HKBU develops world-first metal-based probes for detection of dopamine receptors, a cancer biomarker
15-May-2018

A team at Hong Kong Baptist University has developed the world’s first iridium(III)-based probes for imaging dopamine receptors in living cells. The discovery has enhanced the understanding of dopamine receptors in carcinogenesis, and the findings can be potentially developed as a novel early cancer detection technology.

Why do we need one pair of genome?
25-May-2018

Scientists have unraveled how the cell replication process destabilizes when it has more, or less, than a pair of chromosome sets, each of which is called a genome — a major step toward understanding chromosome instability in cancer cells.
