DNA Biosensor for Early Stage Disease Detection

DNA Biosensor for Early Stage Disease Detection

Disease detection at an early stage is one of the biggest challenges biochemists and materials scientists are trying to meet. Researchers used nanotechnology in biomedical diagnostics - a process called nanodiagnostics - to create a new, ultrasensitive DNA biosensor. The new sensor could potentially detect DNA-based biomarkers for early diagnosis of cancer and genetic disorders, as well as monitor patient responses to therapies.

Thermoelectric energy harvesting: leaders and technologies change

Pyroelectric energy harvesting is a failure because suitable temperature changes are rarely encountered. We deal with it in one slide at the end. The opposite is true of thermoelectric energy harvesting because it relies on temperature differences.

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

Engineers are working on developing soft, flexible neural implants that can gently conform to the brain's contours and monitor activity over longer periods, without aggravating surrounding tissue. Such flexible electronics could be softer alternatives to existing metal-based electrodes designed to monitor brain activity, and may also be useful in brain implants that stimulate neural regions to ease symptoms of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and severe depression.
