GEN Ten Top Life Science Tools and Technologies for 2012 Survey

As a life scientist, you're on the front line playing a key role in the research, development, manufacture, and commercialization of novel biotech diagnostics and therapeutics. GEN is taking a survey and we want you, practicing biotech researchers, engineers, and technicians, to tell us what you consider the most important life science tool or technology that was introduced in 2012.  Click here to submit your nomination!

  • Detecting Rare Cancer Cells with Sound Waves

    A team of engineers from MIT, Penn State University, and Carnegie Mellon University is developing a novel way to isolate rare circulating tumor cells using sound waves to separate them from blood cells.

  • 3D Heart Simulation

    Researchers from the University of Tokyo built a 3D model of the human heart to help predict whether new drugs will cause irregular heartbeats. 

  • DNA: Past to Present

    In celebration of DNA Day on April 25, GEN presents this video timeline spanning 150 years of the history of DNA.

  • Exploring the PI3K/AKT/mTOR Pathway

    Novartis Oncology is investigating the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway to understand and treat advanced breast cancer.

  • Improving Brain Plasticity

    The Shatz Lab at Stanford developed a decoy drug that allowed mice to form new connections as adults, leading to findings that could eventually help people recover from stroke, forms of blindness and Alzheimer's disease. 

  • Parkinson's Diagnosis by Typing on a Keyboard

    MIT researchers show how analyzing people's keystrokes as they type can reveal information about the state of their motor function.

  • Employing CRISPR Technology in Drug Discovery

    CRISPR technology will allow AstraZeneca to identify and validate new drug targets in preclinical models that closely resemble human disease.

  • Cas9: As a Transcriptional Activator

    In this technical animation, Wyss Institute researchers instruct how they engineered a Cas9 protein to create a powerful and robust tool for activating gene expression. 

  • Complex 3D DNA structures

    MIT biological engineers have created a new computer model that allows them to design the most complex 3D DNA shapes ever produced, including rings, bowls, and geometric structures such as icosahedrons that resemble viral particles. 

  • Top 10 U.S. Biopharma Clusters

    Senior news editor Alex Philippidis discusses GEN’s annual ranking of the nation’s most nurturing regions.
