UT Southwestern Medical Center will soon have technologies that could expedite its work on projects ranging from cancer biology to drug discovery. The new $17 million facility will be home to three cryo-electron microscopes, which can generate 3-D images of objects at the atomic level. “Understanding these structures and the details of what’s going on across these scales is going to allow us to understand the causes and ways to fix human disease,” Dr. Sandra Schmid, chair of UTSW’s cell biology department, told the Dallas Morning News.
Ever wanted to peruse a searchable database of North Texas creatives and possibly make an art purchase all in one place? There’s an app for that (well, almost). Dallasite Merrick Porcheddu will launch her social networking app, CreateGate on May 16. Porcheddu designed the app to function as a mobile directory of local creative artisans.
