Exercising lab-grown human muscle autonomously blocks the damaging effects of interferon gamma — ScienceDaily

Biomedical engineers at Duke University have demonstrated that human muscle has an innate ability to ward off the damaging effects of chronic inflammation when exercised. The discovery was made possible through the use of lab-grown, engineered human muscle, demonstrating the potential power of the first-of-its-kind platform in such research endeavors. The results appear online on […]

Detecting gamma rays with giant perovskite crystals

Gamma ray detection is challenging at the best of times.

The process of detecting gamma rays causes serious damage to those detectors. Researchers have developed a large, self-healing crystal that might help to solve this problem. Gamma rays are the highest energy members of the electromagnetic spectrum. They also have the smallest wavelength, which means that they are quite difficult to detect. A gamma ray […]
