Bloodless Star Trek Surgery Possible Thanks to Molecular Surgery

Dang it, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a butcher!  That’s what Dr. McCoy of Star Trek might say if he had to do surgery in the 21st century.  Well, soon, Dr. McCoy might feel right at home, as the potential for ‘bloodless’ surgery might now be possible thanks to molecular surgery.

‘Molecular surgery’ reshapes living tissue with electricity but no incisions – Science Daily
American Chemical Society – Traditional surgery to reshape a nose or ear entails cutting, sometimes followed by long recovery times and scars. Now, researchers have developed a ‘molecular surgery’ process using tiny needles, electric current and 3D molds to quickly reshape living tissue with no incisions, scarring or recovery time. It shows promise as a noninvasive alternative to laser eye surgery. The researchers will present their results today at the American Chemical Society (ACS) Spring 2019 National Meeting & Exposition.  “We envision this new technique as a low-cost office procedure done under local anesthesia,” says Michael Hill, Ph.D., one of the project’s principal investigators, who will discuss the work at the meeting. “The whole process would take about five minutes. | Get the Full Story

  • Mars Ain’t Dead Folks, The Red Planet Still Has Water, Maybe

    Deep groundwater may generate surface streams on Mars – Science Daily University of Southern California – New research suggests that deep groundwater could still be active on Mars and could originate surface streams in some near-equatorial areas on Mars….The researchers at USC have determined that groundwater likely exists in a broader geographical area than just the poles of Mars and that there is an active system, as deep as 750 meters, from which groundwater comes to the surface through cracks in the specific craters they analyzed. | Get the Full Story […]

  • Microbugs to Build Proteins for Space Peoples

    Bacterial factories could manufacture high-performance proteins for space missions  – Science Daily American Chemical Society  –  Nature has evolved protein-based substances with mechanical properties that rival even the best synthetic materials. Pound for pound, spider silk is stronger and tougher than steel. But unlike steel, the natural fiber cannot be mass-produced. Today, scientists report a method in which bacteria produce spider silk and other proteins that could be useful during space missions. | Get the Full Story […]

  • Thank to the Cold, Your Lungs Can Taste Your Food

    A bad bout of flu triggers ‘taste bud cells’ to grow in the lungs  – Science Daily University of Pennsylvania – When researchers examined mice that had recovered from severe influenza, they came upon a surprising discovery: Taste bud cells had grown in the animals’ lungs. The team believes the cells may play a role in immunity. | Get the Full Story […]

  • Fake Atoms From Graphene is Now a Thing

    Scientists drill into white graphene to create artificial atoms – Science Daily By drilling holes into a thin two-dimensional sheet of hexagonal boron nitride with a gallium-focused ion beam, scientists have created artificial atoms that generate single photons, which work in air and room temperature. | Get the Full Story […]
