BiomedicalMedical Technology in an Age of Robots
Transforming Biology in the Second Machine Age
Biomedical technology is transforming the way we heal and augment the human body. This is an exciting age of technological advances in the world of neuroscience and medical technology in general. This department tracks what is happening on the medical front.
Discovery Has Applications for Eco-Friendly Disposal, Data Security and Healthcare. Researchers from the University of Houston and China have reported a new type of electronic device that can be triggered to dissolve through exposure to water molecules in the atmosphere.
A new medical-diagnostic device made out of paper detects biomarkers and identifies diseases by performing electrochemical analyses – powered only by the user’s touch – and reads out the color-coded test results, making it easy for non-experts to...
Researchers from Erlangen and Bayreuth investigate the potential of spider silk protein for engineering artificial cardiac tissue.
University of Adelaide researchers have shown that it is possible for stroke patients to improve motor function using special training involving connecting brain signals with a computer.
University of Washington researchers are developing an app that could allow people to easily screen for pancreatic cancer and other diseases.
Hologram technology developed at UCLA could lead to improved diagnoses of chronic diseases in remote areas.
New technology could improve patient care, accelerate search for Alzheimer’s treatments.
New technology being developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo and the Sunnybrook Research Institute is using artificial intelligence (AI) to help detect melanoma skin cancer earlier.
When designing and characterizing new drugs, a key aspect is making sure the drug actually goes where it is intended to. But current tests for drug uptake monitor the process under unrealistic conditions and do not provide information on the amounts of drugs that...
Doctors are often deluged by signals from charts, test results, and other metrics to keep track of. It can be difficult to integrate and monitor all of these data for multiple patients while making real-time treatment decisions, especially when data is documented...
