Geometry is key to T-cell triggering

Engineers discover geometric underpinnings of T-cell stimulation through precise engineering of T-cell receptor geometry, building a 3D nanofabricated biomimetic surface that simulates the key components of an antigen-presenting cell.

Multifunctional bacterial microswimmer able to deliver cargo and destroy itself

The untethered biohybrid microswimmer is able to transport and deliver cargo encapsulated into a guidable red blood cell, while an attached bacterium, one of the most efficient swimmers in nature, acts as a propeller to move it forward. Once it has reached its destination and delivered its cargo, the scientists can destroy the microswimmer using infrared light.
