Non-invasive discrimination between lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) and lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) subtypes of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) could be very beneficial to the patients unfit for the inva... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online
It sounds like science fiction, but a neural implant could, many years from now, read and edit a person’s thoughts. Neural implants are already being used to treat disease, rehabilitate the body after injury, improve memory, communicate with prosthetic limbs, and more. The U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) … Continue reading How Do Neural Implants Work?
Disarming bacteria with mucus and phages Science Highlights patty.wiley Fri, 01/17/2020 - 13:53 Millions of people are treated with antibiotics each year for infections or as a preventative measure. Two teams of NIBIB-funded scientists have been working to find alternative solutions to treating bacterial infections, especially antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Biological organisms have certain useful attributes that synthetic robots do not, such as the abilities to heal, adapt to new situations, and reproduce. Yet molding biological tissues into robots or tools has been exceptionally difficult to do: Experimental techniques, such as altering a genome to make a microbe perform a specific task, are hard to control and not … Continue reading AI-Designed 'Living Robots' Crawl, Heal Themselves
Site-specific variations are challenges for pooling analyses in multi-center studies. This work aims to propose an inter-site harmonization method based on dual generative adversarial networks (GANs) for diffu... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online
