In just 7 hours, 18 minutes, US researchers went from collecting a blood sample to offering a disease diagnosis. This is the result of ultra-rapid DNA sequencing technology paired with massive cloud storage and computing.
Australian researchers developed: the world’s first metal-organic framework (MOF) antibody-drug delivery system that has the potential to fast-track potent new therapies for cancer, cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases.
The artificial tooth enamel (ATE) was produced using AIP-coated hydroxyapatite nanowires. This allowed the engineered structures to have an atomic, nanoscale, and microscale organization like natural enamel.
For the first time in the world, Israeli researchers have engineered 3D human spinal cord tissues and implanted them in lab model with long-term chronic paralysis.
A team of researchers have produced a novel molecule that could be used to allow hydrogen to be made from solar energy on demand—even when the Sun is not out.
The University of Maryland School of Medicine announced that its staff had completed the first transplant of a pig's heart into a human. The patient was too sick to qualify for the standard transplant list.
In a new world record, China's "artificial sun" project has sustained a nuclear fusion reaction for more than 17 min. Superheated plasma reached almost 70 million degrees C— that's roughly five times hotter than the sun.
The scientists, in collaboration with Singapore General Hospital, created VeCare, a bandage with a wearable sensor that can conduct real-time, point-of-care assessment of chronic wounds via an app.
A 30-year-old woman from the city of Esperanza, Argentina - the so-called Esperanza Patient - appears to be the second person whose immune system cleared the HIV-1 virus without antiretroviral therapy.
Homo bodoensis lived in Africa during the early Middle Pleistocene, around 500,000 years ago, and was the direct ancestor of the Homo sapiens lineage.
An inexpensive repurposed drug called fluvoxamine can save the lives of COVID-19 patients and cut hospital admissions by up to 30 percent.
A former science teacher who's been blind for 16 years became able to see letters, discern objects' edge thanks to a visual prosthesis that includes a camera and a brain implant.
The average temperature at the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station between April and September, a frigid minus - 61 Celsius and was the coldest on record, dating back to 1957.
There may have been as many as 100 sinkholes in and around the two communities. Some of the holes appeared in remote areas, while many others appeared within yards from people's homes or beneath homes.
