Research Paper: Argonne National Laboratory
Research at the Biophysics Collaborative Access Team (Bio-CAT) synchrotron x-ray facility at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne provides another, important step toward a full explanation of stretch activation, which also plays an important role in mammalian cardiac expansion and contraction.
The use of solar energy has long been a major goal to provide humans with “free” electricity. This is a very appealing aspiration because on a sunny day the sun gives Earth more energy than we can use. Solar energy has the potential to provide cheap green electricity and eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels.
Wearable robots are nothing new to science fiction and comic book heroes, and have been gaining popularity in the real world as a means to extend human physical capabilities.
A new possible application of robotic exoskeletons has now come to light, thanks to a recent study from the University of Chicago – these devices may hold the key for patients hoping to regain the use of a paralyzed limb.

Another embryonic link to cancer
Metastatic melanoma is a highly aggressive skin cancer associated with poor clinical outcome. One key feature is the expression of a cellular type resembling embryonic stem cells in its molecular profile. Both stem cells and aggressive melanoma cells participate in bidirectional communication with the microenvironment, which can profoundly influence cell behavior.
