Scientists have developed a camera that can see through the human body.
Americans spend between one and four billion dollars a year treating hair loss. Now, four surgeons in the U.S. are testing a stem cell treatment in a non-surgical procedure. Overseas trials in Japan and Egypt are already showing some success.
A new study offers a deeper understanding of how hair grows, why it does not grow how it should, and what we can do about it.
Centuries ago we were writing on clay tablets. In this century we will write the stuff of life.
Scientists have built flexible batteries for use in wearable electronics and medical implants that can operate from inside your body, powered by liquids like saline solution and cell-culture. Both the efficiency and the output of the batteries out-performed lithium-ion.
A new device has been developed at The Ohio State University, which turns cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions. During testing, one touch completely repaired injured legs of mice over three weeks
Body organs such as kidneys, livers and hearts are incredibly complex tissues. Each is made up of many different cell types, plus other components that give the organs their structure and allow them to function as we need them to.
Scientists are trying to manufacture eggs and sperm in the laboratory. Will it end reproduction as we know it?

It was the very first mechanical operator, progenitor to steady-handed robo-surgeons like the DaVinci system. But in the near future, robots will no longer […]
