First 3-D platform for simulating zebrafish behavior may replace animals in some research
Every year, approximately 20 million animals are used in scientific research. Increasingly these animals are zebrafish, which are quickly eclipsing rodents and primates as a favored species in biomedical research because of their genetic similarity to humans and their versatility. However, concerns voiced by policymakers, citizens, and scientific authorities about the number of animals used in experiments have led researchers to explore alternative, computer-based methodologies that could help reduce animal usage without compromising results.

A toolkit for transformable materials
Researchers have developed a general framework to design reconfigurable metamaterials. The design strategy is scale independent, meaning it can be applied to everything from meter-scale architectures to reconfigurable nano-scale systems such as photonic crystals, waveguides and metamaterials to guide heat.

Blood-repellent materials: A new approach to medical implants
(Colorado State University) Medical implants like stents, catheters and tubing introduce risk for blood clotting and infection -- a perpetual problem for many patients.Colorado State University engineers offer a potential solution: A specially grown, 'superhemophobic' titanium surface that's extremely repellent to blood. The material could form the basis for surgical implants with lower risk of rejection by the body.
