    Vaccines for infectious diseases contain weak or dead proteins or pathogens from the disease-causing microorganisms. The vaccines that fight cancer rely on proteins as well. However, scientists have created a new type of vaccine that contains genes and is expected to offer several advantages over its standard predecessor. After decades of research, genomic vaccines are being used in clinical trials.

    Princeton University and Washington University engineers have collaborated to create a new way to study the material structure of membraneless organelles and observe how they work. Their research could have a myriad of scientific applications and help scientists better understand incurable diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, Huntington's disease and cancers.

    Researchers used Organoids to learn how the Zika virus affects developing brains. With that, and other successes they've had working with organoids, researchers believe that they can use organoids to determine whether or not a drug will work on a patient by patient basis. In the cases where this technology is being used in trials, several insurers have started covering expensive prescriptions that would have been denied otherwise.

    Cell lines are important research tools, and contamination with microorganisms is one of the most common concerns. The cell lines need to be authentic to provide the most reliable results. This is why many grants require researchers to test cell lines for mycoplasma contamination.
