Protein Fragment Serve As A Drug Target In Treating Stroke Patients

New research has revealed the 3-D structure of a protein fragment that could serve as a drug target in treating stroke patients. The study was published in Nature Methods,

A novel hybrid approach performed by researchers from Clemson University's department of physics and astronomy and Stony Brook University has revealed a 3-D structure of a protein fragment that could serve as a drug target in treating stroke patients.

Potential Microscopes Help To Visualize Small Things

Two high-resolution microscopes will allow researchers to study and test materials at the atomic level with unprecedented precision. Standing beneath a pearly white, towering microscope called the JEOL NEOARM, Penn's Douglas Yates explains that scanning transmission electron microscopes are so powerful they can image down to the atomic level.

These microscopes fire energetic electrons through the object being examined. This allows researchers to create an atomic-scale image through the interaction between the electrons and the atoms in the sample.
