Tel Aviv University
IDTechEx spoke to Dr Assaf Shapira, who is Research Laboratory Manager at Tel Aviv University. His laboratory group unveiled the first 3D bioprint of a heart with human tissue including chambers, ventricles and all blood vessels required to function.
First 3D printed heart using patient's biological materials
In a major medical breakthrough, researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D vascularised engineered heart using a patient's own cells and biological materials.
Genetically encoded sensor isolates hidden leukemic stem cells
All stem cells can multiply, proliferate and differentiate. Because of these qualities, leukemic stem cells are the most malignant of all leukemic cells. Understanding how leukemic stem cells are regulated has become an important area of cancer research.
Artificial intelligence predicts Alzheimer's years before diagnosis
Artificial intelligence technology improves the ability of brain imaging to predict Alzheimer's disease, according to a study.
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment receives clearance
BrainsWay Ltd announces that it has received De Novo clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its deep transcranial magnetic stimulation system for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder in adults.
Organic printing inks may restore sight to blind people
A simple retinal prosthesis is being developed using cheap and widely-available organic pigments used in printing inks and cosmetics, it consists of tiny pixels like a digital camera sensor on a nanometric scale. Researchers hope that it can restore sight to blind people.
Smartwatch software may now verify your signatures
New software developed by researchers enables smartwatches to verify handwritten signatures.
Efficient approach for tracking physical activity with wearables
Researchers have developed an energy-efficient technique for accurately tracking a user's physical activity based on data from wearable devices.
Genetic modification boosts algal hydrogen production
Researchers have revealed how microalgae produce hydrogen, a clean fuel of the future, and suggest a possible mechanism to jumpstart mass production of this environmentally-friendly energy source.

Cyborg cardiac patch may treat the diseased heart
More than 25% of the people on the national US waiting list for a heart will die before receiving one. Despite this discouraging figure, heart transplants are still on the rise. There just hasn't been an alternative. Until now.
Enabling 3D printing of sensors using nickel nano-particles
Nano Dimension has signed a collaboration agreement with Ramot at Tel Aviv University, to collaborate on the development of an application method for a nanoparticle nickel material developed at the University Labs.
3D printed robot locusts
A new miniature 3D printed robot is poised to make a major contribution to the field of advanced robotics.
StoreDot is a startup company with a new process which modifies peptides so that they self-assemble into quantum dots. These proprietary organic compounds are capable of storing an electrical charge or emitting visible light.
Peptide-based nanotechnology applied to smartphones and tablets
StoreDot Ltd., a nanotechnology startup company which has discovered the first bio-organic Nanodots, has announced that it has received $6 million from several strategic and private investors.
Elbit System is an international defense electronics company. They have diversified into energy storage technology through a comprehensive supercapacitor research program. They are focusing on aqueous electrolyte based supercapacitors, which are safer but with lower performance than organic electrolyte based supercapacitors. However based on improvements in electrode materials (such as carbon nanotubes) they are closing the performance gap. They are a company with high-level research capabilities.
