New molecular probes to allow non-destructive analysis of bioengineered cartilage

(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) A new study describes novel probes that enable non-invasive, non-destructive, direct monitoring of the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in real-time during the formation of engineered cartilage to replace damaged or diseased tissue.

3D-printed underwater vortex sensor mimics whiskers of sea animal

(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) A new study has shown that a fully 3D-printed whisker sensor made of polyurethane, graphene, and copper tape can detect underwater vortexes with very high sensitivity.

Early results reported on e-health tool to prevent opioid overdose

(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) The new ORION e-health psychoeducational tool, designed to help opioid-dependent individuals prevent an overdose, can impart new knowledge and impact a person's intention to change opioid abuse behavior, but it did not improve overall self-efficacy in overdose prevention.

If We Learn to Engineer Animals to Be as Smart as Humans—Should We?

Advances in neural implants and genetic engineering suggest that in the not–too–distant future we may be able to boost human intelligence. If that’s true, could we—and should we—bring our animal cousins along for the ride? Human brain augmentation made headlines last year after several tech firms announced ambitious efforts to build neural implant technology. Duke […]
