When a clot blocks a blood vessel in the heart, a heart attack is the unfortunate result. Frequently, surgery is required in order to remove that clot. Thanks to an experimental new drug-delivery system, however, that approach may become increasingly unnecessary.
New Bristlecone processor could deliver ‘quantum supremacy’ over traditional computing, researchers hope.
Biohybrid bot could one day deliver drugs or do surgery
The most commonly discussed gene editing method these days is CRISPR/Cas9. Here’s what you need to know about how it works.
High-tech cooling textile warms when worn inside out
Using principles similar to those deployed in large hydroelectric power plants, a team of Chinese researchers has developed a tiny nanogenerator that can potentially sit inside a vein and generate electricity from blood rushing through it.
The motorized molecules could one day be used to seek and destroy tumors
A fleet of micromotor bots, each measuring half the width of a human hair, have been used to heal stomach ulcers in mice, the first time such bots have been used in experiments in living organisms.
Imagine buzzing the skin over an internal wound with an electrical device and having it heal over just a few days – that’s the promise of new nanochip technology that can reprogram cells to replace tissue or even whole organs.
It seems like there’s a new graphene breakthrough coming out of the James Tour lab at Rice University almost every month. Now, researchers have managed to make graphene out of wood, by blasting a piece of pine with a laser beam.
