A system that uses focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain-barrier at precise locations for the delivery of drugs in response to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other central nervous system diseases. – Columbia University
A new microtool that can identify antigen-specific monoclonal antibodies from within millions of individual bacterial and mammalian cells. – Dublin City University
A 3D-printing technology that can embed electronics within components by laying strand materials (copper, optical fibres, or alloys) in the X, Y and Z axes as the part is being built. – The University of Sheffield
A smart molecule that changes colour in milliseconds when exposed to UV light, reverting to colourless when the UV source is removed. – Curtin University
Compounds that prevent leaves from drying up and wilting by controlling stomatal opening/closing: a chemical, rather than genetic-based approach that means the technology can be applied across species. – Nagoya University
A new process to produce quantum dots (nano-sized semiconductor particles) with highly consistent shapes and sizes. – University of Utah
A new sensor system for the point-of-care testing of infectious diseases with specially designed image processing and recognition algorithms, and integrated machine learning. – The University of Hong Kong
An additive manufacturing system designed to create lightweight materials with tunable physical properties by patterning hollow structures within the components. – University of California, Irvine
The identification of two connections between the microbiome and genome: 1) that variations in behaviour (memory and performance) and immune phenotypes are linked to abundant levels of specific microbes; 2) and specific links between host genetics and gut microbial composition. – Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
A proprietary technology that can cross intracellular barriers (membranes) with high efficiency and low toxicity, complemented with an expertise in delivering genes and siRNA. – University of Greenwich
