With funding from the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), researchers at the University of Washington have created a new smartphone app that can detect fluid behind the eardrum by simply using a piece of paper
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.
Using graphics processing chips designed for gaming applications and software that runs on ordinary web browsers, researchers have moved this modeling of the deadly spiral wave heart arrhythmias to less costly computers -- even high-end smartphones
Purdue University engineers have built a tiny, flexible sensor that is faster and more precise than past attempts at tracking neurotransmitter spikes of glutamate, a chemical known to cause migraines after spinal cord injuries
A new product, developed at the University of California, Riverside, could make access to detection technology a viable and inexpensive reality for these areas
New, fast MRI and computed tomography scanning techniques allow researchers to study live wrist bones in motion for the first time
Chemistry team creates synthetic versions of proteins with improved properties
In this week's episode, we learn about developable mechanisms that reside in curved surfaces of structures; explore wrist bone motion using 3D technology; and, finally, examine Adelie penguins' past and future. Check it out!
Cynthia Bradham studies the larvae of the sea urchin Lytechinus variegatus to figure out how these specimens could improving science's understanding of a wide range of issues related to human development, including cancer, birth defects, regenerative medicine and the growth of new organs
Fabric fab for rehab, cooking up eruptions, down to the wire for virus testing and why researchers want the blues
Bioengineers have developed a 3D bioprinting technique that works with natural materials and is easy to use, allowing researchers of varying levels of technical expertise to create lifelike tissues, such as blood vessels and a vascularized gut
Multidisciplinary team tackles challenges to make sweat as important as blood for health monitoring
Bloody-good sweat, changing climate/changing sex, sauce that delays frost and fab fossil find
A team of scientists from the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University have made a fundamental biological discovery that explains the structure of the nuclear envelope
A Big-Data analysis of patient records at Vanderbilt University has found a link specifically between Celebrex and heart valve calcification
National Science Foundation-funded researchers at Northwestern University have developed a 3D imaging tool that gives researchers a rare glimpse at the more than 40 billion, tiny, hair-like vessels called capillaries
Do the math for bedbugs, frog-skin lifesavers, cuddles for ICU babies and recipe against disaster
In this week's episode, we explore 3D technology to look inside capillaries; learn about a new species of dinosaur with a heart-shaped tail; and, finally, we examine a new kind of thinking cap for online learning
A new design for insulin that's easy to swallow, deep-sea surprise game changer for climate, catching reefs on the flip side and the physics of how bees chill.
Vikram Iyer, doctoral student in the University of Washington's Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, demonstrates 3D printed devices that can track and store information about their use without using batteries or electronics
Researchers develop modular robots that can autonomously adapt to changing environments
