The Pulse: Achieving Sight Through Sound
This episode features:
Researchers at the University of Bath are developing a device that trains the brain to turn sounds into images, which could be used as an alternative to invasive treatments for blind and partially-sighted people.
A new technique for detecting cancer by imaging the consumption of sugar with MRI has been unveiled by UCL scientists. The breakthrough could provide a safer and simpler alternative to standard radioactive techniques.
Scientists at The University of Akron are exploring new biomedical uses for a polymer-based product that is synthetic, flexible, mostly water, and almost as tough as rubber.
Researchers developed a new nanofiber mesh capable of simultaneously realizing thermotherapy and chemotherapy of tumors. Using this technology, the team succeeded in efficiently inducing natural death of epithelial cancer cells.
