First child with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) receives CAR-T therapy on the NHS, treatment to be made available to adult patients.

There has been with two significant developments in the use of CAR-T therapies, marking a historic time for blood cancer treatments, as recent headlines announced that the first child with ALL had successfully received CAR-T therapy on the NHS. CAR-T therapies are a revolutionary treatment that take samples of immune cells from the patient and genetically modify

Neuroengineers able to translate brain signals directly into speech

In a first, neuroengineers from Columbia have created a system that translates thought into intelligible, recognizable speech. By monitoring someone’s brain activity, the ground-breaking technology can reconstruct the words a person hears with unprecedented clarity. This breakthrough, which harnesses the power of speech synthesizers and AI, could lead to new ways for computers to communicate

German researchers create artificial synapse from nanowire memristor

German scientists have built an artificial synapse from nanowires that is able to replicate functions of biological synapses. The component, which was developed by a team at Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen Universities, has the ability to save and process information and receive numerous signals in parallel, making it suited to bio-inspired “neuromorphic” processors in

First interactive model of human cell division

A research team from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory have created a protein map using 4D computer model that allows for real-time tracking of proteins during mitosis. The first interactive map of proteins that make our cells divide enables users to track exactly where and in which groups the proteins are that drive the division

New methodology of motor assessment for acquired brain injury devised by Scientists

Researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Hospital Instituto Guttman have developed a new methodology of motor assessment of patients with acquired brain injury that improves on current neurorehabilitation models. Due to the lack of objective assessment tools for patients with acquired brain injury, a team of researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in
