New Metamaterial-Enhanced MRI Technology Successfully Tested on Human Subjects

New Metamaterial-Enhanced MRI Technology Successfully Tested on Human Subjects

Scientists from the Netherlands and Russia designed and tested a new metasurface-based technology for enhancing the local sensitivity of MRI scanners on human test subjects for the first time. The metasurface consists of thin resonant strips arranged periodically. Placed under a patient's head, it provides much higher image quality from the local brain region. The results, published in Scientific Reports, show that the use of metasurfaces can potentially reduce image acquisition time, make the procedure more comfortable for patients and acquire higher resolution images to allow diseases to be diagnosed at an earlier stage.

Technopark Resident Develops Technology for Accelerated Regeneration, Extended Wakefulness and Delayed Aging

Technopark Resident Develops Technology for Accelerated Regeneration, Extended Wakefulness and Delayed Aging

The company “ATG Service Gene”, a resident of ITMO University’s Technopark, has developed a technology that, in future, could be used to create drugs that could boost regeneration, prolong wakefulness, slow aging, relieve pain and treat cancerous tumors. This technology also has the potential to treat other illnesses, including infectious ones. It is based on gene-encoding proteins responsible for the organism’s therapeutic processes. It has the potential to stimulate the organism to produce an increased amount of material needed to cure an illness. Such gene encoding can even alter the structure of diseased cells thus causing them to self-destruct. The company is currently working on gene therapy drugs for this purpose.
