New probe can monitor shock from hemorrhages without drawing blood

It's inefficient to periodically draw blood from someone's neck to check oxygen levels, especially when that person is in an intensive care unit for massive blood loss. Yet the invasive procedure is currently the go-to method ...

Smarter window materials can control light and energy

Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal ...

Controlling genes with your thoughts

Researchers led by ETH Zurich professor Martin Fussenegger have constructed the first gene network that can be controlled by our thoughts. The inspiration for this development was a game that picks up brainwaves in order ...

Tuning light to kill deep cancer tumors

An international group of scientists led by Gang Han, PhD, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, has combined a new type of nanoparticle with an FDA-approved photodynamic therapy to effectively kill deep-set ...
