Bone harvesting tool

Bone sample cylinders are difficult to obtain because they need to be much larger than bone marrow biopsies. Small biopsies break easily, limiting their utility for analysis of diseases. Obtaining large intact bone samples is technically difficult with conventional instruments, requiring pressure that is traumatic for the patient and can easily damage the bone. This technology is a simple to

Hand sanitizer containing natural extracts

Many of us have formed a love-hate relationship with hand sanitizer in 2020. Though necessary, many have an unpleasant smell, cause skin irritation, or feel sticky and gross. This is a hand sanitizer product that combines pharmaceutical ingredients and natural essential oils, to create a pleasant smelling, soft feeling, and effective antibacterial/antiviral agent.

Physiotherapy toy for hand exercises

Hand and finger physiotherapy exercises have been shown to relieve pain and prevent arthritic joints from getting worse. However, such exercises are challenging for people with arthritis because such movements are painful. This trumpet toy helps motivate people to do these exercises by making music and light effects in response to correct movements.

Naturally Derived Blood Clotting Agent

Blood clotting, or hemostatic, agents are a medical necessity to prevent bleeding after injury or during surgery. Currently available hemostatic agents are limited in their utility (e.g. poor shelf-life, toxic side-effects) or come from animal sources. This hemostatic agent is derived from a biopolymer found in fungi. It has exceptional blood-clotting activity, is antimicrobial, and biocompatible.

Cellular delivery for gene therapy

With modern gene editing technology, it is now possible to precisely repair genes that cause human disease. However, there is a bottleneck in getting the required gene editing components into the cells that are affected by the faulty gene. This technology solves this problem, creating a cellular delivery system for these gene editing tools.

Skin Lesion Detection and Diagnosis

Skin cancers are incredibly common, but they are difficult to detect at an early stage. We all have odd moles and bumps on our skin, but these are examined by a doctor maybe once a year, at most. With this app, patients can self-monitor their skin lesions and get an accurate prediction of cancer risk.

Detection of CAR-T Cells

CAR-T cell therapy is an exciting new form of cancer therapy that uses the patient’s own immune system to attack cancer cells. However, CAR-T cells are difficult to monitor in a patient, preventing an assessment of whether they are working or not. These researchers have developed an easy solution to study leukaemia- and lymphoma-specific CAR-T cells.

Novel treatment for leukaemia

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is one of the deadliest blood cancers, with a 5-year survival rate of less than 25%. There has been no dramatic improvement in AML treatments since the 1970s, but this group of researchers has identified a druggable Achille’s Heel, specific to AML and other blood cancers.

Decoding brain-to-muscle signals

Measuring how the brain controls muscle movement is of great value, for example in assessing physical rehabilitation, neurodegenerative or muscular degenerative diseases, and athletic training. Current techniques for this, however, lack depth of information about individual nerve-to-muscle-fibre functional connections. This technology provides the resolution for these individual connections, creating a sharper image of nerve-motor function.

Precision in blood pressure measurement

The most common method of measuring blood pressure – the “cuff method” – is surprisingly inaccurate. Incorrect measurements lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment for hypertension, which is a major risk for cardiovascular disease. This device measures multiple physical parameters in a non-invasive manner to give a more accurate blood pressure measurement.
