Smart Hospital: Healthcare rethought

Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you imagine the following? You come to the hospital. Artificial intelligence makes the diagnosis. Meanwhile, the attending physician operates the tablet, uses the latest communication technologies and networks all important instances with each other to ensure the best possible care for you. This could be the hospital of the future. What makes a Smart Hospital and how far we are from it, you can read in our Topic of the Month

Watching an embryo's neural tube close

Before a woman even realizes she's pregnant, an embryo will have already developed a neural tube, a hollow structure made of cells which will eventually become the brain and spinal cord. Now UH professor of biomedical engineering Kirill Larin will tackle the evolutionary anomaly of why the neural tube closes in most embryos but remains open in others, leading to birth defects

Simple test detects disease-carrying mosquitoes

It can also determine whether the bug has come into contact with a mosquito-control strategy known as Wolbachia.
