Sarah Catherine Gilbert (born April 1962) is a British vaccinologist who is Professor of Vaccinology at the University of Oxford and co-founder of Vaccitech.
Gilbert specialises in the development of vaccines against influenza and emerging viral pathogens. She led the development and testing of the universal flu vaccine, which underwent clinical trials in 2011.
Co-application of fluorescent quantum dot nanocrystals and therapeutics has recently become a promising theranostic methodology for cancer treatment. We developed a tumor-targeted lipid nanocarrier that demonstrates notable efficacy in gene delivery as well as tumor bio-imaging.
Coupling of aptamer molecules against the EGF receptor (EGFR) to the distal termini of lipid nanoparticles provided the carrier with tumor-specific recognition capability.
We currently believe that instead of “antioxidants,” it is more appropriate to develop “modulators of oxidative stress” because, depending on the condition, it could be more beneficial to reduce or increase the oxidative stress.
Two scientists contributed to the discovery of the first virus, Tobacco mosaic virus.
In 1935 tobacco mosaic virus became the first virus to be crystallized; in 1955 the poliomyelitis virus was crystallized.
An automated procedure was developed to determine the geometrical and chemical interactions of crystalline virus particles using the crystal parameters, particle position, orientation, and atomic coordinates for an icosahedral asymmetric unit.
By Vangie Beal. Abbreviation for terahertz. A unit of measurement of frequency, also known as cycles per second. One TeraHertz (THz) is equal to 1012 (10 to the power of 12)hertz (Hz) or one thousand gigahertz (GHz). See also Hz.
Researchers from Hiroshima University and National Institute of Information and Communications Technology in Japan have announced the development of a terahertz (THz) transmitter
@Light2020To In this study, ultrasound-mediated cavitation of microbubbles was investigated as a mean of enhancing the delivery of a liposome designed for chemo-radionuclide therapy targeted to EGFR overexpressing cancer.
@Light2020To Method: Liposomes (111In-EGF-LP-Dox) were prepared by encapsulation of doxorubicin (Dox) and surface functionalisation with Indium-111 tagged epidermal growth factor.
Graphene atomic structure with a translational vector T and a chiral vector Ĉh of a CNT
A highly effective method of delivering carbon nanotubes into cells is Cell squeezing, a high-throughput vector-free microfluidic platform for intracellular delivery developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the labs of Robert S. Langer.
Virtually any type of molecule can be delivered into any type of cell.
@Pojomato Electric Field Amplification inside a Porous Spherical Cavity Resonator Excited by an External Plane Wave
@Pojomato A spherical polyhedron constructed from open surface polygons is an electromagnetic wave resonator that can be excited by an external plane wave.
@Pojomato The resonant frequencies of the porous sphere depend on the radius of the sphere and the area of the openings in the surface of the sphere. The strength of the internal electric fields varies with the width of the conducting edges that comprise the polyhedron frame.
