Smartphone-based device could provide rapid, low-cost molecular tumor diagnosis | KurzweilAI | 04/15/15

Smartphone-based device could provide rapid, low-cost molecular tumor diagnosis | KurzweilAI | 04/15/15 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
A smartphone-based device developed by Harvard Medical School investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital could bring rapid, accurate molecular diagnosis of cancer and other diseases to locations lacking the latest medical technology.

The device uses technology for making holograms to collect detailed microscopic images for digital analysis of the molecular composition of cells and tissues.

“The global burden of cancer, limited access to prompt pathology services in many regions, and emerging cell profiling technologies increase the need for low-cost, portable and rapid diagnostic approaches that can be delivered at the point of care,” said Cesar Castro, HMS instructor in medicine at Mass General and co-lead author of a report in PNAS Early Edition.

“The emerging genomic and biological data for various cancers, which can be essential to choosing the most appropriate therapy, supports the need for molecular profiling strategies that are more accessible to providers, clinical investigators and patients.

......This will help bring "real-time diagnosis" to Frontier/Rural America at an affordable cost.  Hope our Frontier Rural Health Network can get in on the pilot "field studies" for this  device.

Getting to the Root: Enriching the Land to Enrich Livelihoods | Clinton Foundation | 04/22/15

Getting to the Root: Enriching the Land to Enrich Livelihoods | Clinton Foundation | 04/22/15 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
Smallholder farmers live off their land. They depend on the strength of their agricultural systems, using their land to grow food to feed their families while harvest surpluses are sold in markets for supplemental income. Generally, the success of agricultural systems depends on sound agronomic practices, access to and utilization of high quality seed and inputs, and the environment.  In most agrarian societies or countries, deforestation, burning of croplands, mono-cropping and tillage are persistent issues that can undermine the efficiency and productivity of agricultural systems. 
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

....What if a garden could grow a healthier generation?

What if a tree could sprout a new economy?

Climate change and sustainability are at the root of many pressing global issues. In recognition of Earth Day, we're highlighting how projects that keep our planet healthy can also advance progress for individuals and communities around the world.

From "farm to tray" school lunch programs that help fight childhood obesity to reforestation projects that create good jobs in Haiti, our innovative solutions are improving people's lives while also supporting sustainability.
