EPFL researchers have combined low-power chip design, machine learning algorithms, and soft implantable electrodes to produce a neural interface that can identify and suppress symptoms of various neurological disorders.

A neuro-chip to manage brain disorders

A new electromagnetic device that enables high-precision measurements of a broad range of soft biological tissues, has established a new standard of precision in the mechanobiology field, say researchers. The method allows for the mechanical testing of tissues the size of human biopsy samples, making it particularly relevant for studies of human disease.

The Fe+male Tech Heroes was initially designed as a platform from women to (primarily) women. Over the years, our network has expanded and reached many men who understand that diverse input is pivotal for the success of any project. One of those smart minds is Julien Penders, who believes initiatives like ours are crucial to inspire the younger generation and change society for the better.

Using these engineered proteins, researchers can record histories that reveal when certain genes are activated or how cells respond to a drug.

Self-assembling proteins can store cellular "memories"

Success lies in open innovation and forging partnerships to further develop deep-tech, medical applications for its technology. So, at first glance, Eindhoven and its semiconductor and deep-tech focus isn’t the obvious place for a pharma company. Yet the founders of Emultech knew they needed to be here, and time has proved them right.
