Water-Based ‘Engine’ Propels Tumor Cells Through Tight Spaces in the Body

Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered a new mechanism that explains how cancer cells spread through extremely narrow three-dimensional spaces in the body by using a propulsion system based on … more

A Tiny Pinch from a ‘Z-Ring’ Helps Bacteria Cells Divide New Mathematical Model Unravels the Mechanics of Microbe Reproduction

In a process that is shrouded in mystery, rod-shaped bacteria reproduce by splitting themselves in two. By applying advanced mathematics to laboratory data, a team led by Johns Hopkins researchers has … more
