Microbubbles and ultrasound open the blood-brain barrier to administer drugs

02/12/2016

The impassable blood-brain barrier prevents microorganisms from entering our brain, however it also blocks medicines that could help treat Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases. Now, researchers at the University of Columbia (USA) have succeeded in embedding these substances in tiny lipid bubbles.

For wearable electronic devices, NIST shows plastic holes are golden

29/11/2016

In science, sometimes the best discoveries come when you're exploring something else entirely. That's the case with recent findings from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where a research team has come up with a way to build safe, nontoxic gold wires onto flexible, thin plastic film.

New LEDs may offer better way to clean water in remote areas

25/11/2016

For the first time, researchers have created light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on lightweight flexible metal foil. Engineers at The Ohio State University are developing the foil based LEDs for portable ultraviolet (UV) lights that soldiers and others can use to purify drinking water and sterilize medical equipment.
