Nanoparticles Help Detect and Treat Diabetes

Nanoparticles Help Detect and Treat Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition which has rapidly become a major health issue in today's society. Data from the World Health Organization (WHO) suggest that diabetes will become the 7th most common cause of death by 2030. To try and combat this, researchers from Stanford University have developed a new microchip incorporating nanotechnology to help detect type-1 diabetes outside of traditional hospital based tests.

Predicting Concussions in Contact Sports using Nanotechnology

Predicting Concussions in Contact Sports using Nanotechnology

Serious injuries have always been an inherent risk of contact sports. Increased pressure from governing bodies, fans and ultimately the players, has forced teams to make player health a priority. One particular area which has come under close examination in recent years is reducing the risk of concussions caused during heavy impacts. Now, researchers from Brigham Young University (BYU) are using nanotechnology to help prevent long term damage caused by concussions. [More]
