Trial to Test Spherical Nanotech Brain Cancer Drug

An early-stage clinical trial will soon begin testing spherically-shaped nanoscale particles to treat glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. . . . → Read More: Trial to Test Spherical Nanotech Brain Cancer Drug

Personalized Drug Delivery System Demonstrated

Biomedical engineers developed and demonstrated in lab animals a closed-loop system that monitors and controls delivery of drugs to meet an individual’s personalized needs. . . . → Read More: Personalized Drug Delivery System Demonstrated

Sound Waves, Nanotech Delivery Boost Cancer Drug

Focused sound waves aimed at nanoscale bubbles filled with a cancer drug, were shown in lab mice to improve delivery of the drug to a particularly hard-to-treat cancer. . . . → Read More: Sound Waves, Nanotech Delivery Boost Cancer Drug

Univ. Spin-Off Creating Baby Brain Development Food

A start-up enterprise spun-off from the Duke-NUS medical school in Singapore is licensing research for a new food product for mothers to help a baby’s cognitive development. . . . → Read More: Univ. Spin-Off Creating Baby Brain Development Food

Trial to Examine Immune System Workings

Unlike conventional clinical studies testing a particular treatment, this trial aims to explore in more detail the body’s interactions with a class of drugs, in this case vaccines. . . . → Read More: Trial to Examine Immune System Workings

Growing Engineered Algae Outdoors Shown Feasible, Safe

A test of cultivating genetically engineered algae in outdoor tanks shows the production technique is feasible and does not pose risks to native algae populations. . . . → Read More: Growing Engineered Algae Outdoors Shown Feasible, Safe

Synthetic Retina Developed with Natural Materials

A chemistry lab in the U.K. developed a synthetic retina made of natural materials resembling human tissue that in lab tests detects static, moving, and grey-scale images. . . . → Read More: Synthetic Retina Developed with Natural Materials
