Brain-penetrating nanoparticle attacks deadly tumors

 

(Nanowerk News) Scientists have developed a new approach for treating a deadly brain cancer that strikes 15,000 in the United States annually and for which there is no effective long-term therapy. The researchers, from Yale and Johns Hopkins, have shown that the approach extends the lives of laboratory animals and are preparing to seek government approval for a human clinical trial.

 

“We wanted to make a system that would penetrate into the brain and deliver drugs to a greater volume of tissue,” said Mark Saltzman, a biomedical engineer at Yale and principal investigator of the research. “Drugs have to get to tumor cells in order to work, and they have to be the right drugs.

MIT made a movie screen that brings 3D to all seats – without the glasses

MIT made a movie screen that brings 3D to all seats – without the glasses | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The MIT Computers Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) set out to create a display that lets people see the 3D effect in a movie theater, from any seat in the house – no glasses required. Teaming up with Israel’s Weiszmann Institute of Science, CSAIL managed to put together a prototype called ‘Cinema 3D’ that uses a complex arrangement of lenses and mirrors to create a set number of parallax barriers (think of Venetian blinds that show a slightly different set of pixels to each of the viewer’s eyes to simulate depth) that can address every viewing angle in the theater based on seat locations.

Los enemigos de la innovación

Los enemigos de la innovación | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
“No hay ninguna idea inteligente que pueda ganar aceptación general sin mezclarla antes con un poco de estupidez”. La frase es de Fernando Pessoa y toca un problema que las sociedades humanas afrontan desde que comenzaron a existir: la oposición a nuevas tecnologías que pueden cambiar el mundo.

Desde el café a la agricultura mecanizada, pasando por la electricidad, los refrigeradores o la música grabada, la historia está llena de ejemplos de cómo las sociedades humanas se han resistido a adoptar innovaciones sin las que hoy no podríamos entender el mundo.
