Scientists are exploring how to store and transport ready-to-use bioink cartridges to treat injuries on the International Space Station.
A long-lasting drug delivery system to treat HIV
This clever drug delivery platform could improve HIV patients’ adherence to treatment and help eradicate the virus.
Pathogen detection with nanotechnology
Researchers turn to nanotechnology to boost the detection of pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2.
Influenza vaccine turns the virus on its head
To create a flu vaccine that doesn’t require annual tweaking, researchers develop a nanovaccine that uses an inverted hemagglutinin protein.
Regenerating nerves with an mRNA therapy
Stimulating neuron growth using a new mRNA therapy, researchers hope to treat chronic pain caused by disease, injury, or chemotherapy.
Boosting immune memory for broader vaccines
With more research, there is a potential for vaccines to have both adaptive and trained immunity to fight different diseases.
Bleeding controlled with snake venom
Heavy bleeding could be stopped using a new formula based on proteins found in snake venom.
Neuromodulation enabled by light-sensitive nanoparticles
Brains of mice controlled using light-emitting nanoparticles in a proof-of-concept study to show wireless neuromodulation.
