Tiny oil droplets help measure mechanical forces produced by living cells that shape tissues and organs; new method could improve diagnosis of cancer, hypertension, and many other diseases
Scientists routinely seek to reprogram bacteria to produce proteins for drugs, biofuels and more, but they have struggled to get those bugs to follow orders.
“You are not just a ball of cells,” says Clifford Tabin, George Jacob and Jacqueline Hazel Leder Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School (HMS).
According to a new report in Nature Communications, a team of engineers at Harvard University has developed a revolutionary coating for glass that is self-cleaning, extremely durable and highly slippery.
New lines of engineered bacteria can tailor-make key precursors of high-octane biofuels that could one day replace gasoline
Slipping bacteria some silver could give old antibiotics new life.
A team of Harvard engineers has made a successful test flight with a tiny robotic insect that is half the size of a paperclip, weighs less than a tenth of a gram, and can flap its wings 120 times per second.
New research from Harvard University helps to explain how waterborne bacteria can colonize rough surfaces—even those that have been designed to resist water.
Tunable material system designed by Harvard team is easily adaptable for diverse applications in fuel transport, textiles, optical systems, and more
Doctors routinely track their patients' hand-eye coordination to monitor any neuromuscular deficits, particularly as patients age or when they are injured -- but the tests they have been using to track this kind of information may be subjective and qualitative.
