    Robo-thread

    Published on Aug 28, 2019

    MIT engineers have developed a magnetically steerable, thread-like robot that can actively glide through narrow, winding pathways, such as the labyrinthine vasculature of the brain.
    "Robotic thread is designed to slip through the brain’s blood vessels"
    Magnetically controlled device could deliver clot-reducing therapies in response to stroke or other brain blockages.

    The future of nanotechnology

    Dec 9, 2019

    Nanotechnology - the deliberate systematic mechanical manipulation of matter at the nanoscale - is revolutionizing medicine in ways that will have profound effects on our health and longevity. Rapid improvements in nanotechnology increasingly allow control of the very building blocks of life, including proteins and DNA.

    This London Futurists event featured Sonia Contera, one of the leading researchers in nanotechnology. Sonia heads the Contera Lab in the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford, and is the author of the new book "Nano Comes to Life: How Nanotechnology Is Transforming Medicine and the Future of Biology". In this event, Sonia gave her insider's perspective on this new frontier, revealing how nanotechnology enables a new kind of multidisciplinary science that is poised to give us control over our own biology, our health, and our lives. Sonia also argued for the need to complement reductionist approaches to biology with multi-disciplinary perspectives.

    The event was chaired by David Wood. The camera was operated by Kiran Manam.
