BrainGate researchers demonstrated the first human use of a wireless transmitter capable of delivering high-bandwidth neural signals.
(Bio)Tech & IT
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 created polymers that replicate the structure of mucins, the molecules that give mucus its unique antimicrobial properties.
Scientists have designed a portable 3D imaging device which will improve the treatment and diagnosis of cancer.
Researchers have demonstrated MRI compatibility in their soft electrode arrays – a crucial step in translation to the clinic.
Researchers are analysing the use of context-sensitive data glasses in everyday clinical practice in cooperation with tooz technologies.
Researchers have shown that lab-created heart valves implanted in young lambs for a year were capable of growth within the recipient.
Researchers have developed a structurally representative liver-on-a-chip model which mimics the full progression sequence of NAFLD.
Researchers have developed system for smart speakers to monitor both regular and irregular heartbeats without physical contact.
In 2032, a man lies critically injured on a remote road following a car accident. His life is in the balance, but data visualization, remote robotics, biofabrication and virtual care will combine to give him the best possible chance of survival.
Researchers have developed an injectable hydrogel that could help repair and prevent further damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack.
New hydrogel-based materials that can change shape in response to psychological stimuli, such as water, could be the next generation of materials used to bioengineer tissues and organs.
Sharing information about the expected effect of a health app before its use and providing positive feedback regarding its effectiveness after its use have the potential to strengthen the placebo effect.
Researchers have now developed and optimised a process for the isolation and purification of magnetic nanoparticles from bacterial cells.
