In 1981, the first artificial skin was transplanted on patients in Boston. Developed by Ioannis V. Yannas and a research team at MIT,
the combination of cowhide, shark cartilage and plastic helped promote regrowth of the patient's skin cells.

NIBIB-funded researchers have discovered a way to easily and effectively fasten proteins to nanoparticles by mixing them together. The biotechnology is in its infancy but it already has shown promise for developing an HIV vaccine and as a way to target cancer cells.
BUFFALO, N.Y. – Fastening protein-based medical treatments to nanoparticles isn't easy. With arduous chemistry, scientists can do it. But like a doomed marriage, the fragile binding that holds them together often separates. This problem, which has limited how doctors can use proteins to treat ...

Just launched! New rigor and reproducibility web portal. Rigor ensures robust and unbiased experiment, and reproducibility validates the original results and readiness to progress to the next phase of research. The new NIH portal shows NIH efforts underway to enhance rigor and reproducibility in scientific research. http://1.usa.gov/1GieuzI

An NIBIB grantee has developed an ultrafast camera that can acquire two-dimensional images at 100 billion frames per second, a speed capable of revealing light pulses and other phenomena previously too fast to be observed.

In 1902, Pierre and Marie Curie isolated the first sample of the radioactive element radium.

Learn how radioactive elements are used in medical imaging
Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that uses radioactive tracers (radiopharmaceuticals) to assess bodily functions and to diagnose and treat disease. Specially designed cameras allow doctors to track the path of these radioactive tracers. Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography or SPECT ...

Cool science published in the journal Chemistry: Consumers are one step closer to benefiting from packaging that could give simple text warnings when food is contaminated with deadly pathogens like E. coli and Salmonella, and patients could soon receive real-time diagnoses of infections such as C. difficile right in their doctors’ offices, saving critical time and trips to the lab.
