Innovations

  1. 1. origination: the act or process of inventing or introducing something new. new idea or method New way of doing something
  2. 2. Some milestones in this field are the following: • New DNA vaccine technology •Photo- Morpholinos (gene tools) • DNA bullets tag criminals for later arrest • Innovative technologies for biology and healthcare •New way to kill Lymphoma without chemotherapy •Four-stranded DNA structure? •Possibility of an Alzheimer’s vaccine
  3. 3. New DNA vaccine technology Scientists revealed the universal platform for delivering highly potent DNA vaccines, by employing a reengineered bacterium to speed delivery to host cells in the vaccine recipient.
  4. 4. They have pioneered techniques using salmonella as a cargo vessel to deliver a suite of disease antigens to the recipient. The result is an ongoing refinement of RASVs (Recombinant Attenuated Salmonella Vaccines), capable of provoking an intense, system-wide immune response and effective immunity.
  5. 5. Photo- morpholinos
  6. 6. DNA bullets tag criminals for later arrest •The bullets are fired from a rifle and pistol, and are effective at distances up to about 130 feet. •The material is made of a polymer called polypyrrole and another polymer called polyol-borate
  7. 7. •Technological platforms aimed at deciphering protein structure
  8. 8. •Development of point of care on a chip in which selfcontained portable labs can concentrate a tiny sample of blood, water or air, identify its molecular structure and immediately detect pathogens or toxins
  9. 9. Annihilating lymphoma is starving it to death by depriving it of what it appears to be a favorite food: HDL cholesterol
  10. 10. New nanoparticle acts like a secret double agent. It appears to the cancerous lymphoma cell like a preferred meal- HDL. When the particle engages the cell, it plugs it up and blocks cholesterol from entering.
  11. 11. The technique allows researchers to look at the effect of genes in specific tissues of an organism or during different periods of development.
  12. 12. •Four-stranded DNA structure, known as G- quadruplexes, exist within the human genome. •Form in regions of DNA that are rich in the building block Guanine.
  13. 13. •Quadruplexes are more likely to occur in genes of cells that are rapidly dividing, such as cancer cells. •Research highlights the potential for exploiting these unusual DNA structures to beat cancer.
  14. 14. •The molecule MPL( monophosphoryl lipid A) can eliminate up to 80% of the senile plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease when injected into mice.
