University Hospitals Case Medical Center is now offering a new, non-invasive test for coronary artery disease designed to help physicians develop the right treatment plan for each patient. Developed by HeartFlow Inc., FFRCT is the first and only non-invasive imaging technology specifically designed to offer insight on both the extent of the blockage, as well as whether it is impacting blood flow to the heart.
The American Physical Society applauds President's support of research and development in the State of the Union Address.
The study of flatworms aboard the space station has the potential to be rather robust in implications for regenerative medicine, an area of treatment for repairing or replacing human cells, tissues or organs on Earth to restore normal function.
The Medical Faculty of the University of Cologne is taking part in the InnoLife project funded by the European Institute for Innovation and Technology. The project brings together universities, research institutions and businesses to explore the aging of societies across the EU. It will run until 2022.
The Advances in Brain Sciences conference was jointly hosted by the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot and the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan.
The Peruvian Ministry of Education has adopted the 'Blue Planet' education module, developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
VTT Technical Centre of Finland has developed and utilized a mass production method based on printing technologies allowing the manufacturing of decorative, organic solar panels. Design freedom improves the range of applications of the panels on the surfaces of interior and exterior building spaces.
Empa and the University Hospital Zurich have joined forces to develop a sensor that gages the blood sugar through skin contact. And best of all: No blood samples are necessary, not even to calibrate the sensor. 'Glucolight' is initially to be used in premature babies to avoid hypoglycemia and subsequent brain damage.
A new compact transistor model was developed and the framework for realizing a faster design support process and product development for integrated circuits in the ultra-low voltage category was established. This new compact model, HiSIM-SOTB (Hiroshima University STARC IGFET Model Silicon-on-Thin BOX), was selected as an international industry standard during a meeting in Washington D.C., which was held by the Compact Modeling Coalition of the Silicon Integration Initiative.
Future Science Group has launched Future Science Open, the publisher's first fully open-access journal. Each month, Future Science Open will publish research in all areas of biotechnology and medicine, as well as topics in biological, life and physical sciences that are relevant to human health.
