In this week's episode, Jordan and Charlie chat about the importance of a pack, discover a new antibody that may combat urinary tract infections and chase down storms with Doppler on Wheels.
Medical Sciences advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, but they also help us prevent disease in the first place. Too numerous to name, the medical sciences continuously make miraculous breakthroughs that extend lifetimes and expand our ability to experience life.
Forensic science is an integral part of the American judicial process--essential to both prosecutions and defenses. However, the field has also come under scrutiny. A briefing on May 12 at the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the American Psychological Association, highlighted how the use of the scientific method can inform the field of forensics and ways to improve judicial system outcomes through evidence-based inquiry.
In Episode 12, Charlie and Jordan chat about 3-D bioprinting, plugging up leaky graphene and a new approach to learning for the Pre-k crowd called Connect4Learning.
DNA Scientist and Mentor Bruce Jackson, PhD, traces ancestry and solves crimes with the powerful tool of DNA.
Superabsorbent diaper compound may soup up brain cell imaging
In Episode 10, Charlie and Jordan take a peek at Yellowstone's plumbing, chat about a new malaria model for blood cells and discuss the darling material of the nanotech world, graphene.
In Episode 8, Charlie and Jordan chat about the many different species of gut microbes, explore how math is helping ovarian cancer research and investigate the smell coming from water pipes in West Virginia's Elk River area.
The UCLA Biomechatronics Lab develops a language of touch that can be "felt" by computers and humans alike
The wearer's vital signs and surrounding environment would be monitored by devices that run on body heat and motion
A marine mollusk with a coveted blood protein is shaping the way researchers treat cancer.
Endometrial cancer affects 48,000 women per year in the United States. For patients with tumors greater than two centimeters in diameter, the effected organ(s) and lymph nodes may be surgically removed. Yet post-surgery analysis shows that only 22 percent of patients had metastasis, meaning 78 percent of these surgeries may have been unnecessary. How can doctors predict which patients need surgery?
A team of engineers are using magnetic force to design new and improved instruments for minimally invasive surgery. The use of magnetic actuation allows them to create tools that are more flexible and more powerful than conventional designs, which place the instruments on the end of long sticks. The first device of this type that they have designed is an organ retractor that repositions organs like the liver when required for an operation. They are also applying this approach to create new laser and radio-frequency scalpels.
The growing database is helping researchers discover new insights and it could become a powerful tool for diagnosis
Engineers and scientists collaborate with industry to realize the potential of light waves in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and much more.
Neurologists find clusters of nerves that are responsible for how we identify the differences between faces.
NSF-funded small business Applied Biosensors has created sensors that continuously monitor multiple biomarkers. The core technology has implications for biomedical research, water quality management and metabolic monitoring, among others.
These flexible devices would monitor, treat chronic wounds and communicate progress wirelessly
