Single-atom tractor beams power chemical catalysis

Unlocking possible new ways to make light act powerfully and drive chemical transformations. By trapping light into tiny gaps only a few atoms wide, a team from the NanoPhotonics Centre…

Boot camp for the immune system

Researchers discover new way in which T cells learn to tell friend from foe. The human immune system is a nearly perfect defense mechanism. It protects the body from disease-causing…

COVID-19 fattens up our body’s cells to fuel its viral takeover

Compounds that cut off the flow of fatty fuel stop the virus from replicating in the lab. The virus that causes COVID-19 undertakes a massive takeover of the body’s fat-processing…

Bacteria’s shapeshifting behaviour clue to new treatments for urinary tract infections

Rise of antimicrobial resistance adds urgency to research. Urinary tract infections are both very common and potentially very dangerous. More than half of all Australian women will suffer from a…

A rapid and precise total assessment method for cells

From outside to inside: Researchers at Nara Institute of Science and Technology show that using four frequencies of applied voltage can improve the measurement of cell size and shape during…

Prostate cancer hijacks tumor cell biorhythm to evade hormone therapy

Therapy sensitivity in prostate cancer halted by protein regulating circadian rhythm. Hormone therapy is successful at keeping metastatic prostate cancer under control, but eventually the tumor cells become resistant to…
