For young women facing a cancer diagnosis, the fear of chemotherapy-induced sterility often leads to seeking fertility-protective measures. Current methods of fertility preservation, however, can delay cancer treatment and come with the risk of reintroducing cancer cells later. Today, a new technique for in vitro culture and maturation of ovarian follicles holds promise for treating infertility in these cases.
A novel drug delivery technique has nanoparticles thumbing for a ride aboard red blood cells. This promising work comes from researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who presented their findings at the 2012 Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh.
The U.S. is highly dependent on foreign countries for rare earth elements (REEs) and strategic and critical materials (S&CMs). Dr. Tedd Lister and Dr. Eric Peterson of the Idaho National Laboratory propose “urban mining” to address the concerns associated with traditional mining.
