Bioenergy


Bioenergy use falls into two main categories: “traditional” and “modern”. Traditional use refers to the combustion of biomass in such forms as wood, animal waste, and traditional charcoal. Modern bioenergy technologies include liquid biofuels produced from bagasse and other plants; bio-refineries... Read More

Adaptive Therapy in Bio Robotics


Robotics interacting with Biology.  In adaptive therapy situations, think about being able to use a robotic device to move a limb in the usual “correct” motion.  The robot is interacting in a way to strengthen or train the person.  It can also be used to test.  Situations wh... Read More

Silicone as a plant protector


Silicone has not been previously considered an essential element for higher plants. However, mounting evidence shows that plants do absorb this element. Moreover, modern transcriptomics has revealed the crucial importance of this element in stressful conditions. Based on new research done in 201... Read More

Optical tomography


An optical tomography is a form of computed tomography that creates a digital volumetric model of an object by reconstructing images made from light transmitted and scattered through an object. Optical tomography is used mostly in medical imaging research. Optical tomography in the industry is us... Read More

Face Transplants


A face transplant is a process of using skin grafts to replace all or a part of the patient’s face with a donor’s face. The first partial face transplant was performed in Amiens, France, in 2005. The next successful transplant was performed five years later in Spain; this was also the first-ever... Read More

Smart Contact Lens


Glaucoma, the second-leading cause of blindness, develops when pressure builds inside the eye and damages retinal cells. Contact lenses developed at the University of California-Davis contain conductive wires that continuously monitor pressure and fluid flow within the eyes of at-risk people. Th... Read More

Smart Pill


California-based Proteus Biomedical has engineered sensors that track medication use by recording the exact time drugs are ingested. Sand-grain-size microchips emit high-frequency electrical currents that are logged by Band-Aid-like receivers on the skin. The receivers also monitor heart rate an... Read More

Nerve Regeneration


Nerve damage from neurodegenerative disease and spinal cord injury has largely been considered irreversible. Researchers have made significant progress in synthesizing rare enzymes that promote regeneration and growth of injured nerve cells. Neurotrophins are proteins that promote the developmen...

CRISPR


Clustered Regularly Interspersed Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) is a relatively new gene-editing system that has been hailed as a groundbreaking tool in medical research. Of its many uses, HIV research is one of them. Researchers can now keep up with the constant genetic mutations by actively... Read More

Targeted Cancer Therapies


Currently, established standard chemotherapies are toxic for healthy cells. Targeted cancer therapies are drugs that work either by interfering with the function of specific molecules or by only targeting known cancerous cells, in order to minimize damage to healthy cells. According to the Natio... Read More

3D visualization and augmented reality for surgery


Surgery is brutal on a human body and medical breakthroughs that make the surgical and healing process more efficient is always welcomed. Biotechnology has now made it possible for doctors to view an entire 3D image of the inside of a patient’s body through the use of MRI and CT scans. This allo... Read More

Human Genome Project


Often lauded as the one of greatest feat of exploration in human history, the Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international scientific research project coordinated by the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Energy. It was officially launched in 1990 with the goal of determ... Read More

Stem Cell Research


Stem cells can keep dividing infinitely and have the capacity to differentiate into different types of body cells during the early development of an organism. In a laboratory, researchers can program these stem cells to differentiate into specific types of cells. This is where the innovation of... Read More
