Our understanding of the human body is always evolving; informed by new research and scientific development. In-line with this, technological advances are extending the realms of possibility.
Anti-microbial resistance, the epidemic spread of viruses and chronic respiratory diseases caused by air pollution are some of the most significant global health risks. Biomedical Scientists are working on viable solutions to address these challenges. Are you captivated by the possibility of making potentially life-changing discoveries?
Current breakthroughs in healthcare
The mercury thermometer and stethoscope were amazing discoveries of their time. They enabled a quick assessment of a patient’s condition. Fast-forward to the 21st century and biomedical scientists are developing smart, wearable devices which monitor patients 24/7 and provide early diagnosis of health issues.
Biomedical Scientists are also using 3D printing to create prosthetics; they are realising the benefits of Mitral Valve surgery and exploring the potential of engineered body tissues. This is a tiny sample of the progressive innovations that are being tested for their ability to protect patient’s health, reduce risks and provide life-changing cures.
