Many patients use their inhalers and insulin pens wrong. Researchers have developed a system to reduce those numbers for some types of medications.
Researchers have developed a structurally representative liver-on-a-chip model which mimics the full progression sequence of NAFLD.
Researchers have now developed and optimised a process for the isolation and purification of magnetic nanoparticles from bacterial cells.
World-first 3D printed oesophageal stents developed by the University of South Australia could revolutionize the delivery of chemotherapy drugs.
Scientists have developed an easy way to make millirobots by coating objects with a glue-like magnetic spray.
Researchers have invented a new type of surgical glue that can help join blood vessels and close wounds faster and may also serve as a platform to deliver pain relief drugs.
Researchers have developed a smart surface that can actively and repeatedly release and reabsorb substances by environmental stimuli.
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany have developed powerful nanopropellers that can be steered into the interior of cells to deliver gene therapy.
Researchers demonstrated a methodology that combines the bioprinting and imaging of glioblastoma cells in a way that more closely models what happens inside the human body.
Rutgers University have devised a way to integrate microneedles with backward facing barbs, so that microneedle arrays can stay in place as long as needed.
Researchers developed a bullet-shaped, synthetic miniature robot which is acoustically propelled forward – a speeding bullet, in the truest sense of the word.
Scientists have successfully used microneedle biosensors to accurately detect changes in antibiotic levels in the body, for the first time.
Medical implants of the future may feature reconfigurable electronic platforms that can morph in shape and size dynamically.
An engineer designed the first neurosurgical robotic system capable of performing bilateral stereotactic neurosurgery inside a MRI scanner.
A team of engineers has developed a prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds.
