Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York, have developed skin-inspired electronics to conform to the skin, allowing for long-term, high-performance, real-time wound monitoring in users.
Traditional surgery to reshape a nose or ear entails cutting, sometimes followed by long recovery times and scars. Now, researchers have developed a 'molecular surgery' process using tiny needles, electric current and 3D molds to quickly reshape living tissue with no incisions, scarring or recovery time. It shows promise as a noninvasive alternative to laser eye surgery. The researchers will present their results today at the American Chemical Society Spring 2019 National Meeting & Exposition.
When an act of terrorism or a vehicle or industrial accident ignites fuel, the resulting fire or explosion can be devastating. Today, scientists will describe how lengthy but microscopic chains of polymers could be added to fuel to significantly reduce the damage from these terrifying incidents. The researchers will present their results today at the American Chemical Society Spring 2019 National Meeting & Exposition.
Photoacoustic microscopy technique allows researchers to analyze metabolic characteristics of cancer cells with laser light and high-frequency ultrasonic sensing.
Investigators at the Medical University of South Carolina report in Microbiome that autoantibody production in HIV-positive patients who have undergone antiretroviral therapy is linked to levels of Staphylococcus products in their blood.
A team of scientists from Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University used 3D printing to create biocompatible structures on the basis of chitin obtained from crab shells. This method will help develop structures with given shapes for various biomedical tasks, including the replacement of damaged soft tissues in the human body.
Scientists at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics have developed an ultra-sensitive heat sensor that is flexible, transparent and printable. The results have potential for a wide range of applications -- from wound healing and electronic skin to smart buildings. The results have been published in Nature Communications.
Study finds the flow behaviour of sewage sludge can be used as a tool to gauge how quickly organic matter is dissolving at high temperatures, paving the way for online monitoring
The compound designed at Scripps Research, called Cugamycin, works by recognizing toxic RNA repeats and destroying the garbled gene transcript.
A prototype wearable device, tested in animal models, can continuously collect live cancer cells directly from a patient's blood. Developed by a team of engineers and doctors at the University of Michigan, it could help doctors diagnose and treat cancer more effectively.
