Although macrophages were first described by Elie Metchnikoff in 1882, plenty of mysteries are still associated with the cell type. Indeed, while macrophages were once considered simply “garbage trucks” of the immune system due to their phagocytic property, their substantial and multifaceted contribution to immunological responses and homeostasis is becoming more apparent. Macrophages can produce a wide range of cytokines ...

Functional imaging is a rapidly growing field key to driving new understanding in biology. Insights into the function and interaction of molecules are the key to reveal the underlying cellular mechanisms. In this context, fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) is a powerful tool, providing valuable information beyond spectral imaging. FLIM is immune to concentration artefacts and sensitive to molecular environment such has p...

Join Theo Roth as he describes his lab’s novel CRISPR-Cas9 genome-targeting system that does not require viral vectors to modify T cell genomes, but instead focuses on HDR. This allows rapid and efficient insertion of large DNA sequences at specific sites in the genomes of primary human T cells, and permits individual or multiplexed modification of endogenous genes. Importantly, avoiding the use of viral vectors will resul...
