Scientists at PSI have used mechanical stimuli to turn connective tissue cells into stem-cell-like cells and transplanted these into damaged skin tissue. This speeds up the regeneration of the skin and the healing of wounds.
PSI researchers take pictures of cell nuclei using modern high-resolution imaging techniques, employ learning algorithms to comb through these data, and thus can more reliably identify anomalies.
Each cell in the human body contains a cytoskeleton. Contrary to what the name suggests, the cytoskeleton is far more than just a support structure.
The cytoskeleton is a little marvel. Probing it promises to reveal, among other things, new possibilities for cancer therapy.
A place for cutting-edge research: PSI researchers to receive comprehensive funding from the US NIH for their brain research.
Understanding this motion may help to tackle health problems that affect cilia, which range from fertility issues to lung disease and COVID-19.
PSI researchers record a molecular film of a cancer drug fitted with a photoswitch. This opens new insights for drug developers.
Optimised by nature over 100 million years of evolution, this smart liquid provides a crucial coupling that ensures cell division correctly proceeds.
