Nanoparticles and microparticles drug delivery to the liver

Liver disease is a significant health concern that affects millions of people worldwide. The liver plays a crucial role in metabolism, detoxification, and bile production, and liver disease can significantly impact liver function. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for managing liver disease, and nanoparticles and microparticles offer promising therapeutic approaches for early-stage liver disease.

Crosstalk in the Arachidonic Acid Cascade

Arachidonic acid (AA) undergoes enzymatic and non-enzymatic oxidation to produce an array of lipid metabolites collectively known as eicosanoids. Many eicosanoids have central and diverse roles in tissue homeostasis, inflammation, platelet function, and smooth muscle contraction. Understanding the biological role of eicosanoids and finding ways to modify their formation and function has been the focus of intensive research for decades. Throughout these investigations, it has become clear that the AA cascade is a highly intertwined network of enzymes and metabolites with extensive crosstalk.

Empowering Women in STEM – Insights from Nobel Laureate and Global Initiatives.

With the current uprise of female Nobel laureates in the natural sciences and economics such as last year’s winners Anne L’Huillier (Physics), Katalin Karikó (Physiology or Medicine, awarded jointly with Drew Weissman) and Claudia Goldin (Economic Sciences) one might think that the research within these disciplines today is divided rather equal between the sexes. However, while this is the case within the field of bio sciences for some countries, where women sometimes even have achieved dominance, globally this is far from the truth and in the researcher fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (abbreviated STEM) only 30 % of researchers are women
