Artificial Protein Switch for Smart Cell Therapies

Researchers from University of California, San Francisco and the University of Washington have developed a new artificial protein switch, dubbed LOCKR. Their work demonstrates that the new switch can be used to control many intracellular processes, including mediating molecular traffic inside a cell, degrading specific proteins, and causing a cell to self-destruct. This exciting development… Read More »

Artificial intelligence can identify at-risk patients, inform care and improve disease prevention

There’s no shortage of buzz around artificial intelligence and its potential impact on a variety of areas within healthcare, from patient care to revenue cycle operations. There is an emerging trend toward AI assets that amplify the value of patient data and provide an extendable, scalable pathway to effective primary disease prevention.

Artificial Embryos Made from Stem Cells Raise Ethical Issues

Stem cells (so-called “master cells”) are unique and important in the body because they can do almost anything, and scientists have only begun to discover their potential. That’s why researchers’ use of them has created controversy, attracting the attention of scientists, policymakers, and bioethicists across the globe. Stem cells can transform into any of the… Read More »
