During fieldwork, Dr. Isaac Bogoch assembled a microscope from an iPhone, an $8 ball lens, and some tape, to detect hookworms in 200 Tanzanian children. The invention gives hope for increased detection of the disease in rural Africa and around the world.
An ingenious, easy-to-use diagnostic device developed by Vanderbilt professor Dr. Rick Haselton could be a game-changer in the fight against malaria.
Professors Richard A. Flavell and Ruslan M. Medzhitov of the Yale Department of Immunobiology have been selected to receive the 2013 Vilcek Prize in Biomedical Science.
For over a century, the mouse has been used as a model for human disease, leading to countless insights into human health. Virtually all clinical treatments must first be validated in the mouse before human trials are considered. However, a
A team in the Yale Electrical Engineering Department has successfully developed a microscopic device that imitates ion channels, which are structures in biological membranes that control ion flow. This device helps us better understand biological ion channels and has the ability to both desalinate and generate electricity from seawater.
Connecting artificial limbs to the nervous system could allow the brain to control prostheses as smoothly as natural limbs.
Scientists and doctors are developing tiny robots that can find targets, deliver drugs, and monitor the body.
Dr. Jonathan M. Rothberg, the founder and CEO of Ion Torrent division of Life Technology, spearheaded technological advances in human genome sequencing as an entrepreneur and a scientist.
The Yale iGEM team has advanced to the iGEM World Championships with their project using naturally-competent bacteria to improve artificial selection methods.
