Huge changes in medicine and healthcare fueled by technology are heading our way.  

Injectable electronic brain implants

June 12th, 2015 at 4:56 pm » Comments Off

 U.S. and Chinese scientists have, for the first time, developed a method to inject microelectronic devices such as wires and transistors directly into the brain (or other body parts) to measure or stimulate neural activity.  

Lost memories reactivated by researchers with optogenetics

June 1st, 2015 at 7:50 pm » Comments Off

Researchers at MIT reveal, in a paper published last week in the journal Science, that they were able to reactivate memories that could not otherwise be retrieved, using a technology known as optogenetics.

Researchers from Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) and Vienna Medical University (MedUni Vienna) have developed artificial blood vessels made from a special elastomer material (thermoplastic polyurethanes) with excellent mechanical properties.  

Man-made DNA that can mimic killer diseases, injecting them into patients create immunity

April 18th, 2015 at 7:21 pm » Comments Off

Man-made artificial DNA strands that mimic deadly diseases such as the flu, Ebola, cancer, and HIV have recently been created by scientists.  Researchers are claiming that the treatments could be the key to defeating these killer diseases.  Human trials have already begun and results are with researchers saying the results are promising.  

Head transplant complications could be “worse than death”
