Microfluidic device rapidly delivers mRNA nanoparticles

Microfluidic device rapidly delivers mRNA nanoparticles

With a ‘liquid assembly line,’ researchers produce mRNA-delivering-nanoparticles a hundred times faster than standard microfluidic technologies.

AI predicts unknown links between viruses and mammals

AI predicts unknown links between viruses and mammals

A new study could help scientists mitigate the future spread of zoonotic and livestock diseases caused by existing viruses.

Deep learning predicts viral infections

Deep learning predicts viral infections

Using fluoresence images from live cells, researchers have trained an artificial neural network to reliably recognize cells that are infected by adenoviruses or herpes viruses.

Graphene used to detect COVID-19 quickly

Graphene used to detect COVID-19 quickly

Researchers have used graphene to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in laboratory experiments. It could be a breakthrough in coronavirus detection, with potential applications in the fight against COVID-19 and its variants.

Graphene ‘camera’ captures images of beating heart

Graphene ‘camera’ captures images of beating heart

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.

AI predicts how patients with viral infections will fare

AI predicts how patients with viral infections will fare

Researchers used an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to sift through terabytes of gene expression data to look for shared patterns in patients with past pandemic viral infections, including SARS, MERS and swine flu.
