  • Controlling CAR T cells with light selectively destroys skin tumors in mice February 19, 2020
    Bioengineers have developed a control system that could make CAR T-cell therapy safer and more powerful when treating cancer. By programming CAR T cells to switch on when exposed to blue light, the researchers controlled the cells to destroy skin tumors in mice without harming healthy tissue.
  • New areas in human genomes linked to skin cancer risk February 18, 2020
    A cancer researcher has identified eight new genomic regions that increase a person's risk for skin cancer. Researchers have discovered eight new loci -- locations on a person's genome -- that are susceptible to the development of squamous cell skin cancer.
  • Highly sensitive sensors show promise in enhancing human touch February 18, 2020
    People rely on a highly tuned sense of touch to manipulate objects, but injuries to the skin and the simple act of wearing gloves can impair this ability. Scientists report the development of a new tactile-enhancement system based on a highly sensitive sensor. The sensor has remarkable sensitivity, allowing the wearer to detect the light […]
  • Western diet rich in fat and sugar linked to skin inflammation February 18, 2020
    Dietary components, rather than obesity itself, may lead to skin inflammation and the development of psoriasis, a study has found.
