Biosensors Printed Directly On Skin Bring Wearable Tech To Next Level

Scientists have developed an innovative technique to print biosensors, which can measure temperature, electrical heart signals and blood oxygen saturation, directly onto the skin at room temperature. This advance, which was developed by US and Chinese researchers and led by... Continue Reading →

Reviving cells after a heart attack

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) -- nanometer sized messengers that travel between cells to deliver cues and cargo -- are promising tools for the next generation of therapies for everything from autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases to cancer and tissue injury. EVs derived... Continue Reading →

Design of inorganic materials for brain-like computing

Ever wish your computer could think like you do or perhaps even understand you? That future may not be now, but it's one step closer, thanks to a Texas A&M University-led team of scientists and engineers and their recent discovery... Continue Reading →

What happens in the bodies of ALS patients?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an incurable disease of the central nervous system. In most cases, ALS is fatal within a short period following diagnosis. However, people sometimes live with the disease for decades, as did the astrophysicist Steven Hawking.... Continue Reading →

Engineered viruses could fight drug resistance

In the battle against antibiotic resistance, many scientists have been trying to deploy naturally occurring viruses called bacteriophages that can infect and kill bacteria. Bacteriophages kill bacteria through different mechanisms than antibiotics, and they can target specific strains, making them... Continue Reading →
