Diagnosing infectious diseases at the point-of-care

31/03/2015 - A new "lab-on-a-disc" technology developed by an EU project research team can diagnose malaria and other febrile infectious diseases simultaneously in just an hour - allowing faster point-of-care treatment and precise drugs administration that could save thousands of lives. read more

Carbon nanotube fibers make superior links to brain

27/03/2015 - Carbon nanotube fibers invented at Rice University may provide the best way to communicate directly with the brain. The invention provides two-way communication with neurons. read more

New technique paints tissue samples with light

26/03/2015 - One infrared scan can give pathologists a window into the structures and molecules inside tissues and cells, enabling fast and broad diagnostic assessments, thanks to an imaging technique developed by University of Illinois researchers and clinical partners. read more

An improved method for coating gold nanorods

19/03/2015 - Researchers have fine-tuned a technique for coating gold nanorods with silica shells, allowing engineers to create large quantities of the nanorods and giving them more control over the thickness of the shell. Gold nanorods are being investigated for use in a wide variety of biomedical applications. read more

Research on injectable oriented hydrogels for spinal cord repair

18/03/2015 - The research objective of Dr.-Ing. Laura De Laporte, junior group leader at DWI – Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials in Aachen, is to develop a minimally invasive therapy for spinal cord injury. read more

Scientists discover how geckos stay clean

17/03/2015 - A research team including James Cook University scientists has discovered how geckos manage to stay clean, even in dusty deserts. read more

Human hearts on a chip aids drug screening

13/03/2015 - A research team led by bioengineering professor Kevin Healy from the University of California, Berkeley, is presenting a network of pulsating cardiac muscle cells housed in an inch-long silicone device that effectively models human heart tissue, and they have demonstrated the viability of this system as a drug-screening tool by testing it with cardiovascular medications. read more

Cancer: Magnetic material attracts attention

10/03/2015 - An extraordinary self-regulating heating effect that can be achieved in a particular type of magnetic material may open the doors to a new strategy for hyperthermia cancer treatment. read more

Medical nanoparticles: Local treatment of lung cancer

06/03/2015 - Nanoparticles are extremely small particles that can be modified for a variety of uses in the medical field. For example, nanoparticles can be engineered to be able to transport medicines specifically to the disease site while not interfering with healthy body parts. read more

Giant virus revealed in 3-D using X-ray laser

05/03/2015 - For the first time, researchers have produced a 3-D image revealing part of the inner structure of an intact, infectious virus, using a unique X-ray laser at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The virus, called Mimivirus, is in a curious class of “giant viruses” discovered just over a decade ago. read more
