| ||The Nano-Tera project i-IronIC, led by Prof. G. De Micheli, EPFL, has led to the developement of a tiny, portable personal blood testing laboratory: a minuscule device implanted just under the skin provides an immediate analysis of substances in the body, and a radio module transmits the results to a doctor over the cellular phone network. This feat of miniaturization has many potential applications, including monitoring patients undergoing chemotherapy. |
| ||The teams of Prof. Christoph Gerber of the University of Basel and Dr. Donata Rimoldi from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in Lausanne have recently developed a novel diagnostic method that analyzes the RNA of cancer cells using nanomechanical sensors, i.e. microscopically small cantilevers. Thus, healthy cells can be distinguished from cancer cells. The research, carried out within the RTD project PATLiSci led by Dr. Harry Heinzelmann, was just published in Nature Nanotechnology. |
