Jobs : Science Jobs of the Week. Cancer immunology and PD 1 pathway. Antitumor Immune Response. Up Div Image Some tumor cells can evade the body’s immune response, which may result in disease progression1,2 One function of the body's immune response is to detect and destroy tumor cells through activated T cells and other mechanisms; tumor cells express multiple antigens that are not expressed in normal tissue.1–3 Tumor cell proliferation can be regulated through an antitumor immune response1,3,4 However, some tumor cells are able to evade an immune response.

Antitumor Immune Response

One mechanism tumors may employ involves activating certain immune checkpoints, which function at different phases in the immune response to regulate T-cell activity.1,3. AppliedImmunologyPFM2. Applied Immunology Precision for Medicine pr. IBM Research - Separating bioparticles at the nanoscale fo… Accelerating early disease detection with nanobiotechnology - IBM Blog Research. Imagine this scenario: Annual physical examinations are supplemented by an affordable home diagnostic chip, allowing you to regularly monitor your baseline health with just a simple urine sample.

Though outwardly you appear to be in good health, the device reveals a fluctuation in your biomarker profile, indicating the possible emergence of early stage cancer development or presence of a virus. Diagnostic devices like a home pregnancy test have been around since the 1970s. It revolutionized a woman’s ability to find out if she was pregnant without having to wait for a doctor’s appointment to confirm her suspicions. Quantum Teleportation - IBM. Teleportation is the name given by science fiction writers to the feat of making an object or person disintegrate in one place while a perfect replica appears somewhere else.

Quantum Teleportation - IBM

How this is accomplished is usually not explained in detail, but the general idea seems to be that the original object is scanned in such a way as to extract all the information from it, then this information is transmitted to the receiving location and used to construct the replica, not necessarily from the actual material of the original, but perhaps from atoms of the same kinds, arranged in exactly the same pattern as the original. A teleportation machine would be like a fax machine, except that it would work on 3-dimensional objects as well as documents, it would produce an exact copy rather than an approximate facsimile, and it would destroy the original in the process of scanning it.

In 1993 an international group of six scientists, including IBM Fellow Charles H. C.H. Bennett, G. Experimental Articles D. Quantum teleportation. Quantum teleportation is the only form of teleportation that is currently a scientific reality and the only form of teleportation in which it is known that an absolutely perfect copy of the original is created.

Quantum teleportation, an outgrowth of quantum information science, enables the transfer of a quantum state to an arbitrarily distant location. However, the so-called "no-cloning theorem" stipulates that, in the process, the original quantum state is destroyed. Because the physics if quantum teleportation is somewhat esoteric it may be useful to outline it in familiar terms. Quantum entanglement. Identical twins, it's said, can sometimes sense when one of the pair is in danger, even if they're oceans apart.

Tales of telepathy abound. Scientists cast a skeptical eye over such claims, largely because it isn't clear how these weird connections could possibly work. Yet they've had to come to terms with something that's no less strange in the world of physics: an instantaneous link between particles that remains strong, secure, and undiluted no matter how far apart the particles may be – even if they're on opposite sides of the universe. It's a link that Einstein went to his grave denying, yet its existence is now beyond dispute. This quantum equivalent of telepathy is demonstrated daily in laboratories around the world. The discovery of entanglement. "Spooky" Quantum Entanglement Reveals Invisible Objects. Like twins separated at birth who are later reunited, two laser beams revealed invisible objects in a display of their weird quantum connection, researchers reported on Wednesday.

The images, of tiny cats and a trident, are an advance for quantum optics, an emerging physics discipline built on surprising interactions among subatomic particles that Einstein famously called "spooky.

Software technologies — Metamodern. Nobel Prize for Computational Chemistry October 9, 2013 Michael Levitt, Martin Karplus, and Arieh Warshel have been awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for their contributions to computational methods for molecular simulation.

Software technologies — Metamodern

These are the methods that tell us how atomically precise covalent structures can serve as high-performance nanomachines, which will provide the basis for advanced high-throughput atomically precise manufacturing.
