- Zebrafish capture a 'window' on the cancer process 4 June 2019 Cancer-related inflammation impacts significantly on cancer development and progression. New research has observed in zebrafish, for the first time, that inflammatory cells use weak spots or micro-perforations in the extracellular matrix barrier layer to access skin cancer cells.
- New Max Planck-Bristol Centre for Minimal Biology launched 27 March 2019 Building stripped-down versions of life using protocells, genome delivery systems and synthetic cytoskeletons comprise some of the groundbreaking research due to take place at a new Centre launched at the University of Bristol today [Wednesday 27 March]. The Max Planck-Bristol Centre for Minimal Biology, a partnership between the University of Bristol and the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science (MPG) in Germany, aims to advance the future of health and medicine by understanding the fundamental nature of life.
- Feel the Power: Synthetic biologists craft first nano-sensor of cellular energy states 4 March 2019 Professors Imre Berger (Bristol) and Uwe Schlattner (Grenoble) lead a team of scientists to engineer AMPfret, the first nano-sensor capable of measuring cellular energy states in cells in vivo.
