3D Printing Could Advance Biofilm Science

3D Printing Could Advance Biofilm Science

Combatting life-threatening bacterial infections, reducing slime that clogs pipes, preventing plaque buildup on teeth — all could one day benefit from the development of a new technology being developed. When bacteria and other microbes stick to surfaces and create slimy mats — called biofilm — they form complex communities that are often resistant to traditional disinfectants. Now, scientists are developing a tool for replicating the microbial mosaics so that innovative treatments can be studied.

CRISPR Cure for High Cholesterol Begins Trials

CRISPR Cure for High Cholesterol Begins Trials

The first patient has been dosed with VERVE-101, in its heart-1 clinical trial. VERVE-101 is a novel, investigational gene editing medicine designed to be a single-course treatment that permanently turns off the PCSK9 gene in the liver to reduce disease-driving low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.

Smart Earbud Will Measure How Astronauts Sleep

Smart Earbud Will Measure How Astronauts Sleep

Astronauts find it difficult to maintain a natural circadian rhythm and generally complain about their sleep. Researchers have developed a technology that can read the brain's electrical activity and map our sleep patterns. The technology, along with astronaut Andreas Mogensen, will travel to the International Space Station ISS to examine the differences between human sleep patterns on earth and in space.
