Study prompts new ideas on cancers' origins

EurekAlert! Biology - Thu, 2017-12-14 21:00
(Washington University School of Medicine) Cancer therapies often target cells that grow and divide rapidly, such as stem cells, but in studying how stomach cancers occur, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that even when the stomach isn't able to make stem cells, other cells in the stomach can begin to divide and contribute to precancerous lesions.

Scientists win a gold metal for liquid behavior

EurekAlert! Nanotechnology - Thu, 2017-12-14 21:00
(Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo) Researchers at University of Tokyo's Institute of Industrial Science report the first direct observation of atoms moving in liquid by collaborating with National Institute of Materials Science. Using scanning transmission electron microscopy, they find that gold ions diffuse through ionic liquid by a phenomenon they describe as a 'cage-jump.' Image analysis determined the diffusion coefficient and activation energy of the diffusion. Quantification of liquid at the atomic level is expected to contribute to the design of energy efficient devices.
