Seeing smaller than light: How an advanced microscopy technique can help in the fight against cancer and other diseases
Microscopes are some of the most powerful tools in cell biology — but what if the cell component that needs to be imaged is smaller than the wavelengths of visible light? A new study from Professor Chris Yip (ChemE, BME) proposes a solution, one that could help advance research into cancer and other diseases.
New insight into how nanoparticles form could advance technologies from solar cells to medical tests
A research team from U of T Engineering has discovered previously unknown phenomena in the growth of nanoparticles. The insights could open new ways of engineering these tiny structures for a variety of purposes, from designing next-generation solar cells to developing new medical tests and treatments.
The Centre for Research and Applications in Fluidic Technologies (CRAFT) has opened a new and expanded Tissue Foundry at the University of Toronto. The new facility builds CRAFT’s fabrication capacity following the launch of its Device Foundry in 2021.
