CRISPR gene editing makes stem cells 'invisible' to immune system
Scientists have used the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing system to create the first pluripotent stem cells that are functionally "invisible" to the immune system, a feat of biological engineering that, in laboratory studies, prevented rejection of stem cell transplants.
3D printed sponge to minimise effects of cancer treatment
With the help of sponges inserted in the bloodstream to absorb excess drugs, doctors are hoping to prevent the dangerous side effects of toxic chemotherapy agents or even deliver higher doses to knock back tumors, like liver cancer, that don't respond to more benign treatments.
IDTechEx met with Stephen Ursenbach and Guy Hatch, CEO and CTO respectively as well as being co-founders of Reveal Biosensors.
Artificial intelligence predicts Alzheimer's years before diagnosis

IDTechEx analyst Nadia Tsao interviewed Aether CEO Ryan Franks on March 2, 2017. Aether is currently shipping in beta, and aims to provide a highly versatile 3D bioprinter for an affordable price.
Wearable sensing technology for heart failure patients
Scientists are working to address heart failure issues by building wearable and weighing-scale-based ballistocardiogram technology for monitoring heart failure patients at home.
DNA-guided 3-D printing of human tissue is unveiled
Development of a technique to 3-D print tiny models of human tissues, called organoids, more precisely than ever before using a process that turns human cells into a biological equivalent of LEGO bricks.
'Smart bandage' detects bedsores before they are visible to doctors
Engineers at UC Berkeley are developing a new type of bandage that does far more than stanch the bleeding from a paper cut or scraped knee.
