Hydrogel, Solar Power Provide Simple Water Purification

An engineering lab demonstrates how polymer gels and ambient sunlight can provide a simple, inexpensive alternative to current complex and expensive technologies for desalinating or purifying drinking water. . . . → Read More: Hydrogel, Solar Power Provide Simple Water Purification

Nanotech Pain Drug Formulations Developed

A pharmaceutical researcher developed treatments for chronic pain, formulated as nanoscale droplets, that in tests with lab animals target the source of pain directly and use much smaller doses than current pain drugs. . . . → Read More: Nanotech Pain Drug Formulations Developed

Paper Art Form Boosts Bandage, Wearables Adhesion

An engineering lab adapted the traditional Japanese art form of kirigami to create a surface for bandages and wearable devices on knees and elbows that bend a great deal and thus are difficult to stay on. . . . → Read More: Paper Art Form Boosts Bandage, Wearables Adhesion

Patent Awarded for Nanoparticle Drug, Cannabis Delivery

A delivery technology for therapeutic compounds in nanoscale natural oil particles received a U.S. patent, which the company owning the technology says can be applied to drugs, nutritional supplements, and cannabis-based treatments. . . . → Read More: Patent Awarded for Nanoparticle Drug, Cannabis Delivery

Novartis Licenses Biomaterial for Cancer Immunotherapy

Drug maker Novartis is licensing from a lab at Harvard University a biocompatible material designed to provide delivery of treatments that invoke the immune system to fight cancer. . . . → Read More: Novartis Licenses Biomaterial for Cancer Immunotherapy

Peptide Hydrogel Boosts Cancer Immunotherapies

A team at Rice University in Houston developed an injectable gel material that in lab mice slows the release of cancer immunotherapy drugs, enhancing the treatments’ effectiveness and reducing the need for repeated doses. . . . → Read More: Peptide Hydrogel Boosts Cancer Immunotherapies

3-D Biomaterial Boosts Personal Cancer Immunotherapy

A Harvard University bioengineering lab developed an injectable material designed to load up with proteins from a patient’s own tumors to induce immune reactions that fight that person’s cancer. . . . → Read More: 3-D Biomaterial Boosts Personal Cancer Immunotherapy

3-D Printing Devised for Sensors in Soft Robotics

Engineering researchers developed techniques using three-dimensional printing that enables robotic devices made with soft materials, like those in health care, to sense more properties of objects they encounter. . . . → Read More: 3-D Printing Devised for Sensors in Soft Robotics

Highly Stretchable Sensors Devised for Wearable Devices

Engineers in Canada developed graphene sensors with a great deal of flexibility that can measure fine human movements and minute functions for wearable medical devices, and be made with an economical process. . . . → Read More: Highly Stretchable Sensors Devised for Wearable Devices
