The Snyder Lab at Stanford is working on an algorithm that uses medical data from wearable biosensors like smartwatches to detect when people get sick. Their research could completely change the way we diagnose and treat diseases.
A new whole-lung bioreactor system involving the maintenance and delivery of oxygen to the lungs was developed by Yale Professor of Biomedical Engineering Laura Niklason. This system looks to optimize the processes of growing lungs in bioreactors and enables the real-time monitoring of oxygen intake and cell proliferation in the lung.
A computer program, designed to teach users to differentiate between kinds of woodpeckers, attracted the attention of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency for its power to improve teaching technology. Assistant Professor Amin Karbasi has been awarded for his promising research.
Evolution applies to more than living organisms. Yale scientists Hannah Haynie and Claire Bowern investigate the evolution of color terms and its implication on linguistics.
The discovery of gravity waves on Venus sheds light on the mysteries of our closest neighbor in the solar system, with surprising implications for both Earth science and astronomy in general.
This recently discovered microprotein has the ability to remove excess genetic material in cells. Researchers are only beginning to explore its potential.
