The Biomedical Technologies Work Package will focus on the development of smart implants with therapeutic functionality for specific clinical outcomes in disciplines such as neurology, ophthalmology and surgery.
Researchers believe that the trick to gaining access to the pernicious cellular masses is to give the nanoparticles a new look - and that dressing to impress will be able to get them past the tumor's biological bouncers.
Plants and trees soak up water in the soil by letting it vaporize through pores in the leaves. Scientists have now taken this principle to develop a sweat sensor through which the sweat itself flows at a steady rate and is analyzed.
The team of computer scientists and electrical engineers has detailed one of the first complete systems to encode, store and retrieve digital data using DNA molecules, which can store information millions of times more compactly than current archival technologies.
