MSK developed sensor detects molecular signature of cancer; compared to human scent

Mijin Kim and Daniel Heller of the Nanomedicine Lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center have developed an array of carbon nanotube sensors that can “sniff” cancer using AI. The human nose can detect a trillion different scents, through hundreds of olfactory receptors. The pattern which odor molecules bind to which receptors creates a kind […]

AI – optimized glioblastoma chemotherapy

Pratik Shah, Gregory Yauney,  and MIT Media Lab researchers have developed an AI  model that could make glioblastoma chemotherapy regimens less toxic but still effective. It analyzes current regimens and iteratively adjusts doses to optimize treatment with the lowest possible potency and frequency toreduce tumor sizes. In simulated trials of 50 patients, the machine-learning model […]

Hydrogen peroxide sensor to determine effective chemotherapy

MIT’s Hadley Sikes has developed a sensor that determines whether cancer cells respond to a particular type of chemotherapy by detecting hydrogen peroxide inside human cells. The technology could help identify new cancer drugs that boost levels of hydrogen peroxide, which induces programmed cell death. The sensors could also be adapted to screen individual patients’ […]
