Scientists have created a revolutionary new electronic membrane that could replace pacemakers, fitting over a heart to keep it beating regularly over an indefinite period of time.

The device uses a “spider-web-like network of sensors and electrodes” to continuously monitor the heart’s electrical activity and could, in the future, deliver electrical shocks to maintain a healthy heart-rate.

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Washington University in St. Louis used computer modelling technology and a 3D-printer to create a prototype membrane and fit it to a rabbit’s heart, keeping the organ operating perfectly “outside of the body in a nutrient and oxygen-rich solution”.

Prof DeryaUnutmaz ,sir your An excellent contribution in the field of pacemaker ,innovative concept ,wishing you all the best for the work contributed to serve the humanity. immunology is your another field of working , Looking for the development of vaccine for the immunodeficiency conditions. Certain other methods besides vaccine are to enhance immunity .1Pranayam inhalation, , exhalations and holding of breath in a cyclic way for 15_30 min or more increases immunity , 2. Stress decreases immunity , it can be improved by music therapy,meditation, use of antioxidants and other natural sources. We shall remain in contact to view it's other aspects. Wishing you all the best for the innovative work.

Artificial Platelets Promote Clotting.

Researchers have developed platelet-like particles (PLPs) that seem to overcome previous limitations, being able to move toward sites where clotting is occurring and contracting the clots much like natural platelets do.
Artificial platelets that help with clot formation have been created in the past, but they've been limited in their ability to gather around the site where

Ocean life looks unreal in this time-lapsed and hyper-focused video

It's rare that you get a close-up peek at the hidden wonders of the world. Especially when it's a glance at the multi-colored, pulsating creatures that live deep in the ocean's trenches.
Sandro Bocci, an Italian film and documentary maker who specializes in experimenting with filming nature, shot a hypnotic underwater time-lapse of some strange-looking, alien-like aquatic animals in a marine aquarium in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy.

Get ready for some incomprehensibly big numbers.

Scientists are predicting that genomics — the field of sequencing human DNA — will soon take the lead as the biggest data beast in the world, eventually creating more digital information than astronomy, particle physics and even popular Internet sites like YouTube.

The claim, published Tuesday in a PLOS Biology study, is a testament to the awesome complexity of the human genome, but it also illustrates a pressing challenge for the 15-year-old field. As genomics expands at an exponential rate, finding the digital space to store and manage all of the data is a major hurdle for the industry.
Scientists say genomics will end up being the biggest data hog, set to surpass astronomy, particle physics -- even YouTube.

+Andrew Bolt It's not just storing all the sequences a as a long chain of letters. It's also annotating them by regions, funtionality etc. E.g. which regions are coding for genes, and which are non-coding. For the non-coding regions, how do they regulate the coding regions? And for both regions, what kind of diseases are associated with each gene/region? When does a gene/non-coding region get activated etc..

Think of it more like a software program, you don't just store all the "letters" or code of it, but you also need to store information what each section does, which part does what, what is the network of information etc, when it should turn on ..

In 2001, Joshua Lederberg, a Nobel Prize-winning biologist, coined the term "microbiome," naming the trillions of microorganisms that reside in and on our bodies. Today, if you type that word into Google, you'll turn up thousands of hits linking gut bacteria to a laundry list of health problems, from food allergies to Ebola. Between 2007 and 2012, the number of journal articles published on the microbiome increased by nearly 250 percent. Our bodily inhabitants are quickly being cast as culprits or saviors for a diverse array of ailments.

The hype has kicked off a gold rush. Big food companies—including Nestle, PepsiCo, Monsanto, and General Mills—have funded gut bacteria studies, and some have even opened centers to develop foods that interact with the microbiome, such as probiotics. According to Transparency Market Research the global probiotics market is expected to reach an astonishing $45 billion by 2018.

Still, despite the optimism, some researchers caution that much of what we hear about microbiome science isn't always, well, science. Dr. Lita Proctor heads the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Human Microbiome Project (HMP), an outgrowth of the Human Genome Project. "We are discovering a whole new ecosystem," she says. But "I do have some fear—we all do in the field—that the hype and the potential overpromise, and the idea that somehow this is going to be different—there is a terrific fear that it will all backfire."
We're told that tweaks to the microbiome can cure everything from allergies to Ebola. Not exactly, say experts.

Some could find it easy to say microbiome studies are about shit.

If you had the opportunity to feed harmless bugs into a coffee grinder, would you enjoy the experience? Even if the bugs had names, and you could hear their shells painfully crunching? And would you take a perverse pleasure from blasting an innocent bystander with an excruciating noise?

These are just some of the tests that Delroy Paulhus uses to understand the “dark personalities” around us. Essentially, he wants to answer a question we all may have asked: why do some people take pleasure in cruelty? Not just psychopaths and murderers – but school bullies, internet trolls and even apparently upstanding members of society such as politicians and policemen.
Why are some people extraordinarily selfish, manipulative, and unkind? David Robson asks the scientist delving into the darkest sides of the human mind.

This 3D medical animation shows an overview of the different types of human papilloma virus, the diseases they cause, how HPV infects skin tissue and how an HPV infection can be prevented by getting an HPV vaccination. The animation continues on to show how cervical cancer may be prevented by early diagnosis with a Pap test and the common treatments for common and gentle warts caused by HPV.

+Derya Unutmaz Nice Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I would love your thoughts. Have you considered - Franaar Erase Wart Formula (search on google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for eradicating Genital Warts without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work buddy after a lifetime of fighting got great results with it.

Basic Information
I am a biomedical scientist interested in human immunology and regenerative medicine. My research focus is to understand the basic mechanisms of human immune response and  regulation. 

Our scientific goal is to ultimately fine tune the immune system. On the one hand, we aim to find better ways to boost the immune system against infections and to develop vaccines. On the other hand, we would like to reprogram to suppress the unwanted immunity to prevent autoimmune diseases and  inflammation, which also contributes to several cancers, diabetes, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases of aging. We are also developing stem cell and genetic engineering technologies to regenerate the immune system during aging and in immune deficiencies such as HIV infection. 

I am also interested in other technological advances in biological systems, robotics, nanotechnology and computation or artificial intelligence. I am highly optimistic  that we can overcome any problem our civilization encounters through science and technology.

My blog biosingularity follows some of the advances in biology, medicine and health. 

I am inspired by many remarkable people, some of whom I was greatly fortunate to know personally. However, two people have always been on the top of this list: Richard Feynman and Steve Jobs. They are also the reflection of my passion to change the world to enrich our lives through science, rational or creative thinking, elegant and practical application of technology.  Perhaps not surprisingly, I am a relentless fan of Apple products.
