If you want to learn about the numerical simulation of microfluidic devices, then tune into this webinar with Carl Meinhart of the University of California, Santa Barbara and Numerical Design, Inc.
Diabetic retinopathy destroys cells of the retina, leading to blindness. Existing treatments are painful and invasive, involving lasers and injections into the eyeball. A Caltech graduate student developed a glow-in-the-dark contact lens that interrupts the process that destroys cells of the retina.
Designing durable medical devices is challenging due to the rise of superbug threats causing more stringent disinfecting protocols throughout medical facilities.
Researchers from the University of Buffalo found a counter-intuitive way of improving the water-purification process: keeping things cool.
By using carbon-dipped paper to weaken light intensity, their new system increases efficiency and provides a more affordable water-treatment...
