Gel to Fight Rheumatoid Arthritis

Gel to Fight Rheumatoid Arthritis IBS scientists developed a potentially therapeutic gel, which activates in the presence of nitric oxide, absorbs excess fluids and delivers drugsIBS scientists at the Center for Self-Assembly and Complexity, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), invented a hydrogel to fight rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases. Published in Advanced Materials, this jelly-like material could be used to absorb extra fluids in swelling joints and release drugs. DETAIL VIEW

Draining Eyes Clogged with Glaucoma

Draining Eyes Clogged with GlaucomaIBS biologists find an explanation for the increase in intraocular pressure in glaucoma and a promising therapeutic option to rejuvenate the eye
Researchers at the Center for Vascular Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) have identified a new mechanism involved in the development and progression of glaucoma, and found a potential therapeutic option to treat it.

2D Electronics

2D Electronics' Metal or Semiconductor? BothIBS researchers produced the first 2D field-effect transistor (FET) made of a single material
Modern life will be almost unthinkable without transistors. They are the ubiquitous building blocks of all electronic devices: each computer chip contains billions of them. However, as the chips become smaller and smaller, the current 3D field-electronic transistors (FETs) are reaching their efficiency limit.

How New Blood Vessels Sprout

How New Blood Vessels SproutIBS biologists discovered a key regulator of normal as well as pathological formation of new blood vessels.
New blood vessels branch out of preexisting ones is via a process called angiogenesis. Although this is essential for survival, development and wound healing, on the flip side, it also feeds and progresses malignant tumors, as well as other diseases.
