New Soft Contact Lens Diagnoses and Monitors Eye Diseases

March 11, 2021

A new soft contact lens may soon be joining the ranks of methods to diagnose and monitor ocular diseases. A multidisciplinary team of researchers from Purdue University in the U.S. created the lens, which is a novel, painless, and unobtrusive way to keep an eye on these medical conditions.

New Contact Lens Technology to Help Diagnose and Monitor Medical Conditions

March 11, 2021

A research group from Purdue University collaborated with chemical, mechanical and biomedical engineers, together with clinicians, to create the novel technology. The researchers facilitated commercial soft contact lenses to be used as a bioinstrumentation tool for unobtrusive tracking of clinically significant data linked to underlying ocular health conditions.

Researchers race to develop antiviral weapons to fight the pandemic coronavirus

March 11, 2021

In March 2020, as the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic was coming into view, Jen Nwankwo and colleagues turned a pair of artificial intelligence (AI) tools against SARS-CoV-2. One newly developed AI program, called SUEDE, digitally screens all known druglike compounds for likely activity against biomolecules thought to be involved in disease. The other, BAGEL, predicts how to build inhibitors to known targets. The two programs searched for compounds able to block human enzymes that play essential roles in enabling the virus to infect our cells.

DOPPLER CHECKS INSIDE LIVING CELLS TO TELL ‘FRIEND FROM FOE’

March 9, 2021

Doppler radar improves lives by peeking inside air masses to predict the weather. In their new study, researchers used Doppler to sneak a peek inside cells and track their metabolic activity in real time, without having to wait for cultures to grow.

Purdue team predicts next-generation microbiome research promises agricultural advances

March 9, 2021

For thousands of years, humans have altered — often negatively and inadvertently —microbial communities in a quest to improve agricultural crops. In recent years, knowledge about the roles microbes play in these systems has grown rapidly but is not yet to the point at which farmers and society have reaped benefits.
