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.
On this episode of The Pulse, a device that helps train the brain to turn sounds into images, detecting cancer by imaging the consumption of sugar, biomedical applications for a new hydrogel, and a nanofiber mesh that treats tumors with both thermotherapy and chemotherapy.
