DGIST announced on Wednesday, February 20 that Professor Jae Eun Jang's team in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering developed a biosensor that expresses biomaterials' colors using nanostructure and applies a new image signal processing technique.
Using recent advances in machine learning, a Dartmouth research team has developed a deep neural network to classify different types of a common form of lung cancer on histopathology slides at an accuracy level shown to be on par with pathologists
Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) report a unipolar n-type transistor with a world-leading electron mobility performance of up to 7.16 cm2 V-1 s-1. This achievement heralds an exciting future for organic electronics, including the development of innovative flexible displays a...
A new way of growing cancer cells in the lab, developed at U of T Engineering, could speed up the search for therapeutics
Until now, carbon dioxide has been dumped in oceans or buried underground. Industry has been reluctant to implement carbon dioxide scrubbers in facilities due to cost and footprint.
A team of researchers from Denmark has solved one of the biggest challenges in making effective nanoelectronics based on graphene; the new results have just been published in Nature Nanotechnology
Takashi D. Y. Kozai's lab examines the use of the photoelectric effect on untethered implanted devices to mitigate the damage done by current implant technology
Cellular barcoding has been used to tag, track and pinpoint cells responsible for the spread of breast cancer
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Down syndrome is the most common birth defect, occurring once in every 700 births. However, traditional non-invasive prenatal tests for the condition are unreliable or carry risks for the mother and fetus. Now, researchers have developed a...
