Researchers have developed cardiac patches using gold nanowires, which could create parts of tissue whose cells beat in time, mimicking the way the natural heart muscle works.


Word of the Day
mitraille
  • Small missiles, especially grape, canister, fragments of iron, and the like, when fired, as upon an enemy at close quarters.
  • To fire mitraille at.
The word 'mitraille' comes from the Old French 'mitaille', meaning 'small coins', sometimes used to mean 'scrap iron'.
