Sticky-flare nanotechnology exposes RNA misregulation in living cells

RNA misregulation plays a critical role in the development of many disorders, such as mental disability, autism and cancer. A new technology - called 'Sticky-flares' - developed by nanomedicine experts, offers the first real-time method to track and observe the dynamics of RNA distribution as it is transported inside living cells.

Bringing back the magic in metamaterials

A single drop of blood is teeming with microorganisms - imagine if we could see them, and even nanometer-sized viruses, with the naked eye. That's a real possibility with what scientists call a 'perfect lens'. The lens hasn't been created yet but it is a theoretical perfected optical lens made out of metamaterials, which are engineered to change the way the materials interact with light.
