ISS Uses Fluorescence Microscope For Live-Cell Imaging In Microgravity

A miniaturized fluorescence microscope makes it possible to observe changes in living cells in microgravity. Future observations of astronauts’ cells could tell scientists important information about how the body adapts to space. NASA reports International Space Station uses miniaturized Fluorescence Microscope to observe changes in Living Cells in Microgravity

An astronaut’s physiology changes during long-duration spaceflight because of the lack of gravity. Knowing the molecular basis of this cellular response to altered gravity is key for risk management, monitoring, and development of countermeasures for future long-term space exploration.

Imaging Live-Cell In Microgravity

Cellular adaptation to the microgravity environment can only be studied and understood in dynamic or live measurements. Live imaging experiments in space are a crucial contribution to the understanding of cellular adaptation to microgravity.

Antibiotics: Timing is Key to Evade Baterias

For bacteria facing a dose of antibiotics, timing might be the key to evading destruction. In a series of experiments, Princeton researchers found that cells that repaired DNA damaged by antibiotics before resuming growth had a much better chance of surviving treatment.

U.S. Military Reinvented Trauma Care

According to a study, researchers examine that the U.S. military has reinvented trauma care, offering hope for changing approaches to health care. The study was published online in Health Affairs. Researchers write about the U.S. military's transformation of trauma care experienced over the past 17 years, which included more than 27 major innovations.
