Research in Single Cell Manipulations and Measurement at MIT focuses on innovations that enable precise definition of individual cell states, and techniques that span microfluidics, single cell transcriptomics, and super-resolution imaging.
Whitehead Institute researchers have pinpointed distinct muscle subsets that orchestrate and pattern regrowth.
Technique may predict which therapies a patient is most sensitive or resistant to.
Doctors have many drugs available to treat multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. However, there is no way to predict, by genetic markers or other means, how a patient will respond to a particular drug. This can lead to months of treatment with a drug that isn’t working.
Focused laser beam could help scientists map connections amoung neurons that underlie behavior.
