Scientists who develop and refine diagnostics do more than work in a laboratory. Some take their disease-identifying tools into the field and try them out on a virus’s home turf.
This prototype’s novel approach uses magnetic nano-sized beads to filter deadly microbes and toxins from the bloodstream.
Researchers have found a way to engineer protein logic gates that sense, identify, and report on the presence of infectious agents without causing harm to the warfighter.
Meet the Scientists: Turning transparent things into reflective ones? Making materials move on their own? Who knew government chemical engineering could be so…cool.
Scientists are hoping to find a better way to cut down on bacterial biofouling to reduce the number of pathogens that service members have to face.
