Toxicity testing on the placenta and embryo
Drugs must be safe not just for the patients; in the case of pregnant patients, drugs must also be safe for the unborn children still in the womb. Therefore, at an early stage in the development of new medicines, candidate substances are tested in the Petri dish on embryonic stem cells from mouse cell lines.

Building a multifunctional pressure sensor with 3D printing technology
The treatment of many medical issues like abnormal gait and muscular disorders require an accurate sensing of applied pressure. In this regard, flexible pressure sensors that are simple, lightweight, and low-cost, have garnered considerable attention. These sensors are designed and manufactured through "additive manufacturing".

AI improves speech understanding of hearing aid users
In noisy environments, it is difficult for hearing aid or hearing implant users to understand their conversational partner because current audio processors still have difficulty focusing on specific sound sources. In a study, researchers from the Hearing Research Laboratory at the University of Bern and the Inselspital are now suggesting that artificial intelligence could solve this problem.

New electronic paper displays brilliant colors
Imagine sitting out in the sun, reading a digital screen as thin as paper, but seeing the same image quality as if you were indoors. Thanks to research from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, it could soon be reality. A new type of reflective screen - sometimes described as electronic paper - offers optimal colour display, while using ambient light to keep energy consumption to a minimum.

New AI tech for early detection of prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is the most diagnosed cancer and a leading cause of death by cancer in Australian men. Early detection is key to successful treatment but men often dodge the doctor, avoiding diagnosis tests until it's too late. Now an artificial intelligence (AI) program developed at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia could catch the disease earlier.

Super-resolution brain imaging
Light can bend around the corners of obstacles found along its path. Because of this phenomenon, called diffraction, it is impossible to focus light onto a spot that is smaller than half its wavelength. The highest resolution one can theoretically achieve using an optical microscope is approximately 250 nm. Unfortunately, this resolution is not enough for observing structures found in neurons.
