Chemists at MIT have successfully formulated a technique to synthesize polymers that disintegrate more readily in the body and environment. Polymers created by a standard chemical reaction called ring-opening metathesis polymerisation (ROMP), although extremely useful, do not break down easily in natural environments. The research team at MIT has come up with a way to […]

Usually, psychiatric illnesses and neurodegenerative diseases are treated with drugs or implanted electrodes. However, in the future we might be able to control these diseases by controlling the brain itself. With a research led by Shaun Patel and Professor Charles M. Lieber from Harvard University, their team was able to design mesh electronics that would […]

Previously damaging your cornea meant that it was almost impossible to get your vision back, the only treatment being a cornea transplant from a donor who had died. The results of an operation on a Japanese woman by an ophthalmologist Kohji Nishida, however, is hope for many patients with cornea damage. Nishida from Osaka University, […]
