3-D Printing Tech Could Someday Make Replacement Ears a Reality

By Jesse Stanchak

Athletes, the elderly and others who suffer from injuries and arthritis can lose cartilage and experience a lot of pain. Cartilage is a tissue which has very poor regenerative potential. Researchers are now reporting in Biomacromolecules, however, that they found a way to produce the “rubbery”  cartilage tissue with 3-D bioprinting and human cells that produce […]

Video: Using cactus to clean fish tanks

By Jesse Stanchak

Fish farms are essential to meeting global demand for seafood. Keeping so many fish in compact tanks can have some unpleasant side effects, however, as sediments, bacteria and heavy metals like arsenic can build up in the water — and then end up in someone’s fish dinner. Cleaning these tanks can be difficult and expensive, […]

Turning a bacterial weapon into a new drug delivery mechanism

By Jesse Stanchak

The fight to survive, even among single-celled organisms, can be nasty. Some bacteria defend themselves using protein ribbons that can unfurl, punching through the membranes of other cells  as it elongates and releasing a deadly payload. New research in ACS Synthetic Biology suggests there may be a way to harness this ability to deliver drugs or […]
