Scientists have captured the real-time electrical activity of a beating heart, using a sheet of graphene to record an optical image of the faint electric fields generated by the rhythmic firing of the heart's muscle cells.
Engineers have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin.
Scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
An algorithm did better than experts radiologists at finding tiny brain hemorrhages in head scans — an advance that one day may help doctors treat patients with strokes.
Medical implants of the future may feature reconfigurable electronic platforms that can morph in shape and size dynamically.
Engineers have combined CRISPR with electronic transistors made from graphene to create a new hand-held device that can detect specific genetic mutations in a matter of minutes.
Scientists plan to edit their genomes to correct rare genetic mutations and slow or halt progression of their diseases.
