When a person is fatally wounded in a car accident, it is of utmost importance to keep the person stable till they receive medical attention. Now researchers at the University of Sydney have taken a huge step forward in this area by developing an adhesive surgical glue.

Nearly 12 million people all over the world are afflicted with polycystic kidney disease. Researchers have always faced the challenge of not being able to gauge and study the progression of this disease in a laboratory setting. However, with the help of stem cells, it’s been possible for researchers to create mini-kidney organoids to study renal disease that contain a realistic micro-anatomy.  

Heart failure or the heart muscle's inability to pump blood efficiently affects approximately 37 million people worldwide. Nearly half of the patients diagnosed with heart failure die within five years of the diagnosis. While there is plenty of research on heart failure and its treatments, a promising new study may contribute significantly to heart muscle function.

Premature babies suffer from several health problems such as apnea, respiratory distress syndrome, or anemia. Even while being kept in incubators and hooked to ventilators, premature babies face many challenges. However, there may be hope as researchers have now created an artificial womb to help extremely premature babies survive amidst a less harsh environment.

Most parents have an ongoing struggle with regard to an early bedtime. Now scientific research provides evidence that there may be some wisdom in the age-old early bedtime rule for children.

Does the healing and repairing of injuries almost instantly sound unreal? A new technology, which is designed to generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient's own body, manages to do exactly that.

Every year, people with compromised organs such as hearts, livers, and kidneys are saved by organs donated by deceased people. But there are far too many people in need of organs and the organ transplant waitlist is ever-growing. Several patients die while waiting for a match. Many attempts have been made to look for alternatives but now there’s hope because of gene editing. 

In developed countries, every year, many deaths are caused by heart failure. Very few cases of heart disease are treatable and most heart patients succumb to it. However, scientists have now found a way to trick the heart back to health.  

The brain loses its ability to learn, remember and adapt with age. Much like the rest of the body, there is an obvious decline in the way our brain functions. Now a new study conducted on mice shows that manipulating a single gene can help rejuvenate the normal cognitive functioning of the brain.

Invasive surgeries involve tools that are rigid and there’s a high risk of accidentally puncturing or tearing tissue. Identifying the need for minimally invasive surgical tools, a team of Harvard scientists have designed a device that functions as a highly intelligent robotic arm.
