Advances in healthcare are strongly driven by information technology and (bio)engineering. We report on the development of next-gen diagnostic and imaging tools, biotech such as CRIPSR and other smart technologies that transform the delivery of care. We also cover the progress of digitalization and the creating of cutting-edge IT solutions – from using big data to predict therapy responses to using blockchain to to make sharing of medical data secure.

Nerve-on-a-chip improves neuroprosthetics

Scientists have developed a miniaturized electronic platform for the stimulation and recording of peripheral nerve fibers-on-a-chip. By modulating and rapidly recording nerve activity with a high signal-to-noise ratio, the platform paves the way to using chips to improve neuroprosthetic designs. ... Continue reading
