Life of Cells: The Common Type

Just like anyone striving to reach their full potential, this Jurkat cell prefers Gibco® Performance FBS. Performance FBS (Fetal Bovine Serum) from Gibco® has low endotoxin levels (≤10 EU/mL) and is ideal for general cell culture with common cell lines.

  • Human Organs-On-Chips

    Wyss Human Organs-On-Chips will be on display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York until January 2016. This video shows how the design of the chips allow them to emulate organ–level functions.

  • Johns Hopkins Researchers Find Caffeine Enhances Memory

    For many people, caffeine consumption is the energy boost of choice to wake up or stay up. But researchers at the Johns Hopkins University have found another use for the stimulant: memory enhancer.

  • 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.
