Experimental smart hearing aid tracks user’s brain waves

April 4, 2021

Scientists at Belgium’s KU Leuven University have designed a cochlear implant that successfully reads a user’s brain waves to allow deaf people to hear again. Measuring these brain waves – instead of detecting noises via external microphones – is more reflective of a person’s hearing, and is important for the development of “smart” hearing devices. […]

Novel assay by SMART more accurately profiles hyper-aggressive infection

March 30, 2021

A new label-free immune profiling assay has been developed by researchers from the Critical Analytics for Manufacturing  Personalized Medicine (CAMP), an interdisciplinary research group within the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), to better profile aggressive, rapidly changing host immune response in cases of infection, for example COVID-19. In cases of acute infection, the […]

Smart, self-healing hydrogels open far-reaching possibilities in medicine, engineering

March 6, 2012

UNIVERSITY of California, San Diego bioengineers have developed a self-healing hydrogel that binds in seconds, as easily as Velcro, and forms a bond strong enough to withstand repeated stretching. The material has numerous potential applications, including medical sutures, targeted drug delivery, industrial sealants and self-healing plastics, a team of UC San Diego Jacobs School of […]
