innoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – April 2021

This months article is an intersting review that summarizes the current understanding of potential cardiovascular toxicities of CD19-specific Car T cell therapies. CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapies have shown remarkable early success in highly refractory and relapsing hematological malignancies. However, most significant side effects of the therapy are cytokine release syndrome (CRS)…Continue readinginnoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – April 2021

innoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – March 2021

This month’s innovation series research article was published from our colleagues at the University of Cologne last week. Find out how you can optimize cardiac differentiation out of human induced pluripotent stem cells. This biomimetic approach is based on poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) substrates with similar stiffness to the native heart and a well-defined surface chemistry obtained…Continue readinginnoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – March 2021

innoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – February 2021

This month’s innovation series article deals with how to “sense” magnetic fields. Ikeya & Woodward demonstrate that flavin-based autofluorescence in native, untreated HeLa cells is magnetic field sensitive, due to the formation and electron spin–selective recombination of spin-correlated radical pairs. The radical pair mechanism is the favored hypothesis for explaining biological effects of weak magnetic…Continue readinginnoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – February 2021

innoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – January 2021

The publication of Heiko Lemcke et al., 2020 made it to our very first “innovation series” research article of the month, due to it’s focus on a very interesting and different approach to evaluate iPSC cardiomyocyte maturation! Learn more about how you can use a super resolution-based approach to quantitatively evaluate the structural maturation of…Continue readinginnoVation Series – Research Article of the Month – January 2021
