Lab-on-a-chip device mimics eye damage due to intense light

Light damaged retina cone photoreceptors will spread the death signal to neighbor cells and cause irrevocable damage in a 24-hour period.

Houston Methodist researchers developed a new lab-on-a-chip technology that could quickly screen possible drugs to repair damaged neuron and retinal connections, like what is seen in people with macular degeneration or who’ve had too much exposure to the glare of electronic screens. Read more

Discovery will impact design of drug delivery systems at the molecular level

Alessandro Grattoni, Ph.D., is one of the architects behind a nanochannel drug-delivery system that acts as a filter with hundreds of thousands of uniform nanoscale channels. His lab develops these implantable systems for controlled drug delivery to treat chronic diseases over extended periods of time.

Researchers at Houston Methodist and Rice University have made a discovery that will impact the design of not only drug delivery systems, but also the development of newer applications in water filtration and energy production. Read more
