Image of the month - A sneak peek at primary cilia


Cilia and flagella are fascinating organelles that can be seen as thin membrane-bound projections extending from the body of various cell types. Most well-known are the flagella of sperm cells and the motile cilia that are present in epithelial cells of the lungs and fallopian tubes, as well as ependymal cells of the brain ventricles. These types of cilia mediate movement. However, there is a third type of cilia, which are non-motile and present in most human cell types, referred to as primary cilia...Read more

Webinar: Next generation pan-cancer blood proteome profiling using proximity extension assay


In an Olink-sponsored Labroots webinar Professor Mathias Uhlen will describe a novel strategy based on plasma profiling and machine learning that explores the proteome signatures of 12 major cancer types and then uses the information to identify all the individual cancer types as a first step towards new diagnostic tools for cancer...Read more

Innovation - the Swedish way


Sweden has been placed first in the European Commission's Innovation ranking during the last years, and also ranks top three in the Global Innovation Index based on parameters such as degree of knowledge, technology outputs and human capital. Sweden further performs remarkably well in terms of innovation start-ups. In a recent book, "Innovation - the Swedish way" published by the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA), the authors Henrik Berggren and Eva Krutmeijer explore the structures that created this beneficial innovation climate and describe 50 innovations from Sweden that "has changed the world"...Read more
