Start-Up Developing Nanotech Bone Repairs

An enterprise formed earlier this year is licensing an engineered bone tissue repair technology that mixes ultrafine diamond particles with biocompatible polymers. . . . → Read More: Start-Up Developing Nanotech Bone Repairs

Room-Temperature Vaccine Storage Techniques Devised

Vaccines against viral diseases today need to be kept refrigerated to prevent spoilage, which raises costs and often prevents their widespread use in many developing regions. A team of materials scientists at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, or EPFL, proposes methods for storing vaccines without refrigeration for many days. . . . → Read More: Room-Temperature Vaccine Storage Techniques Devised

Biodegradable Capsule Designed for Hemophilia Drug

A chemical engineering group designed a capsule to deliver blood coagulating proteins for people with hemophilia B who now require injections or infusions. . . . → Read More: Biodegradable Capsule Designed for Hemophilia Drug
