? Picking up the Sweat Scent??Newly discovered sulfur-containing scent molecules in sweat produced by a bacterial enzyme point to our smelly past and could lead to an odor-free future.
? Chip Chops Time off Drug Discovery Process??
A next-generation optical screening platform that is set to accelerate the drug discovery process and uses far less quantities of reagents has been developed by Cambridge company Genapta in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) after just eighteen months of development time.
? Implantable Chips??Silicon chips and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) that can be implanted in the human body will only be possible with a clearer understanding of the interactions between single-crystal silicon and human tissues and fluids, for example, formation of mineral apatite.
? I Can See Clearly Now??Patients could recover from cataract surgery a lot quicker thanks to the development of a new, adhesive hydrogel that can be painted over incisions in the eye and so avoid conventional nylon sutures.
