A machine-learning method finds patterns of health decline in ALS, informing future clinical trial designs and mechanism discovery. The technique also extends to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. (Fraenkel lab)
Separating densely packed molecules before imaging allows them to become visible for the first time. (Boyden lab)
Developed by the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology, the assay can provide new details about the type of SARS-CoV-2 circulating in a community. (Alm lab)
This project aims to get accurate local climate information into the hands of those who must ready their communities for wilder weather. (Selin lab)
Design from the Swager Lab uses electronic polymers, rather than colored lines, to indicate a positive response, enabling quantitative monitoring of biomarkers. (Swager lab)
The peptide is used by legumes to control nitrogen-fixing bacteria; it may also offer leads for treating patients with too much heme in their blood. (Walker Lab)
The paper test measures the level of neutralizing antibodies in a blood sample and could help people decide what protections they should take against infection. (Bhatia Lab)
Utilizing organoids to model early development, scientists employed a developing
microscopy technology to observe that new neurons struggled to attain their
developmental goal. (So Lab) "C:\Users\manda\Dropbox (MIT)\CEHS EVENTS\2022 website articles\Imaging-Technology-Illustrates-the-Migration-Path-of-Neurons-in-Rett-Syndrome.pdf"
By tracing the steps of liver regrowth, MIT engineers hope to harness the liver’s regenerative abilities to help treat chronic disease. (Bhatia Lab)
Using this diagnostic, doctors could avoid prescribing antibiotics in cases where they won’t be effective. (Bhatia Lab)
Complex sugar molecules called glycans could help treat some of the most difficult infections. (Ribbeck Lab)
When coated onto plastic tubing, the catalysts could act on chemicals flowing through, helping to synthesize drugs and other compounds. (Swager Lab)
Researchers build a portable desalination unit that generates clear, clean drinking water without the need for filters or high-pressure pumps. (Jongyoon Han lab).
The computer-vision technique behind these maps could help avoid contrail production, reducing aviation’s climate impact. Read more.
SMART researchers find explanation for why some patients might experience diarrhea after taking amoxicillin-clavulanate.
A computational study shows that dozens of mutations help the virus’ spike protein evade antibodies that target SARS-CoV-2. Read more.
