Overarching Challenge: How does one identify SERM (i.e. estrogen-like) molecules based upon quantum fundamentals? A pharmacophore is that set of properties, carried within a molecular framework, responsible for a drug’s biological activity.

The world has a plastic problem. Humans are responsible for 32 million tons of plastic litter per year that is disposed of incorrectly and ends up directly on the ground and in waterways. That’s the weight of the entire population of Botswana, as plastic trash,

Heart failure is global pandemic with nearly 30 million sufferers worldwide causing not only significant mortality but also diminished quality of live and a huge cost burden to individual and healthcare systems.

There has been a lot of hype over Elon Musk’s Hyperloop. It is a partially-evacuated solid-steel tube in which small-diameter passenger vehicles (pods) travel at high speed.

It has a number of problems. Rescuing passengers in an emergency would involve cutting the heavy steel tube.

At Narbis, our mission is to improve people’s lives by helping them to get the most from their brains through the use of safe, affordable, consumer friendly technology that delivers lasting results.

Tinnitus is described as the perception of sound in the absence of real acoustic stimulation. Tinnitus may be perceived in one or both ears. Despite various theories, the cause is not fully understood. According to the American Tinnitus Association, over 45 million Americans struggle with tinnitus,

Advanced Bionics (AB) is currently receiving global approval of their HiRes™ Ultra 3D Cochlear Implant. This new cochlear implant (CI) device allows patients to have uninhibited access to an MRI scan.

1 in 10 patients undergo an MRI scan every year in most developed markets.

Creating the world’s first 3D printed recycled plastic composite bicycle and e-bike.
Due to the pandemic and subsequent social distancing guidelines, the UK population’s attitude to transportation has changed. The bicycle and e-bike have become a new model of healthy transport for many. Halfords, The UK’

Our design incorporates an ultraviolet (UV) light matrix composed of multiple wavelengths that target pathogens and aim to disinfect surfaces, air, and water. UV light exposure will assist the current cleaning protocol without the added effects of harmful solvent-based cleaning solutions.

Autonomous vehicles are providing a new layer of occupant security while driving. The cornerstone of the research in autonomous vehicles relies on the effective use and interpretation of sensor data. Consequently, limitations such as weather disruptions can make sensors to be unreliable and cause severe accidents. To address this,
