New Biomaterials Speed Trend Toward Smaller Medical Devices and Implants
Growth in the medical device industry has long been driven by innovation, and lately that innovation is coming from the desire to make devices and implants smaller. This trend is exemplified by the move to minimally invasive implants and techniques such as laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery. The approach leads to faster patient recovery times, less scarring (smaller devices mean the incision can be smaller, too), shorter hospitalization, and a lower total cost of care. New devices and techniques like these are driving medical device industry growth. The United States is the largest medical device market in the world,...

Building a better flu shot
(Michigan State University) Getting the flu shot can reduce the chances of infection. But, at best, the vaccine is only effective 40% to 60% of the time, according to the CDC. Now Michigan State University researchers have data that show how cellular RNA levels change following infection or vaccination. Their work could help make future flu vaccines work better or even aid in the design of a universal vaccine.

Anselm Kiefer: 'When I make a truly great painting, then I feel real'
Fifty years ago he outraged his fellow Germans with Nazi salutes. Now, at 74, the artist ’s epic canvases are exploring a different kind of darknessI arrive at White Cube in south London just as Anselm Kiefer is writing the title of his exhibition on a gallery wall.
