An optical lens so powerful that it lets you view features the size of a small virus on the surface of a living cell in its natural environment. The study is published in Nature Materials.

Novel Possible Target for Blood Cancer Therapies

Researchers discovered the contribution of a specific gene in the proper development of blood cells that give rise to hematopoietic stem cells. The scientists also found that disruption of this gene resulted in various blood cancers and anemia in animal models. The findings identify a potential target for the development of treatments for some types of leukemia, anemia and other blood disorders.
