Bio-Inspired Surgical Camera Highlights Cancer Tissue

A camera modeled on capabilities of a butterfly’s eye offers surgeons definitive images of tumor tissue for removal, as demonstrated in tests with lab animals and patients with breast cancer. . . . → Read More: Bio-Inspired Surgical Camera Highlights Cancer Tissue

Students Form Microsatellite Rocket Launch Company

Current and former Purdue University engineering students transformed their interest in rocketry into a new enterprise for launching small lower-cost satellites into low-earth orbit from high-altitude balloons. . . . → Read More: Students Form Microsatellite Rocket Launch Company

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

More Accurate Thyroid Cancer Screening Technology Advances

A European initiative is developing a laser-enhanced technology to better distinguish between cancerous and benign thyroid nodules, for catching thyroid cancer earlier as well as preventing unnecessary surgeries. . . . → Read More: More Accurate Thyroid Cancer Screening Technology Advances

Boron Radiation Therapy Company Forms with $40M Funding

A start-up enterprise, spun off from a fusion energy company, plans to develop radiation therapies for solid tumor cancers often considered difficult to treat with conventional methods. . . . → Read More: Boron Radiation Therapy Company Forms with $40M Funding

Nerve Stimulation Shown to Reduce Diabetes Symptoms

Electric stimulation of a key nerve pathway was shown in lab animals to restore insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance typically missing in people with type 2 diabetes. . . . → Read More: Nerve Stimulation Shown to Reduce Diabetes Symptoms

Continuous Flow Manufacturing In Space Station Test

Among the experiments carried to the International Space Station in mid-December is a test of continuous separations of one liquid from another, used in drug and chemical manufacturing. . . . → Read More: Continuous Flow Manufacturing In Space Station Test

FDA Clears Targeted Breast Cancer Radiation Treatment

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a device that sends high doses of radiation to cancerous breast tissue while sparing healthy tissue nearby. . . . → Read More: FDA Clears Targeted Breast Cancer Radiation Treatment

Super High-Resolution Photo Sensor Developed

Engineers at Dartmouth College developed a sensor that captures light signals at high speed and resolution down to the level of individual photons. . . . → Read More: Super High-Resolution Photo Sensor Developed

Reading Vital Signs with Radio Waves Designed

Engineers at Cornell University developed techniques for reading a person’s key health indicators with plastic tags and radio waves instead of the specialized devices used today. . . . → Read More: Reading Vital Signs with Radio Waves Designed
