Organoid cystogenesis reveals a critical role of microenvironment in human polycystic kidney disease

Nature Materials. doi:10.1038/nmat4994 Authors: Nelly M. Cruz, Xuewen Song, Stefan M. Czerniecki, Ramila E. Gulieva, Angela J. Churchill, Yong Kyun Kim, Kosuke Winston, Linh M. Tran, Marco A. Diaz, Hongxia Fu, Laura S. Finn, York Pei, Jonathan Himmelfarb & Benjamin S. Freedman Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a life-threatening...

Mechanical confinement regulates cartilage matrix formation by chondrocytes

Nature Materials. doi:10.1038/nmat4993 Authors: Hong-pyo Lee, Luo Gu, David J. Mooney, Marc E. Levenston & Ovijit Chaudhuri

Exciton Hall effect in monolayer MoS2

Nature Materials. doi:10.1038/nmat4996 Authors: Masaru Onga, Yijin Zhang, Toshiya Ideue & Yoshihiro Iwasa The spontaneous Hall effect driven by the quantum Berry phase (which serves as an internal magnetic flux in momentum space) manifests the topological nature of quasiparticles and can be used to control the information flow,...

Organoid cystogenesis reveals a critical role of microenvironment in human polycystic kidney disease

Tissue mimics are of great interest in understanding diseases. Here, organoids were developed that resemble polycystic kidney disease cysts and it was demonstrated how material environment and adhesion can affect cystogenesis and disease progression.

Exciton Hall effect in monolayer MoS2

Polarization-dependent photoluminescent mapping reveals that excitons—composite particles made of electron–hole pairs bound by the Coulomb force—exhibit the Hall effect, which originates from the large exciton Berry curvature.

Mechanical confinement regulates cartilage matrix formation by chondrocytes

The mechanical properties of biomaterials affect cell growth through mechanotransduction signals. Here, hydrogels with fast stress relaxation were developed and showed increased cartilage matrix formation by cartilage cells compared to slow relaxation hydrogels.

Fast domain wall motion in the vicinity of the angular momentum compensation temperature of ferrimagnets

Fast field-driven antiferromagnetic spin dynamics is realized in ferrimagnetic Gd23Fe67.4Co9.6 thin films at the angular momentum compensation point. In particular, at this point, the field-driven domain wall mobility is found to be enhanced.

Evidence for magnetic Weyl fermions in a correlated metal

Experimental evidence for the realization of magnetic Weyl fermions in the strongly correlated metal Mn3Sn is reported.

Realizing the classical XY Hamiltonian in polariton simulators

Lattices of exciton-polariton condensates provide the base for a simulator that can be used to find the global minimum of the classical XY Hamiltonian.

Evidence for magnetic Weyl fermions in a correlated metal

Nature Materials. doi:10.1038/nmat4987 Authors: K. Kuroda, T. Tomita, M.-T. Suzuki, C. Bareille, A. A. Nugroho, P. Goswami, M. Ochi, M. Ikhlas, M. Nakayama, S. Akebi, R. Noguchi, R. Ishii, N.
