MicroCHIPS develops contraceptive implant
Demo of mind-controlled exoskeleton planned for World Cup
Pills of the future: Scientists develop way to successfully give nanoparticle therapeutics orally
Drugs delivered by nanoparticles hold promise for targeted treatment of many diseases, including cancer. However, the particles have to be injected into patients, which has limited their usefulness so far.
Keeping atherosclerosis in-check with novel targeted inflammation-resolving nanomedicines
Nanometer-sized "drones" that deliver a special type of healing molecule to fat deposits in arteries could become a new way to prevent heart attacks caused by atherosclerosis, according to a study in pre-clinical models by ...
Polymer coating allows nanoparticles to diffuse through the brain
UCLA researcher highlights advances in nanotechnology's fight against cancer
(Phys.org) —As cancer maintains its standing as the second leading cause of death in the U.S., researchers have continued their quest for safer and more effective treatments. Among the most promising advances has been the ...
Advancing medicine, layer by layer
Personalized cancer treatments and better bone implants could grow from techniques demonstrated by graduate students Stephen W. Morton and Nisarg J. Shah, who are both working in chemical engineering professor Paula Hammond's ...
An injectable polymer could keep soldiers, trauma patients from bleeding to death
Most military battlefield casualties die before reaching a surgical hospital. Of those soldiers who might potentially survive, most die from uncontrolled bleeding.
The science of collaboration
It's a long, expensive, risky road to turn a scientific breakthrough into a treatment that can help patients. Fewer organizations are trying to tackle the challenges alone, says a new paper from MIT researchers published ...
