Using an affordable, portable device that attaches to a smartphone, researchers hope to save lives in rural Africa Dongkyun “DK” Kang was in the shower a few years ago when inspiration struck, and he became interested in the idea of imaging human tissue in vivo, or on a living person, using a smartphone attached to […]Continue Reading ...
July 13, 2018 By some estimates, 18 million people die each year from sepsis triggered by endotoxins – fragments of the outer membranes of bacteria. A biochemical engineer at Missouri University of Science and Technology has patented a method of removing these harmful elements from water and also from pharmaceutical formulations. Her goal: improve drug […]Continue Reading ...
An interview conducted with Dr Igor Zlotnikov, conducted by Jake Wilkinson, MSc Why are you interested in the mechanical properties of biological materials? Biological materials exhibit superior mechanical properties relative to their weight when compared to the majority of all man-made materials. In addition to this, organisms can construct these materials using a very limited […]Continue Reading ...
The researchers requested a bunch of volunteers to make use of a using simulator, whilst hooked as much as an electrophysiological tracking machine, to measure electric process of their brains. For 5 days in a row, the volunteers finished two 20-minute using simulations alongside a boring stretch of heterosexual freeway at a relentless velocity, to […]Continue Reading ...
