Surgery with rockets

Self-propelled nano/microscale rockets have been developed that consume locally supplied chemical fuels to generate thrust, analogous to how large rocket engines ignite onboard propellants. Such rockets offer tremendous advantages as nano/microdevices. They can be designed for low or high velocities (up to 1000 body lengths/sec), can tow large loads, have remarkable design flexibility, and allow surface functionalisation with nanomaterials and biomolecules.1,2Unlike their macroscale counterparts, these rockets have the advantage of harvesting their chemical fuel directly from their surrounding environment. In …

Understanding the relationships between immune cells and stem cells for bone regenerative medicine

The skeletal system in human body undergoes a constant life-long process of adaptation, which consists of osteoblast-driven formation and osteoclast-driven resorption. The regenerative power of endogenous cells is required for bone development, repair and regeneration. This is controlled by various cell types that secrete a wide spectrum cytokines that temporally and spatially dictate stem cell commitment and modulate the bone microenvironment. Increasing evidence has shown that among the various types of cells that mediate bone formation and regeneration, macrophages play …
