A team of researchers at the University of Chicago, have found a way to “grow” tiny scales that can be used for a variety of applications including fixing medical implants in vivo. Previous models used […]
When working with implantable medical devices, the key is a device that seamlessly integrates with the host tissues. In order to achieve this, there needs to be robust attachment of biological molecules to the devices […]
3D bioprinted skin is used in multiple applications including skin grafts, toxicology, and chemical testing. Traditional techniques creates a product that lacks the complexities of real skin such as pigmentation, pore size variation, and hair […]
Bioengineers at the Center for Cellular Construction at University of California, San Francisco have developed a method to enhance current 3D tissue engineering. The approach uses a precision technology called DNA-programmed assembly of cells or […]
One of the hangups of expanding optometry care to the developing world is cost. An MIT startup, PlenOptika, is hoping to change that with the QuickSee low cost autorefractor. This handheld medical device can take […]
For the millions who suffer from chronic sinusitis, there is a new medical device that could help improve post sinus surgery recovery and increase surgical success rates. The S.T.Stent is a removable stent that is […]
A team at Boston Children’s Hospital have developed an implantable robot that helps lengthen the esophagus in infants with esophageal atresia. The hope is to apply this technology to other tubular organs such as the […]
Researchers at Imperial College London have developed a method, combining 3D printing with cryogenics, to create 3D structures that mimic soft tissues. Read the full article at Imperial College London.
