Newswise: Cotton-Based Hybrid Biofuel Cell Could Power Implantable Medical Devices

Cotton-Based Hybrid Biofuel Cell Could Power Implantable Medical Devices

Georgia Institute of Technology

A glucose-powered biofuel cell that uses electrodes made from cotton fiber could someday help power implantable medical devices such as pacemakers and sensors. The new fuel cell, which provides twice as much power as conventional biofuel cells, could be paired with batteries or supercapacitors to provide a hybrid power source for the medical devices.

Suicide Handshakes Kill Precursor T Cells that Pose Autoimmune Dangers

Georgia Institute of Technology

The mechanisms that trigger the elimination of T cells that pose autoimmune dangers work very mechanically via physical forces. Nascent T cells must loosen their grip on human antigens within a reasonable time, in order to advance and defend the body. But if the nascent T cells, thymocytes, grip the human antigens too tightly, the immune cells must die. Here's how the grip of death works.

Stripping the Linchpins From the Life-Making Machine Reaffirms Its Seminal Evolution

Georgia Institute of Technology

This experiment had a good chance of crashing. Instead, it delivered whopping evidence to corroborate that the translational system, which makes life out of our genes, would have thrived basically as it is today 4 billion years ago at the earliest foundations of life on Earth.

NASA Pushes Exploration of Oceans in Our Solar System

Georgia Institute of Technology

Envision a yellow submarine on a rocket to Europa as a future culmination in the search for extraterrestrial life. A new $7 million NASA Astrobiology grant is fueling an alliance of oceanic astrobiology researchers who will unify their focus to probe oceans on our solar system neighbors for signs of life.
