The University of Cambridge is one of the world's foremost research universities. The University is made up of 31 Colleges and over 150 departments, faculties, schools and other institutions. Its mission is 'to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence'.
Researchers have developed a virtual reality application where a range of 3D modelling tools can be opened and controlled using just the movement of a user’s hand.
If electronic textiles (e-textiles) are to have a sustainable future and at scale, then a transition is needed to unlock innovative wearable e-textiles that fit a sustainable circular economy – adopting what has been termed as the 4R design concept: repair; recycle; replace; reduce.
Researchers have developed a 3D bioprinter for cancer research that can be folded into a carry-on pack, transported, and easily reassembled for printing inside a biosafety cabinet. The technology can perform rapid and reproducible manufacture of complex tumouroids – 3D cell cultures which resemble tumour tissues – to test potential immunotherapy treatments.
Combining Digital Twins with Artificial Intelligence (AI) decision-making technologies can transform agrifood production systems and supply chains – offering possible remedies to the problems of malnutrition, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and food waste, say researchers.
During COP27 people across the world flew to Sharm El Sheikh to discuss action on climate change. Aviation is a crucial way to bring us together to tackle this challenge – but it is also a major contributor to the problem.
A new method for the miniaturisation of biosensors will enable new possibilities for minimally invasive implants. The miniaturised transistors are fabricated on thin, flexible substrates, and amplify biosignals, producing currents more than 200 times larger than analogous alternatives.
