TREM2 is a transmembrane receptor expressed in cells of the myeloid lineage, and its association with Alzheimer's disease supports the involvement of immune and inflammatory pathways in the cause of the disease, rather th...

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a growing wave of change that brings several new challenges to design engineers across all industries and markets. While it is a somewhat nebulous concept, IoT is broadly defined as a network of smart devices that communicate with one another wirelessly, with little-to-no direct human interaction. In general, physicians and patients are becoming more accepting of medical treatment methods that offer the best opportunity for patients to live a normal life. Human contact will always be an important part in all medical treatment, but the development of smart medical devices, systems, an...
