NIBIB-funded researchers found that two people with quadriplegia improved voluntary movement and use of their hands following electrical stimulation of their spinal cords. Learn more at NIBIB:
Two people with quadriplegia improved voluntary movement and use of their hands following electrical stimulation of their spinal cords, according to a new study funded in part by the National Institutes of Health. The method used is called epidural stimulation, in which a device implanted on the ...

NIBIB grantee Robert Langer has developed many useful medical products. In separate research he and colleagues at MIT, Massachusetts General Hospital, Living Proof, and Olivo Labs have developed a new material that can temporarily tighten skin, and smooth wrinkles. One day, it could also be used to deliver drugs to help treat skin conditions such as eczema and other types of dermatitis. http://news.mit.edu/2016/polymer-temporarily-tightens-skin-drug-delivery-0509
“Second skin” polymer could also be used to protect dry skin and deliver drugs.

As long as researchers have been growing bacteria on Petri dishes using a jelly-like growth medium called agar, they have been struck by the interesting colors and growth patterns that microbes can produce from one experiment to the next. This video is among the winners in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology’s 2015 BioArt competition. Learn more at the NIH Director's Blog:

For people struggling with severe depression, antidepressants have the potential to provide much-needed relief, but they often take weeks to work. That’s why there is growing excitement about reports that the anesthetic drug ketamine, when delivered intravenously in very low doses, can lift depression and suicidal thoughts within a matter of hours.
