YESCARTA | Groundbreaking Approval for 2nd CAR-T technology for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)

FDA approves CAR-T cell therapy to treat adults with certain types of large B-cell lymphoma

Yescarta is the second gene therapy product approved in the U.S.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Yescarta (axicabtagene ciloleucel), a cell-based gene therapy, to treat adult patients with certain types of large B-cell lymphoma who have not responded to or who have relapsed after at least two other kinds of treatment. Yescarta, a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy, is the second gene therapy approved by the FDA and the first for certain types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Post-doctoral position, Paris: neural monitoring of visceral inputs and emotions

      A post-doctoral position is open to study the link between emotions and the neural monitoring of visceral inputs. This project is part of a broader ERC project testing thehypothesis that the neural monitoring of visceral inputs (heart, stomach) generates a subject-centered reference frame, from which first-person perspective can develop, in perception, cognition and emotion.

    Motivated candidates with an excellent academic record in affective neuroscience and good programming abilities are welcome to apply. Knowledge of, and/or experience with, brain imaging and physiological recordings would be a strong plus. The position is initially funded for two years, beginning in January 2018 (flexible). The successful candidate will benefit from the interdisciplinary environment and computing resources of the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Department of Cognitive Science at Ecole Normale Supérieure in central Paris, as well as from the state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility (MEG, fMRI, TMS, intracranial EEG) at nearby Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière.

    Informal enquiries and formal applications (CV, motivation letter and contact details of at least 2 references) should be sent to catherine.tallon-baudry@ens.fr. The position is open until filled.

Repairing Organs with the Touch of a Nano-Chip

Nanochip could heal injuries or regrow organs with one touch by a device that instantly delivers new DNA or RNA into living skin cells to change their function.

What’s a nano chip?
A nanochip is an electronic integrated circuit so small that it can only be measured in the
nanometer scale. The nanochip scale has been the goal of modern technology. With nanochips it would be possible to have computers the size of micro SD cards but thousands of times more powerful because so many more components could fit in a very small space.

Security – Now Matters of the Heart | Trends in Biomedical Engineering

Brief History of Biometric System

In ancient times about 40,000 years ago, men and women who lived in caves of Indonesia are documented to have the oldest cave painting of hand stencils. Some believe the reasons was they were to communicate and their fingerprints ‘have acted as unforgettable signatures of the originator’.

Oldest known Hand Stencil

By 500BC the Babylonian and Egyptian merchants began to use fingerprints in clay tablets to settle business transactions. It was not until 1892 that a strong mathematical analysis of the index to uniquely classify fingerprint was developed.

Compressed Sensing for Rapid MRI: Need for Speed

MRI is a fascinating imaging technology used to visualize the internal structures of the body. However, acquisition speed still remains a challenge especially for patients who are anxious, can’t keep still or have limited breath hold capacity. These challenges can be solved with Compressed Sensing (CS) which helps us in decreasing the acquisition times without sacrificing image quality.

Conventionally, the compression of images is performed after the acquisition of the entire image. This is done to reduce data storage and facilitate transfer of such data. The idea behind CS is to compress and acquire only the most important coefficients of the signal during the acquisition.
