Virtual reality technology is allowing multiple scientists to see inside a human cell at the same time, giving researchers a 3D tool to improve doctor interaction and help analyse how cancer drugs work.
Artificially intelligent computer algorithms have been found to equal human pathologists in detecting metastases of breast cancer in lymph nodes.
Australian epilepsy researchers have used a mobile, brain-inspired processor to bring personalised seizure prediction a step closer to a reality.
Seeking to move neuroscience research into the fast lane, researchers at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute have constructed and deployed a high-throughput system to study mouse behaviour and physiology at a much faster rate than that achieved via manual methods.
Supercomputer simulations have revealed the role of transport proteins called efflux pumps in creating drug resistance in bacteria — a breakthrough that could help improve drugs' effectiveness against life-threatening diseases and restore the efficacy of defunct antibiotics.
Spanish researchers have developed a new tool that enables clinico-genomic data to be easily shared among different institutions.
Cardiologists are collaborating on a groundbreaking study into cardiovascular care, using over 100 million healthcare records from more than 1000 hospitals.
An Australian developer and distributor of laboratory informatics software solutions, LTech, was recently asked to design a laboratory information management software for emerging labs to help them improve operational and cost efficiencies.
Available for Windows and Mac, the Imaris product line offers what is claimed to be the most powerful and versatile 3D and 4D imaging analysis software solution on the market for researchers in life sciences, medicine and related fields.
Electronic data capture (EDC) may be gaining traction in the clinical trials market but companies face a growing number of challenges building and managing study databases, according to a study by Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development.
Australian researchers have developed an automated computer technique that is able to aid in the diagnosis of bladder cancer, allowing suspect lesion images to be quickly and effectively analysed and then classified for cancer risk.
Most of us are aware of the impact globalisation is having on vulnerable rainforests, apex predators and a swathe of endangered species, but little attention is paid to how human activity is affecting microorganisms across the planet.
