In order to ensure this, medical, sterile and food supplies must be provided quickly and efficiently.Every day in the hospital therefore requires a logistical masterpiece.
Yet, freed from gravity's grip, tumor cells, for example, behave in an entirely different way.International team of scientists led by Roderic Guigó at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona showed that changes in gene expression in different tissues triggered by death can be used to predict the time of death of an individual.The field of biomimetics offers an innovative approach to solving human problems by imitating strategies found in nature.As part of the "Thyroid Cancer Cells in Space" project by the University of Magdeburg, smartphone-sized containers carrying poorly differentiated thyroid cancer cells are sent into space.Research does not always occur in laboratory settings.Digital solutions and automated technologies are particularly useful for storing, ordering, transporting and disposing various products.By networking the respective areas – from the pharmacy to the kitchen – all processes in the hospital can be optimally managed. Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have achieved a major milestone toward designing a safe and effective vaccine to both treat heroin addiction and block lethal overdose of the drug.The page you are trying to access is currently down for maintenance. We apologize for this inconvenience and are working hard to get everything in order and back online. Medical research could also benefit from biomimetics, as a group of international experts from various fields, including a wildlife veterinarian and wildlife ecologists from Vetmeduni Vienna, point out using the example of chronic kidney disease.In a recent study, a research group at Med Uni Vienna has published further details about the function of an enigmatic protein.
