Fighting cancer

Posted By on Thu, May 14, 2009 at 1:26 PM

Nanotechnology scientists from UALR and UAMS will hold a briefing on Monday to present a new discovery that they claim will help in the fight to cure cancer.  Researchers will talk about their findings, which were recently published in the Journal of Biomedical OpticsDrs. Alex Biris and Vladimir Zharov believe they can now detect, track and kill cancer cells with the use of carbon nanotubes.  Sorry, this is a little over my head, but it does sound promising.  The briefing will be Monday at 10 a.m.  You can watch a streaming webcast of the announcement hereInnovate Arkansas has more.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
