A tool to help brain surgeons test and more precisely remove cancerous tissue was successfully used during surgery, according to a Purdue University and Brigham and Women's Hospital study.
"In a matter of seconds this technique offers molecular information that can detect residual tumor that otherwise may have been left behind in the patient," says R. Graham Cooks, the Purdue professor who co-led the research team. http://bit.ly/1lCcaqh

Researcher Rebecca Kramer and her students are working on a technique that might be used to produce "soft machines" made of elastic materials and liquid metals for potential applications in robotics, medical devices and consumer electronics. Such an elastic technology could make possible robots that have sensory skin and stretchable garments that people might wear to interact with computers or for therapeutic purposes. http://bit.ly/1lNMQCo
