A compound was developed from a new material, described as an easily injected hydrogel, which acts as a “homing” cue to attract drug molecules to sites bearing a tumor.
The Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility was created in the fall of 2008 with the vision to establish a state-of-the-art research core that will consolidate the imaging capacity that is currently dispersed around campus and augment it with powerful new imaging modalities....
On Monday, May 6th, 2019 the Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF) will host its annual Midwest Imaging and Microanalysis Workshop at the McKenna Conference Center.
Through the efforts of the faculty and various stakeholders across campus, the Electron Microscopy Core has received funding to purchase a Helios G4 UX Dual Beam electron microscope.
Platins, the most widely used chemotherapeutic drugs, can also cause life-threatening allergic reactions. A Notre Dame-led team has developed a safer way of diagnosing hypersensitivity, so that cancer patients can more quickly and reliably receive the treatment they need.
Scientists at the University of Notre Dame discovered microglia actually squeeze through the spinal boundary, crossing into the peripheral nervous system in response to injury.
Rebecca Wingert, Elizabeth and Michael Gallagher Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame, recently published findings in ELife that have revealed new insights into the genetic pathways that control kidney cell development.
Researchers at the University of Notre Dame are invited to submit nominations for one of three available imaging awards from the Integrated Imaging Facility. The Best Imaging Award Program was created to recognize faculty, students, and staff who utilize state-of-the-art...
Applications are now being accepted for the summer 2019 NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowship (NURF) program. More than 20 projects in nanotechnology are available to choose from, and the program is open to current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors attending any college or university....
More than 80 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers gave either podium or poster presentations during the 2018 Colleges of Science and Engineering Joint Annual Meeting (COSE-JAM), held in early December in the Jordan Hall of Science galleria.
Reflectance imaging describes a subset of light microscopy methods that permit the formation of an intensity image from light that is back-scattered from a sample. This allows reflectance imaging to be performed alongside techniques such as fluorescence imaging, or as...
The University of Notre Dame and the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI) have signed a strategic alliance agreement to encourage collaborations between Notre Dame and IBRI researchers.
Ferroelectric materials have the potential to improve a number of characteristics of electronic devices, including memory and power efficiency. However, these materials are difficult to predict and, therefore, to effectively use. To better understand ferroelectric dynamics and variability, Notre Dame...
Faculty are now invited to apply for awards within the Notre Dame Research Internal Grants Program. The deadline to apply to the available grants is Monday, February 4, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
Each year, grants from the Discovery Fund are awarded to researchers who propose novel technologies and diagnostics that can improve human and environmental health.
In a new study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, scientists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that the pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) releases RNA into infected cells.
Siyuan Zhang, the Dee Associate Professor of Biological Sciences who is also affiliated with the Harper Cancer Research Institute, landed a nearly $1.1 million Breast Cancer Research Program Breakthrough Award through the Department of Defense in August.
Perlara, a rare diseases drug discovery company based in the San Francisco Bay area, recently announced a collaboration called PerlQuest with the University of Notre Dame’s Warren Family Research Center for Drug Discovery and Development.
Researchers at the University of Notre Dame studying tumors in prostate cancer models found that nitration of an amino acid can inhibit T-cell activation, thwarting the T-cell’s ability to kill cancer cells.
