A system capable of translating brain activity into synthesised speech by decoding the movements of muscles involved in vocalisation has shown its potential in a proof-of-concept experiment conducted by researchers at the University of California San Francisco.READ MORE
When developing diagnostic tests or evaluating results, it is important to understand how reliable those tests and therefore the results you are obtaining are. By using samples of known disease status, values such as sensitivity and specificity can be calculated that allow you to evaluate just that.READ MORE
Identical male twins Scott and Mark Kelly - both (now retired) NASA astronauts – spent one year apart as Scott travelled to and inhabited the International Space Station (ISS), whilst Mark stayed at home on earth. Researchers have gained valuable insights from the study results as to the physiological effects of space travel.READ MORE
From picking out cancerous tissue areas during diagnosis, to uncovering novel biomarkers of early detection, mass spectrometry has become an indispensable analytical technique in cancer research.READ MORE
Disaster Recovery (DR) is a vital process to ensure the rapid recovery of an organization’s applications, data and hardware that are critical to operations in the event of a natural disaster, network or hardware failure or human error. In this article, we explore how the public cloud is making ideal DR a reality.
We recently spoke with Jessica Wade, PhD, a physicist at Imperial College London to learn more about her extraordinary efforts to raise the profile of female scientists and other underrepresented groups in science.READ MORE
Originally developed as a platform for an over-the-counter pregnancy test, lateral flow tests have a lot more to offer. This article dives into how a digital spin and the integration of data analytics are expected to help lateral flow tests meet the changing demands of data-driven healthcare.READ MORE
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful technique used to identify and quantify the constituents of complex mixtures. Here, we take a look at how researchers are using NMR spectroscopy and databases in the emerging field of metabolomics.READ MORE
