New 3D nanoprinting strategy opens door to revolution in medicine, robotics: UMD engineers demonstrate their approach by printing the smallest-known 3D microfluidic circuit element – Science Daily

Engineers at the University of Maryland (UMD) have created the first 3D-printed fluid circuit element so tiny that 10 could rest on the width of a human hair. The diode ensures fluids move in only a single direction — a critical feature for products like implantable devices that release therapies directly into the body. The… Read More »

‘Living medicine’ helps make toxic ammonia breakthrough – The Guardian

Genetics ‘Living medicine’ helps make toxic ammonia breakthrough Using genetically modified bugs to prolong life was ‘fanciful’ until recently, says scientist A “living medicine” made from genetically modified bugs has prolonged the lives of animals with severe metabolic disease in a landmark test of the treatment. Researchers created the medicine by making a common strain… Read More »
