    Cancer surgeons endeavor to remove all cancerous tissues from patients without removing the surrounding healthy tissue, but achieving that is more challenging than it sounds. To facilitate this goal, engineers and scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a gentle, handheld mass spectrometry pen. In just seconds, it can accurately detect whether or not tissue is cancerous.

    The Controlled-Rate freezing process preserves cells at negative 112 or negative 321 degrees Fahrenheit. These ultra-low temperatures slow or stop biological activity. Controlling the freezing rate allows scientists to remove water from the cells and preserve them in a way that improves sample viability.

    Based on mice research, scientists at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital theorize that adults lose this ability because of a chemical in the brain. By restricting that chemical, they made auditory learning more efficient in adult mice. The research findings could lead to treatments that reverse age-related hearing loss in humans.

    Scientists believe that cerebral organoids are the key to learning how the brain works and develops diseases. These clusters of tissue allow them to watch neurons grow and function in labs. This could change how they understand basic brain activity and the causes of brain impairments and disorders from autism to schizophrenia.
