Ebola Scare: New Online 3D Tool Developed to Help Researchers Develop Vaccines

Johns Hopkins biomedical engineers have developed a free, Internet tool that could speed up the creation of new drugs to treat Ebola virus infections and take preventive steps as well. The software, called MuPIT Ebola Edition, enables a researcher to visualize Ebola gene mutations with 3-D protein structures, offers views of anti-body binding sites or epitopes on protein surfaces. These ...

Flip-side of 3-D Printer: Replica of Bullet Developed for Deadly 3-D Printed Guns

A Pennsylvania-based machinist has developed a bullet designed to be fired specifically from 3D printed guns. His ammunition uses a thicker steel shell with a lead bullet inserted an inch inside. The shell is deep so that it can contain the explosion of the round’s gunpowder instead of transferring that force to the plastic body or barrel of the gun. ...

Indian-origin sisters develop electronic stethoscope to detect lung, heart disease

Two Indian-origin high school students in the US have developed screening tools to detect lung and heart disease using electronic stethoscopes. Curious to find a way to detect early lung damage in people exposed to noxious air pollutants, the sister duo  Ilina and Medha Krishen from Port Huron Northern High School, Michigan in the US, developed a screening mechanism using ...
