Scientists at Pandorum have successfully formulated a novel hydrogel that can encapsulate and deliver corneal stem cells to the wound site, to stimulate scarless regeneration. Pandorum s cell laden hydrogel can be directly applied in a minimally invasive manner as Liquid Cornea to corneal wounds and perforations, and can also be 3D bio printed as corneal lenticules for lamellar keratoplasty. This research study was presented at the prestigious annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO 2019) held in Vancouver, Canada.Dr. Tuhin Bhowmick, co founder of Pandorum who holds a PhD from the Indian Institute of Science, and is an alumnus of European Molecular Biology Labs (EMBL), said, Being able to bio engineer critical tissues such as the human cornea is a significant milestone. The work is currently in the stage of animal studies, and the team is preparing to move towards pilot human studies in 2020.
The unpublished findings are based on data from more than 49,000 people with autism and 2.3 million controls in Sweden. Researchers presented the results today at the 2019 International Society for Autism Research meeting in Montreal. This should really be a wake up call, says Isidora Stark, a clinical psychiatrist and doctoral student at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, who presented the findings. If you have a person with autism who comes with self harm, then I think all our attention should be to lessen the reasons for self harm.
One of the flagship features of blockchain technology is its ability to guarantee immutability, provide scarcity and prevent fraud; and despite the rampant scam ICOs and security breaches, the innovation has more or less fulfilled this promise. As such, it has also earned the attention of the legacy art world. Not only is there a lucrative black market for false Van Gogh or Davinci tableaus, but it also doesn t appear that the trend will be ending anytime soon. In 2014, for instance, the Fine Art Expert Institute (FAEI) reported that at least half of the artwork circulated in the market is fake. In 2018, The Telegraph explained how a collection of 21 paintings from Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani were ultimately declared fake despite costing the gallery millions of dollars to acquire.
The outcome of a battle heating up at Google over the limits of employee free speech will have huge consequences for all of us. Will Google shut down internal dissent and silence whistleblowers? Or will the company live up to its initial motto, Don t be evil? In 2017, researchers Meredith Whittaker and Kate Crawford founded the AI Now Institute at New York University, with the goal of produc ing interdisciplinary research on the social implications of artificial intelligence in four key domains: rights and liberties, labor and automation, bias and inclusion, and safety and critical infrastructure. Since then, the group has published key research on race and gender discrimination in AI, public agency accountability, litigation related to algorithms, and more. (Full disclosure: The ACLU is a proud partner of AI Now.)

We all had an amazing experience learning from other teams ideas and interacting with professional engineers as well as fellow students, said team member Lucas Brown, a freshman in aerospace engineering. The UC Davis students entered the Martian Agricultural and Plant Sciences (MAPS) project for this year s BIG Idea Challenge, organized by the National Institute of Aerospace in collaboration with NASA. Their goal: to design a greenhouse to support four astronauts during a two year stay on Mars. The design needed to relate to the Mars Ice Home concept, an inflatable structure that would arrive on Mars before the crew and be partly assembled automatically. The walls of the ice home and greenhouse would be filled with water, frozen solid in Martian conditions, for structure and protection from radiation.

Elijah Nouvelage Reuters After nearly every election, journalists and pundits bloviate during postmortems at Harvard s Kennedy School and the Aspen Institute about how there were too many process stories in their campaign coverage too many articles and segments about the horse race, how big the crowds were, and how much money the candidates raised. Reporters promise to do more in depth reporting during the next cycle, painting fuller pictures of the candidates and the choices Americans will face as they enter the ballot box.Well, we re more than a year and a half out from the 2020 election, and they re already screwing it up again.
A recent study conducted by a team of researchers from the QUT and QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute was able to detect a new burst of the zika virus through the spread of Dengue Mosquito in the Queensland area. Due to the widespread of the mosquito, researchers focused on understanding the negative effect behind it. They were able to distinguish that the dengue mosquito was the primary cause of spread of Zika virus back in the day.The study was led by Dr. Francesca Frentiu, from QUT 's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation. He published his results in the PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases Journal. To reach their findings, his team had to study the previously published article in the same journal by the name of Vector competence of Australian Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus for an epidemic strain of Zika virus .
Eight suspected outbreaks have been reported since January. An outbreak is a cluster of at least five cases from the same area, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Health officials suspect one death may have been caused by the disease.According to the BMC, none of the patients who have been clinically diagnosed with measles have been vaccinated against the disease. ”These cases are from areas where people and school officials have repeatedly refused vaccinations, ” said a senior official from the BMC 's health department. Clinical diagnosis is made on the basis of visible symptoms, like fever and a rash. The presence of the virus will be confirmed after tests by the National Institute of Virology (NIV).
