2D Electronics' Metal or Semiconductor? Both

2D Electronics' Metal or Semiconductor? Both IBS researchers produced the first 2D field-effect transistor(FET) made of a single materialA research team at the Center for Artificial Low Dimensional Electronic Systems, within the Institute for Basic Science(IBS), has developed the first 2D electronic circuit made of a single material. Published on Nature Nanotechnology, this study shows a new method to make metal and semiconductor from the same material in order to manifacture 2D FETs.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.

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.

Can "large stars

Can "large stars' anti-aging research" help future memory devices?Nothing is forever, but is it possible to slow down inescapable decay? An inquiry into the delay of deterioration of quantum memory devices and formation of black holes explained with intuitive analogies from everyday life.
Inevitably, large stars at the end of their life collapse under the gigantic force of gravity, turning into black holes. We could cunningly ask if there is a way to delay this process; postpone the death of the star. While investigating "anti-aging therapy" of large stars, researchers at the Center for the Theoretical Physics of the Universe, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) conceptualized an ideal material that could store data for an exceptionally longer time than current short-lived devices, bringing new hints for future quantum memory technologies.

Correction of a Faulty Gene in Human Embryos

Correction of a Faulty Gene in Human EmbryosPublished in Nature, CRISPR-Cas9 genetic scissors open up new pathways to treat and prevent genetic diseases.
A new paper in Nature reports the correction of a disease-causing mutation in human embryos. The study is the result of an international collaboration of research centers: the Center for Genome Engineering, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, South Korea), Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU, USA), Salk Institute for Biological Studies (USA), BGI-Qingdao and Shenzhen Engineering Laboratory for Innovative Molecular Diagnostics (China).
