Flexible LED Sensor Monitors Blood-Oxygenation Levels Through Skin

Recently developed by UC Berkeley researchers, this flexible sensor can be placed on the skin to measure levels of blood oxygenation over a large area. Traditionally, finger-clip oximeters have been used but that technology depends on how much light makes

Nanoparticles may be able to fight cancer

Washington University researchers have been working with mice models to test the ability of nanoparticles to kill cancer cells. These particles are activated by light and can be used anywhere in the body rather than just places that are accessed
