NIBIB-supported researchers have created tiny gel particles that can perform the same essential functions as platelets. The particles could one day be used to control excessive bleeding following traumatic injury or in individuals with impaired clotting due to an inherited condition or as a result of certain medications or chemotherapy.

3-D printing has expanded into the bioprinting space, researchers are now starting to be able to develop “living prosthetics” made of cells rather than plastic.Learn more about how NIBIB-funded researchers are developing a living prosthetic ear at Forbes:
The combination of 3-D bioprinting and electronics have allowed researchers to develop a bionic ear made of cells rather than plastic. The fully functional ear is made from a coil antenna and cartilage, giving the ability to detect signals outside of the normal human hearing range, including radio waves.

It's long been known that scratching evokes a rewarding and pleasurable sensation in patients with chronic itch. Now, NIH- funded researchers in the Department of Dermatology and Temple Itch Center at Temple University School of Medicine (TUSM) may be closer to understanding why.
Researchers may be closer to understanding why scratching evokes a rewarding and pleasurable sensation in patients with chronic itch. Using advanced fMRI, they looked at brain activity while chronic itch patients and healthy subjects scratched. They found areas of the brain involved in motor control and reward processing were more activated in chronic itch patients while they scratched. This may help explain the addictive scratching experienced b...
