Rapid monitoring of bacterial growth and antibiotic susceptibility with quantum semiconductor biochips

Public Health authorities sound the alarm over the increasing bacterial resistance to antibiotics and project a dark picture back to the pre-antibiotic era. One avenue of solutions proposed is to identify the spectrum of susceptibility to antibiotics

Modeling mammary gland development: understanding the role of cell types and hormonal signaling in the terminal end bud

The mammary gland is an organ that develops almost completely after birth. It has been extensively studied and its development is well-characterized. As such, it provides an excellent model system to study the details of mammalian organ

Chemistry from the kitchen to the primordial soup

The Maillard reaction, also known as the non-enzymatic browning reaction, is a series of chemical interactions that occur in food that are subjected to thermal treatment such as roasting, frying, grilling, and cooking. The Maillard reaction is

Does bioenvironment affect the ionization of drugs?

The ionization is one of the most important parameters that must be taken into account when predicting the pharmacological behavior of drugs. The ionization profile directly affects water solubility which has significant influence on drug bioavailability and
