Share shares The idea behind the new technology is to replace the faulty ovary. Scientists start with a digital image of what they want to reproduce and the 3D printer then prints out layers on top of each other to create a 3D shape the material used to"build" the structure is fired out of the printer like ink. The material used varies depending on what"s being made - in the ovary study, it was gelatin. Scientists at Northwestern University in the U. Once the ovary was"printed", the researchers inserted oestrogen-producing cells and the tiny structures, known as oocytes, which eventually mature into eggs - both were derived from human cells. In a study reported earlier this month, mice implanted with the 3D printed ovaries were able to go on to deliver healthy babies and had normal hormone cycles, so could nurse them, too [file photo] The gelatin scaffold has"pores", so that once it was implanted, nutrients from the bloodstream would flow through to help the eggs grow. The whole structure was then filled with green dye and implanted into mice. When the babies were born, they lit up green under a special scan, indicating they"d been produced by an egg released from the 3D printed ovary. The researchers are now planning studies in pigs to help identify side-effects before moving on to human trials, which could be years off. They are also collaborating with two human research centres"that will enable us to study the translation for humans", explains lead researcher Dr Monica Laronda.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Our world is being transformed by rapid advances in sciences and technology that are touching every aspect of our lives. So what changes could these developments bring about for life as we know it? We only have to look around us to see just how much can change in a relatively short space of time. For example, handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets now allow us to have live video conversations with our friends, translate instantaneously between multiple languages, watch full length videos and monitor diverse aspects of our health from blood pressure to oxygen flow and stress levels.
As we look ahead, the decade could be shaped by advances in nanotechnology, information technology, vertical farming, artificial intelligence, robotics, 4D printing, super-smart materials, neuroscience, the biological sciences and genetics.
The Chamber Walls and Ceiling The walls and ceiling of the chamber are formed by the final section of u-block, partitioned off from the shaft by the first blocking stone, and terminated by the second blocking stone.
Yet we still do not have full understanding of the mechanisms of cause and prevention of foot ulcers for diabetics. There is a clear link between mechanical loading of the plantar tissue and foot ulceration but the current work to date mainly focusses on normal stress but it is known that shear stress plays a large role. This project aims to understand how plantar tissue is stressed during gait by investigating shear loading using measurement and modelling.
This will be achieved by 1. In vitro animal tissue testing using shear loading measuring force and deformation 3. Use of analytical and numerical models finite element analysis to quantify failure mechanisms. The impact of this work will inform future medical treatment and the development of new medical devices. Skills Entry requirements can be found by selecting the relevant PhD programme at this link: One of the reasons for large discrepancies between different numerical techniques is associated with the prescription of the boundary conditions BC and the assumptions made in simplifying the simulations.
The aim of this project is to simulate the blood flow in 2 complex cardiovascular configurations including an aorta and a coronary bypass graft and assess the effects of: Important advances have been made considering a wide variety of fluid dynamics parameters of the blood flow. The aim of this project is to assess the effectiveness of all the existing parameters which are currently used as cost functions in optimisation studies e. The project will initially use a conventional peripheral bypass graft configuration but later on will test the new optimisation criteria for other configurations too.
The proposed coating material will be delivered using a novel endovascular technique which uses an extra compliant flexible balloon microcatheter with coaxial lumens.

History of Technology Heroes and Villains - A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.
You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular. Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind.
Aristotle believed that knowledge should be gained by pure rational thought and had no time for mathematics which he regarded only as a calculating device.
The days of walking into a high street letting agent, taking hours to view a property, and searching a spreadsheet for a potential mortgage lender could be dwindling. From artificial intelligence AI to virtual reality, here are some of the ways that technology is shaking up the market. Virtual viewings Technology works best when it produces genuinely useful outcomes for companies and their customers. Matterport , an immersive media technology company, has created a camera that automates the creation of digital 3D models and produces VR experiences, floorplans and ultra high definition photography.

The scanner, which is around 10ft tall and 5ft wide, is already in use at the Manchester Arndale shopping centre and is being tested by fashion chain Peacocks, with other high street stores expected to follow suit.
It was new in July or August with Kingstonian fleet names. An Ian Allan fleetbook correct to January gives it as carrying its name. If you Google"B40UAG", the first result should give you a photo by the late Roy Marshall taken in Hull in and shows the name being carried between the windscreen wipers. Is that a remaining green gantry pole opposite Kingston Vets on the same side as the Apollo pub near the roundabout?
To the best of my knowledge, trolleybuses did not extend beyond Ings Road on the Holderness Road route after they directly replace the trams on this route in The green traction pole you refer to at Diadem Grove roundabout does indeed look like a former trolleybus pole.

Carol Vordernam on Tuesday wearing jeans that suit her shape Finding the perfect pair of jeans usually requires patience, luck and several frustrating hours behind a changing room curtain. But the process could soon become much simpler thanks to a revolutionary machine which helps women choose the right size, shape and cut. Previously available only in high-end shops, a 3D body scanner is being trialled on the high street — and promises to point shoppers to denim that fits and flatters.
With the help of shop staff, the image can then be used to identify jeans that are the ideal size and style. The scanner, which is around 10ft tall and 5ft wide, is already in use at the Manchester Arndale shopping centre and is being tested by fashion chain Peacocks, with other high street stores expected to follow suit. Debs Hatfield, style adviser at Manchester Arndale, said: The survey of 2, shoppers found that one in five women owns six pairs of jeans they no longer wear due to weight loss or gain.

Christmas pantomimes and shows Yes there were bits where the children laughed, Jimmy Krankie"s"He"s always pickin" on me" song was a particular highlight. And there are parts of the show that truly are spectacular. The underwater 3D scenes and the Rudolph and sleigh that come out of the stage and"fly" over the audience were amazing.

Add Comment The Djedi Project is not just the new mission to explore the pyramid shafts—it truly is the next generation in robotic archaeology. Through interviews and exchanges with the Djedi Project manager, Shaun Whitehead, as well as other team members, this article promises to be the resource for the published Djedi material to date. The mission had confirmed that the 20 x 20 cm blocking slab and the final section of U-block were made of a higher quality type of limestone than the rest of the shaft, most likely the fine limestone quarried at Tura rather than the rougher local yellow limestone.
The blocking slab and final U-block were also smoother and of higher craftsmanship than the rest of the shaft blocks. The Rover mission also confirmed that the blocking slab was affixed with two copper pins that were bent downward at a degree angle. Rover successfully drilled a small hole in the slab, about 2 cm in diameter, while inflicting as little damage as possible. It was fixed inside a rigid tube and had no tilt or pan capabilities—all it could do was look straight ahead.
