This ultrathin pressure sensor could attach to your fingertips

Researchers have developed an ultrathin pressure sensor that can be attached directly to the skin. It can measure how fingers interact with objects to produce...

Scientists 3D print biomedical parts with supersonic speed

Forget glue, screws, heat or other traditional bonding methods. A Cornell University-led collaboration has developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by...

Scientists 3D print first ever synthetic tongue surface

Scientists have created synthetic soft surfaces with tongue-like textures for the first time using 3D printing. This opens the new possibilities for testing oral processing...

Scientists discover dozens of new COVID-19 related genes

Researchers screened hundreds of millions of cells exposed to the COVID-19 and MERS viruses and identified dozens of genes that both enable the viruses...

Scientists turn yeast cells into drug factories

Stanford engineers have genetically reprogrammed the cellular machinery of yeast to create microscopic factories that convert sugars and amino acids into plant-based drugs. Since antiquity,...

Scientists create world’s first ultrasound biosensor

The ability to accurately monitor drug levels and biological molecules inside patients in real time has remained largely elusive. Most of the implantable monitors invented...

Scientists create new biodegradable adhesive

Most adhesives today are made of plastic, but BU chemists hope a new biodegradable alternative will provide a more environmentally friendly option. Boston University professor...
New gene editor could fix major shortcoming of current CRISPR tech

New gene editor could fix major shortcoming of current CRISPR tech

Scientists at Columbia have developed a gene-editing tool—using jumping genes—that inserts any DNA sequence into the genome without cutting, fixing a major shortcoming of...
Scientists develop a biosynthetic dual-core cell computer

Scientists develop a biosynthetic dual-core cell computer

In a new study, researchers have integrated two CRISPR-Cas9-based core processors into human cells and created a biosynthetic dual-core cell computer. The finding is a...
