution views of traffic flow beyond the traditional limits of microscopy.
