Researcher finds how cancer cells spreads

In a study published in Nature Communications, cancer researchers at Kanazawa University identify mechanisms by which malignant tumor cells extend their toxicity to distinct cell types and in turn help them spread. Most tumors consist…

Elastomers develop stronger bonds of attachment

Molecular interactions within gels and rubbers can be controlled to fabricate stronger and more elastic materials. Elastomers are the soft, elastic materials, like gels and rubbers, that are found in automobile and airplane parts, in…
