Latest Innovations

Miniaturized Walking Biological Machines

 

Dr. Bashir has developed a walking biological machine. This "bio-bot" can move spontaneously, and may be useful for sensing, information processing, transport,...

New Way to Detect DNA Changes

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois have identified a new, cheaper and easier way to detect methylation (alterations) of DNA. By measuring the methylation...

Engineered Reprogramming of Somatic Cells

 

Dr. Kris Kilian has designed specific micropatterned surfaces as a substrate for somatic cell reprogramming. Geometric cues facilitate the reprogramming of somatic...

Microfluidic Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Device for Epigenomic Analysis

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois have created a process for the epigenomic analysis of single cells. This process combines the uses of single cell...

Improved Wafer for Raman Spectroscopy

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a nanostructure and a method of creating that nanostructure for use in Raman Spectroscopy. The wafer is...

Bi-Functional Colorimetry and Surfance-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy Sensor

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a platform capable of both colorimetry and Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) analysis. The...

Highly Accelerated Image Reconstruction in Medical Imaging

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a state of the art method that can reconstruct images in better quality, in less time, with fewer scans...

Higher Performance Proteases for Scarless Tag Removal

 

Dr. van der Donk from the University of Illinois has characterized expression vectors and a family of proteases that are useful in removing affinity tags after...

Hydrophilic Nanocluster Contrast Agents for High Sensitivity Magnetic Resonance Imaging

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a new contrast agent for use with MRIs. The agent is made of super-paramagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles...

Pharmaceutical Compounds and Pathways from Actinobacteria

 

Dr. Metcalf and Dr. van der Donk from the University of Illinois have discovered 12 novel phosphonate natural products as well as the genes responsible for the...
