Welcome to the body parts shop… would you like to place an order?

Professor Alexander Seifalian There aren’t many scientists who have grown human cells on the back of a butterfly wing, but Alexander is one of them! Professor Alexander Seifalian (UCL Centre for Nanotechnology & Regenerative Medicine) and his team are aiming to make organ donation a thing of the past, combining nano-composite materials with stem cell technologies for the growth of replacement organs. He used his discoveries to fight for the life of a young Icelandic man whose throat was destroyed by cancer. Given two weeks to live, Alexander set out to build for the man the world’s first artificial windpipe, made from nanomaterials and stem cells – and succeeded

'Nano-anesthesia: New approach to local anesthesia?

A technique using anesthesia-containing nanoparticles — drawn to the targeted area of the body by magnets — could one day provide a useful alternative to nerve block for local anesthesia in patients, suggests an experimental study in the April issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia, official journal of the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS). “We have established proof of principle that it is possible to produce ankle block in the rat by intravenous injection of magnetic nanoparticles associated with ropivacaine and magnet application at the ankle,” write Dr Venkat R.R

This smart nano-tech patch knows when you need more drugs

Outside of smartwatches, wristbands, and smart eyewear, wearable technology is making waves in the medical community. For example, weve already heard about health-monitoring tattoos, which can tell doctors about how your heart, muscles, or brain are functioning. The next evolutionary step could be similar smart patches, developed using nano technology, which not only deliver drugs into your system, but know when youve had enough or need a higher dose.
