This week has been crazy. Work, the English classes and the #debate tournament (https://pixelfed.social/p/moshpirit/18942) gave me almost no time for me to do any other things, but it has been a great week after all! 😊
BTW, today I've been seeing Gerardus 't Hooft's (Nobel Prize in #Physics) conference here in my city!
Simplified TL;DR of the innovation discussed:
Researchers used microscopic oil-water droplets and a device with microscopic compartments designed to restrict binding to individual T-cell & cancer-cell pairs.
The setup allows quick sorting to identify matches in a matter of days rather than months. From there, you still have to design the actual TCR therapy, but this makes the preliminary step much shorter and cheaper, allowing solutions to reach the patient faster.
A new immunotherapy technique identifies T cell receptors with 100-percent specificity for individual tumors within just a few days, that can quickly create individualized cancer treatments that will allow physicians to effectively target tumors without the side effects of standard #cancer drugs. - https://news.uci.edu/2018/11/06/new-immunotherapy-technique-can-specifically-target-tumor-cells-uci-study-reports/ #science #medicine

Can relate hahahaha #vegan
#TIL that the Statue of Liberty walks over a broken chain and shackle, half-hidden by her robes and difficult to see from the ground. They represent freedom and the end of servitude and oppression. - https://www.nps.gov/stli/learn/historyculture/abolition.htm
