Is antibiotic resistance signalling the end for modern treatments of udder infections in the dairy industry? Not so fast, according to researchers who are developing breakthrough technology that’s effective against all tested bacteria.
Is there chemo- and surgery-free cancer treatment in our future? A team of researchers investigates.
A new computer-aided wizard will facilitate the design and synthesis of DNA constructs with speed and efficiency.
A team of researchers have proposed a new test that rapidly examines dogs for exposure to a parasite transmitted by sand flies. The test could be used in monitoring the effectiveness of sand fly control efforts.
Effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment of chronic lung diseases in disadvantaged areas? An international team of scientists shows us how to do it.
Researchers have found that the visually impaired use temporal information to detect the location of sounds in their environment.
An affordable, multifunctional printing device rests content in Braille or tactile format at the fingertips of the visually impaired.
Researchers conduct clinical trials and launch new non-invasive treatment programme for innovative Parkinson’s drug.
Website offers multiple new products and tools to study diseases spread by various insects and ticks.
Scientists have found a new method for analysing how active agents affect a specific protein essential for cell survival. Their research could help develop drugs with fewer side effects in a rapid manner.
Researchers show that the brain can reprogram itself to control prosthetic substitutes as it does one’s own body parts. The more one-handed people use a prosthesis in everyday life, the more strongly their brain responds to it.
What happens when industry and academia join forces for the good of science? They launch an open access website that helps researchers to discover new medical treatments.
Researchers are making great strides towards early Parkinson’s detection with a new mobile app.
Cases of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and dementia in the senior population are often the result of lifestyle-related risk factors. This offers opportunities for prevention – a call to which one EU-funded project is responding with an interactive online platform.
Companion robots will improve the lives of dementia sufferers and support their caregivers, thanks to an EU-backed project.
Open-source and collaborative approaches for medical device design will help address patients’ needs and citizens’ views. Information sharing and peer-to-peer evaluations along the development pipeline will make the engineering design process more sustainable, resource efficient and safe.
Scientists across Europe are creating a large database of sudden cardiac arrest cases to improve direct patient care.
New research suggests that closing the gender gap in science could take several generations.
Scientists say they have discovered a new organ that could be the body’s biggest. It may even lead to new ways of treating a wide range of health issues, including cancer.
