Clinical Practice

 

Engineers from Brigham Young University have developed a 'smartfoam' capable of detecting a sport-caused concussion in real time.

Researchers from the State University of New York at Binghamton have developed a non-invasive paper-based sensor patch, capable of measuring blood glucose levels for diabetic patients.

Researchers from the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom have developed a genetically engineered common molecule capable of being programmed to fight cancer, influenza and other diseases.

Researchers from the University of Houston have developed an artificial skin, capable of stretching over robotic hands and sense the difference between hot and cold. Findings are published in Science Advances.

Clinical trials often go unregistered or unpublished and have differences in the reporting of primary outcomes, according to a study published in JAMA.
