Every year, Australia's S***box Rally sees our worst cars travelling across the desert to raise funds for cancer research. Team Rally the Future shows us their entry -- the Connected Car.
An MIT team has developed a paper stick that could someday be used as an inexpensive and accurate way to detect a range of cancers. It holds particular promise for the developing world.
Using computational modeling, a team of doctors and engineers are working together to create a quicker, less-expensive way to help diagnose prostate cancer.
It's been tested on only a handful of kids, but using MRI with a diagnostic dye to look for cancer may work just as well as using PET and CT scans.
Instead of relying on drugs to kill tumors, Georgia Tech researchers engineer artificial pathways to lure malignant cells to their death, using a "Pied Piper" approach to treating cancer.
It may not be surprising that appealing to our vanity works better than a biology lecture, but the extent to which the approach increases sunscreen use is sizable.
Cancer Research UK has launched a mobile game for iOS and Android that crowdsources cancer research.
When it comes to detecting cancer, ultrasound is simply too low-res to compare with CT scans and MRIs. Up the resolution, though, and the less expensive, radiation-free alternative could become an ideal alternative.
Without any screening tests, pancreatic cancer is rarely diagnosed early, and has become the fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. Steve Jobs died of it at the age of 56 in 2011.
Scientists at the Chonnam National University in South Korea have developed a microscopic robot that can detect and treat cancer from inside the body.
