Electron theory solves heavy problem

Today’s high-tech devices would not exist without a good theory to predict how electrons move through semiconductor crystals. But gaps remain in the theory. Resolving these problems could lead to a more robust theory that enables new breakthroughs in electronics.

Embryos back to front

An important stage in the early development of an embryo is the formation of the dorsal–ventral axis, which distinguishes the front (ventral) side of the animal from the back (dorsal). RIKEN researchers are identifying the genes and proteins that contribute to this process in Xenopus laevis, the African clawed frog.

Stimulating retinal repair

Repairing damaged retinas is now a possibility. Japanese researchers from RIKEN and Kyoto University have demonstrated retinal regeneration in a mammalian model. It is a discovery that may ultimately lead to new therapies for retinal diseases including the degenerative disease called retinitis pigmentosa.
