Hi there - I am writing a science activity for elementary students for a STEM camp focusing on the science of slime. The activity involve demonstrating diffusion. I made clear slime with borax and glue, please a small amount in a petri dish and added a drop of food coloring to the center of the dish. The campers will watch and measure the color as

DP44mt is a chelator molecule that binds iron and removes it from the intracellular environment. In cancer cells, this agent acts to induce cancer-cell death through upregulation of AMPK pathway and through corrupting autophagic mechanisms. One of the benefits of this therapeutic molecule is that it works against strains of cancers which are

Due to the circulatory nature of the human bloodstream, any agent introduced into the bloodstream at any location is quickly spread throughout the human body. This is good for drugs which need to be spread throughout the human body (i.e. systemic dosage) however is not very efficient for drugs whose location of action is only in one particular

Nanoparticles are generally created by a controlled nanoprecipitation of polymer into a non-solvent. There are many different ways to generate nanoparticles which fundamentally differ mostly on how the mixing of polymer solution and non-solvent is accomplished. Recently, researchers at San Jose State University used PLGA (multiple types) from
