Splitting to differentiate

2 November 2020

Abscission couples cell division to embryonic stem cell fate In the early embryo, cells change fate from a pluripotent state where they have the potential to become any cell type, towards more and more specialised cell types. One such fate transition is exit from naive pluripotency, when cells become receptive to...

Photoacoustics resolves species-specific differences in hemoglobin concentration and oxygenation

30 September 2020

Photoacoustics resolves species-specific differences in hemoglobin concentration and oxygenation Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) is an emerging biomedical imaging technology based on the conversion of light into ultrasound. It enables the non-invasive detection of the red blood cell protein haemoglobin (HB) and blood...
