Clarifying how lithium ions ferry around in rechargeable batteries

(Institute for Basic Science) IBS scientists observe the real-time ultrafast bonding of lithium ions with the solvents, in the same process that happens during charging and discharging of lithium batteries, and conclude that a new theory is needed.

New portal to unveil the dark sector of the Universe

(Institute for Basic Science) IBS scientists theorize a new portal to peek into the dark world.

First CRISPR single-nucleotide edited transgenic mice

(Institute for Basic Science) It is technically challenging to replace a single nucleotide with the current gene editing tool, CRISPR-Cas9. Scientists at the Center for Genome Engineering, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) have used a variation of the popular gene editing technique CRISPR-Cas9 to produce mice with a single nucleotide difference.

MRI Contrast Agent That Turns On at Sites of Disease

2 months agoIndustries / Medical : medGadget

At the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea, researchers have developed a new type of MRI contrast agent that only lights up when near a target. It consists of two components, an “enhancer” which is the actual contrast agent that lights up and a “quencher” that controls the activation of the enhancer. Show More Summary

A new platform to study graphene's electronic properties

(Institute for Basic Science) IBS scientists model the electronic structure of graphene.

Scientists devise a new platform to overcome the limits of MRI contrast agents

A research team led by CHEON Jinwoo at the Center for Nanomedicine, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), developed the Nano MRI Lamp: A new technology platform that tunes the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signals "ON" only in the presence of the targeted disease. Published in Nature Materials, this study can overcome the limitations of existing MRI contrast agents.

Smarter MRI Diagnosis with Nano MRI Lamp

(Institute for Basic Science) IBS scientists devise a new platform to overcome the limits of MRI contrast agents.
