Today, oncological diseases are a leading cause of death. Experts in medicine, chemistry and biology are hard at work developing medications and treatment methods. The fight against cancer is made difficult by the fact that it’s not just an illness with specific symptoms and causes. Oncological diseases are caused by DNA mutations that lead to malfunctions of various systems inside people’s bodies. Essentially, a specific set of mutations represents a separate disease that needs to be tackled. Personalized treatment is considered the most promising approach: a specific set of medications aimed at preventing tumor growth is developed for each patient.
Amphibous robots have been around for a long time, but they are all equipped with dangerous blades that can cause harm to marine animals and plants. A fundamentally different approach was demonstrated by scientists from the University of Pennsylvania and McGill University, who have made their Aqua2 machine completely safe.
Almost every modern science deals with large volumes of data. Digital Science is a company focused on developing instruments for the scientific ecosystem, which will simplify research processes and increase their efficiency.
