Cancer Device Created at Rutgers to See if Targeted Chemotherapy is Working

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Rutgers researchers have created a device that can determine whether targeted chemotherapy drugs are working on individual cancer patients. The portable device, which uses artificial intelligence and biosensors, is up to 95.9 percent accurate in counting live cancer cells when they pass through electrodes, according to a study in the journal Microsystems & Nanoengineering.

Limitation exposed in promising quantum computing material

University of Utah

Physicists have theorized that a new type of material, called a three-dimensional (3-D) topological insulator (TI), could be a candidate to create qubits for quantum computing due to its special properties. A study found that when the TI’s insulating layers are as thin as 16 quintuple atomic layers across, the top and bottom metallic surfaces begin to destroy their metallic properties.

Dogs, turtles, biology mix for Cornell College summer research

Cornell College

Professor of Biology Andy McCollum and his three student researchers received some help this summer from a team of turtle-finding dogs. This year marked the 16th year of McCollum’s research on the ornate box turtle, which is native in Iowa. It’s also a threatened species due to environmental changes, predators, and poaching.

Researchers wirelessly hack ‘boss’ gene, a step toward reprogramming the human genome

University at Buffalo

A new University at Buffalo-led study describes how researchers wirelessly controlled FGFR1 — a gene that plays a key role in how humans grow from embryos to adults — in lab-grown brain tissue. The ability to manipulate the gene, the study’s authors say, could lead to new cancer treatments, and ways to prevent and treat mental disorders such as schizophrenia.

Rehab with robots

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Rehabilitation devices that conform to the body provide more than support for feeble or rigid muscles. With embedded AI, these 'exoskeletons' communicate with muscles when the brain cannot.
