Advances in healthcare are strongly driven by information technology and (bio)engineering. We reports on the development of next-gen diagnostic and biotech tools such as CRIPSR and other smart technologies that transform the delivery of care. We also cover the progress of digitalization and the creating of cutting-edge IT solutions – from using big data to predict therapy responses to using blockchain to make sharing of medical data secure.
Researchers have developed a ‘heater’ — about the size of a pill tablet — that regulates the temperature of biological samples through the different stages of diagnostic testing.
Thanks to smart software doctors will soon be able to detect early signs of esophageal cancer in patients with so-called Barrett’s esophagus.
Researchers at the University of Connecticut have developed a lensless microscope that allows an observer to enjoy an enormous field of view.
The first Parkinson's patient worldwide was treated with a new neurostimulator, which enables better, more personalized care for patients.
A game devised to make players better at spotting fake news and misinformation, has the intended effect in Sweden, Greece, Germany and Poland.
Researchers used a microfluidic devices to fabricate tiny strands of collagen called fibrils to help further his team’s research on the eye’s repair process.
Physicists from University of Augsburg have developed a "smart" coating that is particularly toxic when bacteria are present in its environment.
For the first time researchers successfully reproduced the electrical properties of biological neurons onto semiconductor chips.
Dementia screening could be as easy as using a smartphone app that listens to elderly people speak.
Though identifying data typically are removed from medical image files before they are shared for research, a study finds that this may not be enough to protect patient privacy.
