Regenerative Medicine: Researchers Claim to Transform Mature Cells into Stem Cells

Stem cells are the foundation of each specialized cell in our body. They are the base in the formation of each tissue and organ. Professor G.V. Shivashankar, who teaches at the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology (IFOM) and National University of Singapore (NUS) in Italy, has found out in his recent research that the mature cells can be conditioned into re-deployable stem cells without any help of generic modifications. The

Gram-Positive Bacterial Infections Market Set for Rapid Growth and Trend, by 2020

Bacteria represents essential class of micro-organisms that play a crucial role in the development of infection of any disease to the human being and animal kingdom. Bacteria are divided into two types on the basis of gram staining test, namely; gram-positive bacteria and gram-negative bacteria. Gram-positive bacteria retain the gram stain and hence are observed as violet purple colored stains when observed under microscope. These are distinguished from gram-negative bacteria,

Migrations Caused by Climate Change Tracked Using Smartphone

With the help of the tracks of mobile phones, human displacement due to change in climate has been made possible to track using a new system developed by Spanish researchers. During the six months of the study conducted using this model then tested, it was found that 10% of the population in Colombia migrated at the time of a dreadful drought in the country in 2014. In the past, sudden

High-performance, Neoteric Hybrid Catalyst Splits Water to Produce Hydrogen

Holding the ability to split water for producing hydrogen that is fit for commercialization on a large scale, a low-cost hybrid catalyst has been reported by California Institute of Technology and University of Houston researchers. It is able to perform both the functions of producing oxygen and spurring a reaction to separate the hydrogen when splitting water. Made of dinickel phosphides and iron on nickel foam that is commercially available,

Device which Can Track Sound to it Source Efficiently Developed by Researchers

A device which can reflect the sound from the direction it came from rather than deflecting it at an angle has been developed by researchers from the North Carolina State University provide the device is called as retroreflector and it can reflect sound across an operating range 70° in either direction. This technology makes use of two engineered materials. The first layer focuses the sound waves which is in coming

NASA Addresses Public Grievances about Aircraft Noise, Flight-tests Technologies

Technologies that help to tellingly reduce noise heard by communities close to airports and generated by aircrafts were successfully demonstrated in a series of flight tests by NASA. At California’s Armstrong Flight Research Center, NASA concluded its Acoustic Research Measurement (ARM) flights in May. These flights tested technologies to address noise generated by an aircraft’s non-propulsive parts and also airframe noise during landing. In order to achieve a more than

Robots with an Ability to Scan and Grasp Specific Objects

Faster and more accurate way has been developed by roboticists so that robots are able to grasp objects quickly and precisely, including in changing and fluttered environments period this new development has the potential to enhance the usefulness of robots not only in domestic settings but also in industrial sector. Through the implementation of this new approach, robots are able to scan an environment quickly and map each pixel grasp

Drinkable Electronic Sensors could Help Track Cancer Cell Development

Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) researchers have proposed an unorthodox approach where patients could simply drink down scores of minuscule electronic sensors passing themselves off as bacteria to track illnesses. This could be as simple as letting patients drink a glass of water containing the biosensors, which will help track how diseased cells develop in real time. These biosensors can travel to diseased tissue after being ingested. Via telemetry,

A Drug Used to Cure Poisoning can Also Cure Deafness in Children Undergoing Chemotherapy, finds a New Trial

A trial has led to the conclusion that a medicine which is commonly used for the treatment of poisoning issues can also be extremely effective for reducing deafness in children who are undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. A paediatric oncologist at the University of Melbourne and Royal Children’s Hospital, Professor Michael Sullivan, has said that this trial focused on cisplatin, which is used for treating cancer in children, a potent chemotherapy.

These New Supercapacitors May Give Stiff Competition to Lithium Batteries

A supercapacitor with the highest energy density any other has been developed buy a theme of molecular Foundry users and stuff. The teams new design approach is such that these supercapacitor can be charged and discharged repeatedly. Much better than any other earlier version, these super capacitors as very stable and performance much better, it has a operating voltage window which is 3 times larger than the existing ones. The
