Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...ety. The superbowl molecule belongs to a class of artificial bowl-shaped molecules that were first developed in the 1980s to mimic naturally occurring enzymes, which facilitate molecular synthesis and transport within the body. Over the years, these bowl-shaped molecules have been extensively studied and refin...

Gene therapyis a promising approach to the treatment of genetic disorders,debilitating neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and endocrinedisorders such as diabetes. This technology m...

U-M scientist to talk about tissue engineering at AAAS

...engineering refers to growing human tissue through artificial means. Typically it involves harvesting a small sample of cells, treating them in the lab, then reintroducing the cells into a damaged area, like a jaw bone damaged too badly to simply heal on its own. A tiny scaffold helps direct the engineered cel...
