To many, it is coming off as a far-fetched dream, but aerial technology company EHang, and Lung Biotechnology, a subsidiary of pharmaceutical company United Therapeutics, have announced a new collaboration consisting of a 15-year plan to produce and utilize 1,000 unmanned drones for the transportation of manufactured transplant organs.
Lately, a major step forward has been made in using CRISPR technology in neurosciences. Over the past few years, scientists have been using gene sequencing to uncover genes that are important in brain development and in neurological diseases. The next step is to figure out if disrupting these genes can cause any of these diseases.
One of the hottest trends in life sciences research for the past few years has been the development of subfields of study focused on specific, complex networks within biological systems. These subfields are quite recognizable due to the common suffix ‘-ome’, and there is now an exciting and extensive list of “omes” starting with arguably the grandfather of them all, the genome.
Meet Prof. Dr. Tatjana Avšič, the leading scientist behind the first proof of the association between Zika virus and microcephaly in the world.
Sterile, lab-raised green bottle fly larvae are used for maggot debridement therapy (MDT), most commonly for non-healing wounds, such as diabetic ulcers.
Pigeons are many things to many people – navigators, couriers, rats with wings – but the word “doctors” rarely comes to mind.
There is a lot of bad publicity around genetic engineering, especially when it comes to the genetic modification of plants and animals. Most opponents of genetic engineering claim that inserting foreign genes into other organism’s genome is unnatural and dangerous.
