    • Cell Signaling a Focus at ASCB
    • Vicki Glaser
    • Cell-signaling research encompasses a range of cellular mechanisms and activities, including how cells communicate with each other, how they respond to external stimuli—activators, inhibitors, or foreign entities—and how signals are transferred and received within an individual cell, including the translocation ... more »
    • Exploiting Multi-Methodological Synergies
    • Kathy Liszewski
    • The rapidly expanding field of microarrays has begun harnessing the power of other cutting-edge technologies such as next-generation sequencing, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), and systems biology Merging the best of each area is fueling new growth especially in the ... more »
    • Innovating Protein-Expression Systems
    • K. John Morrow Jr.
    • There has been a maturation of the bioprocessing industry as companies have moved away from a focus on anticancer biologics toward a more diversified portfolio of pharmacological agents With this diversity of disease targets comes a need for expression technologies ... more »
    • Making Strides in the Biodetection Arena
    • Gail Dutton
    • A new approach to high-throughput screening has been developed by microPEP Rather than imprint reagents onto microarrays, microPEP’s approach injection-molds microwell arrays to be used with microbeads These microarrays contain 40 million locations that are 3 µm in diameter and ... more »
    • New Treatments for Sleep Apnea Sufferers
    • Mark Varney
    • Approximately one in ten women and one in four men exhibit signs of sleep-disordered breathing, an umbrella term for a set of conditions that includes sleep apnea Sleep apnea, in turn, comes in multiple variants, the most common of which ... more »
