Researchers operate lab-grown heart cells by remote control
ScienceDaily: Health & Medicine : May 18, 2018, 11:10 am
Researchers have developed a technique that allows them to speed up or slow down human heart cells growing in a dish on command -- simply by shining a light on them and varying its intensity. The cells are grown on a material called graphene, which converts light into electricity, providing a more realistic environment than standard plastic or glass laboratory dishes.

Researchers discover how body temperature wrecks potential dengue, Zika vaccine
ScienceDaily: Health & Medicine : May 18, 2018, 11:10 am
A major route toward creating effective vaccines against dengue virus and Zika involves the E protein that covers the surface of each viral particle. But creating such a vaccine has proven difficult for a number of reasons. Now researchers have delineated the details of one major barrier to a promising vaccine. It's something we all have -- a natural body temperature of about 98.6 degrees.
