Ultrafast Micro-CT for Imaging Free-Moving Animals
All current small animal imaging requires some form of anesthetization. The anesthetization not only may interfere with the subject's pathophysiology under study, and also is a costive and skill-demanding process. The current invention will eliminate the need for administration of anesthesia during small animal micro-CT imaging experiments, thus leading...

Methods For Therapeutic Targeting Cancer Stem Cells
Patients with the brain cancer glioblastoma have about a year to live once diagnosed. Glioblastoma kills quickly as it grows aggressively and patients develop resistance to the anti-cancer drug temozolomide. Studies by a team at Virginia Tech indicate that a protein called Cx43 may hold the key to temozolomide resistance. Our researchers have found...
