Implantable device aids weight loss

More than 700 million adults and children worldwide are obese, according to a 2017 study that called the growing number and weight-related health problems a 'rising pandemic'. New battery-free, easily implantable weight-loss devices developed by engineers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UniWM) could offer a promising new weapon for battling the bulge. In laboratory testing, the devices helped rats shed almost 40 percent of their body weight. Measuring less than 1 centimeter across, or about a third of the area of a U.S. penny, the tiny devices - which are safe for use in the body and implantable via a minimally invasive procedure - generate gentle electric pulses from the stomach’s natural churning motions and deliver them to the vagus nerve, which links the brain and the stomach.

A new biosensor for less invasive breast cancer detection

NIBIB-funded researchers have created a novel, low-cost biosensor to detect HER-2, a breast cancer (lat. Carcinoma) biomarker in the blood, allowing for a far less invasive diagnostic test than the current practice, a needle biopsy. Scientists at the Universities of Hartford and Connecticut and funded in part by NIBIB, combined microfluidic technology with diagnostics, including electrochemical sensors and biomarkers, into a powerful package that can give results in about 15 minutes. The biosensor chip was partially constructed using an inkjet printer, which layers nanoparticle inks onto a plastic surface to create an array of electrodes. The printed biosensor chip was deposited into a pre-fabricated microfluidic device which directs fluids to flow in a controlled manner. Colleen Krause, Ph.D., in collaboration with James Rusling, Ph.D., designed this biosensor to measure levels of the protein Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER-2), which when found at abnormal levels indicate a specific breast cancer type.

A micro-electromechanical energy harvester

Nowadays, it would be hard to not notice that electronic devices have become incredibly small. The use of miniature sensors in the upcoming Internet of Things (IoT) era could enable us to develop applications that were only seen in science fiction. However, microelectronic devices still require power to run, and energy-harvesting micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) can be used so that these minuscule contraptions can run on ambient energy, such as that coming from mechanical vibrations. A scientific team at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) developed a micro-electromechanical energy harvester that allows for more flexibility in design, which is crucial for future IoT applications.
