Though technically advanced, modern cardiac monitoring, pacing, and defibrillating devices obtain a pretty simple picture of the heart’s electrical activity. To truly map out the electrophysiology of the heart you’d need to wrap it in a mesh of electrodes that… Read more →
In a north London hospital, scientists are growing noses, ears and blood vessels in a bold attempt to make body parts in the laboratory.
It’s far from the only lab in the world that is pursuing the futuristic idea of… Read more →
Cell electrospinning is an unrivalled technology for building 3D structures that mimic native tissue.
Functional synthetic tissues are used for repair, replacement and rejuvenation of damaged or ageing tissues and organs. Historically, scaffolds have been used as substrates on which cells are seeded… Read more »
Interactive medical devices, including those for monitoring vital signs and treatment administration, are essential in modern health care. Such instruments have transformed clinical practice and the patient experience. For example, programmable infusion devices (see Figure 1) can deliver drugs and… Read more »
Despite recent advances in vascular biology, the mechanisms underpinning vascular development remain poorly understood. It is therefore crucial to gain further insight into the mechanisms governing the formation of complex vascular networks and their response to external stimuli. The translation… Read more »
Everything is affected by the digital revolution. The opportunities for improving healthcare could be extraordinary. Interdisciplinary research is key to this. The UCL Festival for Digital Health will connect UCL’s world-class research in computer science, engineering, medicine and health service… Read more »
