Just What the Doctor Ordered

Human beings are some of the most complex systems in the world, and responses to illness, disease, and impairments manifest in countless different ways. When it comes to making sure that your system stays up and running, healthcare professionals typically have their own deep well of knowledge—but the addition of artificial intelligence tools offers unprecedented […]

Nanosensor Tracking Communication Between Body and the Brain

BioE/COS Professor Heather Clark developed a new DNA-based nanosensor that tracks neurotransmitter communication between the body and brain in real-time. The findings were published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. A burgeoning field of medicine known as bioelectronic medicine seeks to use highly specific nerve stimulation to treat neurological diseases. In order to precisely target the nerves, scientists need to know how they react in real time and in living organisms; this nanosensor represents a step in that direction.
