FAU bioengineer receives NIH grant for novel biodegradable stent for esophageal cancer
Using a special 3-D printing technique, researchers at FAU will develop the tissue-engineered stent for esophageal cancer using biodegradable elastomeric polymer materials that will make it sufficiently rigid yet flexible enough to expand and contract with the esophagus. This new stent, which will mechanically open the esophagus, also will release the anti-cancer drug paclitaxel to locally treat esophageal cancer.

Nano-photonics meets nano-mechanics
In a recent work published in Nature Communications, ICFO researchers Reserbat-Plantey, Schadler, and Gaudreau, led by ICREA Professors at ICFO F. H. L. Koppens and A. Bachtold and ICFO Professor D. Chang, have presented a novel type of hybrid system, consisting of an on-chip graphene NEMS suspended a few tens of nanometres above nitrogen-vacancy centres (NVCs), which are stable single-photon emitters embedded in nanodiamonds.

Scientists have shown how to make a low-cost yet high precision glass nanoengraving
In a joint study, scientists have developed a mechanism of laser deposition of patterns on glass with a resolution of 1000 times lower than the width of a human hair. This mechanism allows inexpensively and relatively easy to apply complex patterns to a glass surface, whereby obtaining a spatial resolution of less than 100 nanometers.

Team develops wireless, dissolvable sensors to monitor brain
A team of neurosurgeons and engineers has developed wireless brain sensors that monitor intracranial pressure and temperature and then are absorbed by the body, negating the need for surgery to remove the devices. Such implants, developed by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and engineers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, potentially could be used to monitor patients with traumatic brain injuries.

New particle can track chemo
Tracking the path of chemotherapy drugs in real time and at a cellular level could revolutionize cancer care and help doctors sort out why two patients might respond differently to the same treatment. Researchers at The Ohio State University have found a way to light up a common cancer drug so they can see where the chemo goes and how long it takes to get there.
