Researchers develop ultra thin wearable skin electronics

This latest research by a Japanese academic-industrial collaboration, led by Professor Takao Someya at the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Engineering presents a new ultrathin, elastic display that fits snugly on the skin and can show the moving waveform of an electrocardiogram recorded by a breathable, on-skin electrode sensor. Combined with a wireless communication … Continue reading Researchers develop ultra thin wearable skin electronics

Metabolomics is an useful tool for personalized cancer management

Metabolomics, the analysis of the complete set of metabolites in a defined biological compartment, is a relatively novel approach. Metabolomics studies have been successfully applied to get a better understanding of many diseases, including a number of neoplastic processes. In this context, it is important to underline that cancer patients exhibit metabolic profiles that are … Continue reading Metabolomics is an useful tool for personalized cancer management
