A little girl named Layla was treated with gene-edited immune cells in 2015. This helped eliminate all signs of leukemia that were out to kill her body. It was experimental, but by the end of 2017, many lives would have been saved with this revolutionary gene editing treatment.
A new study from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has found out that talking hands-free on a mobile phone while behind the wheel, though not considered illegal, is equally distracting as using a handheld mobile phones.
Google and small British startup Improbable are out to do the "impossible" -- make the entire world a virtual reality.
Limiting the effects of global warming has taken a toll on a number of industries around the world. It remains one of the challenges the world is facing today. So some scientists have a risky plan: geoengineering.
A new daring design has been developed for one of China's most iconic tourist attractions has raised some awe, but at the same time some eyebrows during its announcement. Designed by a French architect Martin Duplantier, a seemingly disappearing bridge will be situated in China's Wulingyuan region, one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites.
Nanorockets have been making waves since they have been discovered to be ideal vessels for delivering medicine. Developed by the bio-organic chemists at Radboud University, the soft nanosystems can self-assemble and spontaneously form functional units, allowing them to change and contain substances such as medicine.
It seems the gift of eyesight may be restored, even to the legally blind. A group of researchers have tried removing the jelly-like tissue behind the lens of the eye and replaced it with a saline solution, and it worked.
News on the potential of treatment after cryogenics have popped up after a teenager who recently passed away due to cancer signed up to be the one of the very first to undergo cryogenic freezing. However, other scientists have started exploring the issue of just how plausible it is to treat patients after they have been clinically frozen.
Scientists have devised a way to provide air conditioning by beaming heat from the Earth’s surface into outer space.
A new non-invasive brain-computer interface allows people to control a robotic arm using only their minds.
Scientists in China have appeared to have uncovered a biotechnology breakthrough. They have just successfully implanted 3D-bioprinted stem cell grafts in monkeys and were able to promote vascular tissue regeneration.
Reducing emissions, even eliminating them altogether, has been the name of the game in transportation technology in a bid to help combat climate change. There have been two main avenues researchers have followed: battery electric cars as released by Tesla and fuel-cell-powered automobiles by Toyota.
CRISPR/Cas9 or CRISPR has been a revolution method of gene editing that has been discovered quite recently by scientists. Its rather simple method has revolutionized the field of genetics for a lot of researchers.
The term "robotic" is often used to describe mechanical, rigid, or abrupt movements. Researchers from Cornell University have found a way to redefine this description by developing a soft robot that could feel its surroundings internally in a very similar way to humans.
