Jeff Bulte's Paper Among the Most Cited in Nature Biotechnology
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Nature Biotechnology published a list of their top cited papers and one of Jeff Bulte's came in at #11 with nearly 52 citations per year since it was published in 2001. The paper revealed a new way to track stem cells implanted in research animals using magnetic nanoparticles.
Zika Virus Infects and Kills Developing Brain Cells
Lab-grown human stem cells provided clues about how the Zika virus could be harming the brains of developing fetuses. Researchers found that the virus is particularly good at infecting and killing cells that form the brain’s outer layer, which could prevent normal brain growth.
Researchers Pinpoint Roadblocks to Lab-Grown Stem Cells’ Maturation
Johns Hopkins researchers report that a new study of mouse cells has revealed reasons why attempts to grow stem cells to maturity in the laboratory often fail, and provided a possible way to overcome such “developmental arrest.”
Magnetic Nanoparticles Could Be Key To Effective Immunotherapy
Results of a study led by Johns Hopkins investigators suggests that a device composed of a magnetic column paired with custom-made magnetic nanoparticles may hold a key to bringing the body’s own immune system to better fight cancer and infection.
Neurons Constantly Rewrite Their DNA
Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered that neurons are risk takers: They use minor “DNA surgeries” to toggle their activity levels all day, every day.
