Newswise: Disarming bacteria with mucus and phages

Disarming bacteria with mucus and phages

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Millions of people are treated with antibiotics each year for infections or as a preventative measure. Two teams of NIBIB-funded scientists have been working to find alternative solutions for treating bacterial infections, especially antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Newswise: Tracking medications, finding tumors easier with new technique

Tracking medications, finding tumors easier with new technique

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

A novel method produces a new class of radioactive tracers that are used for medical imaging. The method allows them to attach radioactive atoms to compounds that have previously been difficult or even impossible to label. The advance will make it easier to track medications in the body and identify tumors and other diseases.

Newswise: First-in-human pilot imaging study shows improved heart attack prediction

First-in-human pilot imaging study shows improved heart attack prediction

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Doctors need better ways to detect and monitor heart disease, the leading cause of death in industrialized countries. Researchers have developed an improved optical imaging technique that found differences between potentially life-threatening coronary plaques and those posing less imminent danger for patients with coronary artery disease. Their method may give cardiologists additional data to identify patients at higher risk of future heart attacks and help them improve medical therapy.

Newswise: Scientists unveil search-and-replace genome editing

Scientists unveil search-and-replace genome editing

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Researchers have designed a more precise and versatile genome editing system, named prime editing, that harnesses the power of CRISPR-Cas9 in combination with another protein, reverse transcriptase, to directly edit DNA in human cells.

Newswise: Life-saving test for nutrient deficiency designed to perform in harsh environments

Life-saving test for nutrient deficiency designed to perform in harsh environments

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Mothers and children in low resource communities often suffer from micronutrient deficiencies. Now researchers have developed a system that can be used for tests to rapidly identify blood micronutrient levels in remote areas with limited healthcare infrastructure.

Founding NIBIB director receives prestigious NAE award

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

The annual awards ceremony at the National Academy of Engineering was highly unusual in that, of the 12 broad engineering categories represented at NAE – from chemical to mechanical and civil to electrical – three 2019 NAE awards were in biomedical engineering.

Newswise: Label-free microscope detects ovarian metastatic cancer

Label-free microscope detects ovarian metastatic cancer

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Cancer in the ovaries often metastasizes to the surrounding tissues, but is too small to be detected. Now a label-free microscopy technique is able to identify these regions with great accuracy, enabling early removal of these microscopic malignancies.
