In a paper to be published in the September/December 2019 issue of TECHNOLOGY, a team of researchers from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago has developed a novel microfluidic device for measuring in real-time the cholesterol secreted from liver tissue-chip containing human hepatocytes. Their innovation lies not merely in the […]Continue Reading ...
A new University of Guelph study has revealed teenagers and young adults who sit down for family dinners – regardless of how well the family unit manages daily routines, communicates and connects emotionally – are more likely to have healthier eating habits than if they graze or fend for themselves at suppertime. “Gathering around the […]Continue Reading ...
An interview with Ramya Prabakaran & Melody Chang from GenScript, discussing the major challenges for researchers carrying out western blotting, and how GenScript’s automated systems are making the technique less time-consuming and more reliable.

With a little help from HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” University of California, Irvine neurobiologists have uncovered a key component of how the human brain marks time. Using high-powered functional MRI on college students watching the popular TV show, they were able to capture the processes by which the brain stores information related to when events […]Continue Reading ...
Last year, as a second-year medical student, I wrote a December holiday gift guide called “A med student’s Christmas wish list”. It included “the world’s softest pillow” (a sign that I needed more sleep), home-cooked meals (reminiscent of how homesick I was with my last batch of pre-clinical final exams pending), and more time (I […]Continue Reading ...
Bottom Line: Patients from the poorest neighborhoods who had cardiac arrest had longer total ambulance times than those from the wealthiest neighborhoods. Why The Research Is Interesting: Emergency medical services (EMS) provide critical care before patients reach the hospital and differences in ambulance times may contribute to disparities in patient outcomes. What and When: National […]Continue Reading ...

As names are called and sides are taken in the debate there are much […]Continue Reading ...
In physical, biological and technological systems, the time that a system’s components take to influence each other can affect the transition to synchronization, an important finding that improves understanding of how these systems function, according to a study led by Georgia State University. The researchers developed analytical formulas that helped them arrive at these conclusions. […]Continue Reading ...
Modern technology has helped medical professionals do robot-assisted surgeries and sequence whole genomes, but hospital software still can’t handle daylight saving time. One of the most popular electronic health records software systems used by hospitals, Epic Systems, can delete records or require cumbersome workarounds when clocks are set back for an hour, prompting many hospitals […]Continue Reading ...
