Since we can’t exactly ‘look under the hood’ anymore on all the digital things we use in everyday life, how do we know what these things are actually doing? And why do they seem to know so much about us anyway? A recent Wallenberg Foundation grant of SEK 4.5 million has been awarded to Umeå Institute of Design’s Heather Wiltse and Johan Redström to try to answer some of these questions.
Imagine a future where food waste has become a key source of energy instead of adding to our carbon footprint. What if billions of expectant mothers in developing countries could get access to safe surgery during childbirth? Could it be that we already know what space tourism will look like in 2040? On May 31– June 1, graduates present their degree projects at Umeå Institute of Design’s yearly exhibition, UID18 - Design Talks & Degree Show.
Transplant glomerulopathy is a common pathology in kidney transplantation that is associated with graft loss. French researchers identified 5 groups of patients with distinct characteristics - including different renal transplant survival chances. A machine learning approach was applied to a database to get these results. This promising approach is being translated into a clinician-accessible tool to assess the risk of graft loss associated with transplant glomerulopathy.
The German technology P.R.I.T.® with its air-liquid interface imitates lung behaviour. It is used for the first time to test a nanoparticle-based drug designed for inhalation.
EU-backed scientists have shown that Serengeti National Park’s wild dogs weren’t the victims of well-meaning researchers but left the area because of competitors like lions.
Women working in a Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) project muse on 2019’s theme of #BalanceforBetter.
An experiment carried out in Spain shows the distribution of an inhaled nanomedicine in rat lungs.
To slow down the rise of non-curable infections, a Dutch company developed a diagnostic kit to identify strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
