System to image the human eye corrects for chromatic aberrations: Personalized method could help diagnose individual vision problems and enhance studies of color perception

Researchers report a new imaging system that cancels the chromatic optical aberrations present in a specific person’s eye, allowing for a more accurate assessment of vision and eye health. By taking pictures of the eye’s

Toy transformers and real-life whales inspire biohybrid robot: Heart tissue and 3D printing combine to build a microscopic motor

Drawing inspiration from biology and the toy shelf, researchers at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College and City University of Hong Kong have developed a swimming robot with a light-controlled cellular engine that can

Visualizing better cancer treatment: Researchers engineer a protein micelle that can be visualized by MRI as it delivers hemotherapeutics

A team of researchers from New York University has engineered nanoscale protein micelles capable of both delivering chemotherapeutic drugs and of being tracked by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The innovation falls into the category of

Absorbable antibiotic envelope can significantly cut cardiac device infections: Global trial of nearly 7,000 patients also demonstrates the envelope’s safety

A Cleveland Clinic-led research team has found that using an absorbable, antibiotic-eluting envelope when implanting cardiac devices like pacemakers and defibrillators can cut the rate of major infections by 40 percent. The research was presented

New cell subtypes classified in mouse brain

It’s been estimated that the human brain contains roughly 100 billion neurons, together completing countless tasks through countless connections. So how do we make sense of the roles each of these neurons play? As part

MRI cardiac stress test shows promise at identifying fatal heart disease: Predicting mortality is a key requirement for the technology to be more widely used

The use of MRI to determine heart function has been slow to catch on, but a study from Duke Health researchers shows that stress cardiac MRI not only diagnoses disease, but can also predict which
