Results of a pilot study conducted by NUS researchers provided evidence that an artificial intelligence known as CURATE.AI has the potential to enhance learning, and could pave the way for promising applications in personalised digital therapy, including the prevention of cognitive decline.
11 microscopes at the NUS Mechanobiology Institute can now be used without obtaining a license first. A decade ago, NUS requested this policy change from the National Environment Agency, and the licensing regulations were altered in October 2018 to promote research efficiency and collaboration.
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a highly contagious infection that if overlooked can have life-threatening consequences. Associate Professor Sylvie Alonso from NUS Microbiology and Immunology explained that identifying attributes in our own cells might be the key for tackling this disease.
The rise of neurological and sensory disorders worldwide has been fuelled by longer life expectancies and increased neurodegenerative risk factors. Now, with the need for reliable and affordable therapeutics, umbilical cord lining cell-based regenerative medicine holds great promise for patients.
For the first time, the brain's immune cells (red) have been revealed at cellular resolution in a live brain, thanks to scientists from Duke-NUS. It is hoped this discovery will clarify the important role these cells play in neurological diseases.
NUS researchers have shown that carbon black, a common pigment, demonstrates a range of beautiful colours when heated with a focussed laser, and has the potential to be used in fluorescence displays.
A team of researchers from the Mechanobiology Institute at NUS, Temasek Life-Sciences Laboratory, and NUS Biological Sciences have found the cue that enables symmetry breaking in the nematode worm C. elegans zygote.
