Slippery kidney stone test

Researchers developed an improved urine-testing system with a biomimetic approach they refer to as slippery liquid-infused porous surface (SLIPS)-LAB.

Cord blood as source for stem cell transplant

In addition to showing a decrease in the chance of graft-versus-host disease, which develops when a transplanted blood system attacks a patient’s tissues, the study shows a slightly lower rate of relapse in these patients undergoing transplant with cord blood

Cellular decoys distract coronavirus

Wrapping polymer nanoparticles in membranes from human lung epithelial type II cells and immune cells creates a biomimetic system that can act as a decoy for SARS-CoV-2
