Drug and material discoveries to be untangled in VR

Drug and material discoveries to be untangled in VR
A joint team of computer science and chemistry researchers, in collaboration with developers at Bristol based start-up Interactive Scientific and Oracle Corporation, have used Oracle's public cloud infrastructure to combine real-time molecular simulations with the latest virtual reality technology. This collaboration has made it possible for researchers to reach out and ‘touch’ molecules as they move - folding them, knotting them, plucking them and changing their shape to test how they interact.

Smart bandages designed to tailor treatment for chronic wounds

Smart bandages designed to tailor treatment for chronic wounds
A team of engineers led by Tufts University has developed a prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds and deliver appropriate drug treatments to improve the chances of healing. While the lab-tested bandages remain to be assessed in a clinical context, the research, published today in the journal Small, is aimed at transforming bandaging from a traditionally passive treatment into a more active paradigm to address a persistent and difficult medical challenge.
