A group of respiratory medicine and public health experts are calling for lung cancer in never-smokers to be given greater recognition. It is estimated that around 6,000 people in the UK who have never smoked die of lung cancer every year.
New material to revolutionise electronics, fast-charging battery tech
Tiny, individual, flexible ribbons of crystalline phosphorus have been made in a world first, and they could revolutionise electronics and fast-charging battery technology.
At the IDTechEx Show! Europe 2019, IDTechEx spoke to Nourish3d, a 3 year old start up from Birmingham. Its Founder & CEO gave a presentation during the '3D Printing in the Medical Industry' conference session.
Disordered crystals are promising for future battery technology
Tiny, disordered particles of magnesium chromium oxide may hold the key to new magnesium battery energy storage technology, which could possess increased capacity compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries.
First language study using new generation of wearable brain scanner
Scientists have carried out the first study of human cognition using a new generation of brain scanner that can be worn like a helmet. This marks an important step forward in the translation of their new technique from the laboratory bench to a genuinely useful tool for cognitive neuroscience and clinical application.
