Recent Development


A definitive business combination agreement has been reached between Gelesis, Inc., a biotherapeutics company developing biomimetic superabsorbent hydrogels to treat excess weight and metabolic disorders, and Capstar Special Purpose Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company sponsored by Capstar Partners, LLC affiliates and certain private funds managed by PIMCO. Gelesis hopes to revolutionize weight management with the successful beta launch of its first product, Plenity, which is developed using a unique biomimetic medicinal platform.


Researchers at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have created a system that uses computer vision techniques to analyze biomedical movies acquired by microscopy in order to characterize and describe the behavior of the cells shown in the images. These novel methods have been applied to measuring live tissues. As a result, the researchers observed that neutrophils immune cells exhibit several behaviors in the blood during inflammatory processes, one of which is linked to the development of cardiovascular disease and is induced by the Fgr protein.Intended Audience:
