Crowdsourcing a cancer cure – Azure Magazine

Crowdsourcing a cancer cure – Azure Magazine | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it
Salvatore Iaconesi, an Italian artist, hacker and TED Fellow, created a website to garner feedback on how to treat his illness, then mapped out the suggestions from 50,000 artists, doctors and fellow patients, and made them accessible to all.

 

To create a bridge between the technical language of his diagnosis and the language of humans, he hacked his medical records. That is, he digitized them into a downloadable open format – “transformed them into a very personal version of data” – and made them accessible on his La Cura website. He could read notes from an array of specialists and view his various brain scans. And so could everyone else.

Spider Silk's Optical Properties Could Further Medical Device Development | Qmed | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it

Research conducted by scientists at Tufts University (Boston) and the CNRS Institut de Physiques de Rennes (France) demonstrates that natural silk could be used to manipulate light. The Tufts team is using the information they have gathered to create proteins that rely on silk’s optical properties for implantable sensors, while the Rennes team is using pristine, natural spider silk to guide light through photonic chips. This work could eventually lead to the development of silk-based biosensors and implantable medical imaging devices.

Nanotech can be used for MS, diabetes, food allergies and asthma

In a breakthrough for nanotechnology and multiple sclerosis, a biodegradable nanoparticle turns out to be the perfect vehicle to stealthily deliver an antigen that tricks the immune system into stopping its attack on myelin and halt a model of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) in mice, according to new Northwestern Medicine research.
The new nanotechnology also can be applied to a variety of immune-mediated diseases including Type 1 diabetes, food allergies and airway allergies such as asthma.

Fascinated by ‘today’s Haste society’ as he calls it...

 

“Many aspects of modern life are too fast,” states Boutkan. “Because of this a lot of quality is lost. We seem to have set our course towards the horizon and only focus on getting there as fast as possible, without taking time to look at our surroundings.”

This fascination is what led to Intervals, a graduation project inspired by a passage from Joke J. Hermsen’s book Stil de Tijd (Stop the Time): ‘Only in times of rest, the interval between two actions, can we reflect upon ourselves.’ From this, a series of products was designed each with an endlessly repetitive yet conscious function.

The Maker Movement Meets Big Business

The Maker Movement Meets Big Business | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it

read in design mind

 

On a recent rainy morning I walked through the front door of a former bank in downtown Brooklyn to find myself in a dusty lobby with cracked windowpanes. An elevator ride took me to another floor where I found cluttered rooms filled with lopsided bookshelves, used beakers, and dirty wine glasses. Finally, I arrived at my destination: a nonprofit organization called Genspace, where an unlikely community of artists and attorneys, high school students and Ph.Ds, venture capitalists, and architects regularly come together to get their hands dirty, literally—experimenting with, say, growing synthetic leather from bacterial cellulose.

That’s what the lively Genspace lab, behind its dingy façade, is all about. “We offer the possibility of getting into science hands-on,” Ellen Jorgensen, a TEDGlobal speaker and co-founder of the organization, told me. “We help people become able to talk more about and understand biology. Potential inventors can learn here.”
