A non-invasive and non-antibiotic technology has been developed by a research team at the University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) under the direction of Professor Kelvin Yeung Wai-kwok from the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, School of Clinical Medicine, LKS Faculty of Medicine, to efficiently minimize methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in bony tissue.
The final step for many people with eye diseases to regain good vision could involve a corneal transplant. Over 184,000 corneal transplant procedures are carried out annually worldwide, with over 80,000 taking place in the United States.
An international group of researchers is designing an inkable nanomaterial that they claim could one day turn into a spray-on electronic component for lightweight, ultra-thin, and flexible devices and displays.
The human body is made up of thousands of tiny lymphatic vessels that ferry white blood cells and proteins around the body, like a superhighway of the immune system.
A new process that lets scientists chemically cut apart and stitch together nanoscopic layers of two-dimensional materials - like a tailor altering a suit - could be just the tool for designing the technology of a sustainable energy future.
2D monolayer nanosheets composed of layered perovskite come with several attractive properties. But, it has been challenging to build them with tunable bandgaps in the visible region with no addition of oxygen defects.
PI’s new air-bearing-based high-speed automated photonics alignment system provides maintenance-free, 24/7 performance, and high throughput.
Auburn, MA – PI, a leading provider of precision motion contr...
Light-driven chemical reactions have usually been conducted with large amounts of solvents that are often toxic.
What is a peptide, and how is it different than a protein? Just like a protein, a peptide also has a chain of natural amino acids, but it is much shorter, say 10-30 units, compared to those in proteins, which could be hundreds and thousands of units long.
The DNA of prokaryotes — single-cell organisms, for example bacteria — is known to contain sequences that are derived from DNA fragments of viruses that infected the prokaryote earlier. These sequences,...
