In this fast-paced game, you must click on protein targets to grow your neuron, connecting new brain regions. Climb through the tissue, outcompeting rival neurons to form the longest connection you can.
Massachusetts Medical Society has released an iPad version of its venerable NEJM. In addition to all the content from the print version, the iPad app also includes audio and video materials from the NEJM.org website.
Biologic is a free iPad app by Bloom, the same young software firm that turned our music collections into galaxies. Their latest app reinterprets the social network feeds of Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn in a novel way.
Biologic displays your friends as cells--stick with me, it will actually make a lot of sense--and each cell is full of smaller substructures, which are status updates. As these status updates are shared, the microstructures within each cell grow, and the cells themselves grow, too.
Have you ever been tempted to order steak tartare but decided against it for fear of getting sick? This little cell phone scanner can take a look at it for you and let you know if it does in fact harbor any E. coli bacteria.
MinION is a USB powered disposable device that contains a sensor chip, ASIC and the fluidics system needed to perform a complete single-molecule sensing experiment. The goal is to democratize sequencing and eliminate the still-heady costs associated with genetic analysis, making DNA and protein sequencing as commonplace as an exam with a tongue depressor.
Every day, people search on Google for health information. Many of these searches relate to symptoms they or their loved ones may be experiencing. ... Data shows that a search for symptoms is often followed by a search for a related condition.
Inspired by the designer’s own personal experience of waiting too long during a stay at the emergency room, the Radio portable x-ray was imagined as a way to cut back on time spent in the radiology process.
Le CRIP, Cercle de réflexion de l'industrie pharmaceutique, un think tank à l’écoute de son environnement, se dote d’une plateforme internet lecrip.org qui traduit sa volonté d’écoute, d’éclairage et de contribution au débat sur l’actualité et sur l’évolution du monde de la santé.
At the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), epidemiologists study the patterns of flu data from the current season against historic data. The comparison helps them make informed decisions about how to respond to the virus: what kind of vaccine to make, how to make it, and how and where to distribute it. As data sets improve, scientists will be able to better predict how future strains of seasonal influenza will spread.
Apple held a media event in San Francisco today where they introduced the new iPad. The new iPad is set to be released in a number of countries on March 16th and brings a number of updates which will signifcantly appeal to the medical community.
Last summer scientists at Michigan State University reported about a new device they developed, called Gene-Z, that performs genetic analysis on microRNAs. The device is low cost, uses an Apple iPod Touch as an interface, and doesn’t require much energy, so can be charged using solar panels (you’ll need bigger ones for the iPod).
The Bluetooth low energy (BLE) standard promises long term connectivity of digital devices minus the short battery life that traditional Bluetooth has often been responsible for in the past. Health monitoring technologies may turn out to be the biggest beneficiaries of BLE, since size and power consumption are usually critical when devices have to be worn by patients over extended periods of time.
According to the survey, just over a quarter of all doctors in the EU — primary care and specialist — use an iPad for professional purposes. That’s a big number for a device primarily aimed at content consumption and not hardened against a hospital environment.
The "quantified self": It's a lifestyle philosophy that says tracking one's own personal data -- calories burned, hours slept, miles run -- is the path to self-realization. All this data-tracking requires gadgets, and many innovative specimens were on display at CES 2012 last month.
