A*STAR scientists have developed strategies to manipulate surface tension in fluids and modify the surface properties of materials. Their findings could increase the yield of crude oil from oil wells and lead to super water- or oil-repellent surfaces.
If cell-based therapies are to make it to the clinic, methods to grow stem cells in vast quantities will need to be developed. Here’s how A*STAR scientists are tackling the challenge of manufacturing stem cells at scale.
Dr. Sydney Brenner, the visionary molecular biologist and Nobel laureate who turned a humble soil worm into one of the most-studied organisms in biology, passed away on April 5, 2019 in Singapore. He was 92.
