The researcher from Madrid had worked in video games and fashion before the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation signed her up. Her experiences in machine learning and behavioral prediction models will help to improve the learning apps used by midwives in resource-poor countries. The goal is to reduce maternal and infant deaths during pregnancy and childbirth.

Diagnostic imaging equipment has improved the resolution of its results and reduced the radiation patients receive, but the main advance has been in contrast agents. Using dye- or nano-antibody-‘decorated’ nanoparticles that circulate in the blood vessels, the scientific community is working to detect cancer and metastasis early and see if the treatment works.

Towards an early diagnosis through hearing capacity

Almost 10% of the world population suffers dyslexia. Establishing an early diagnosis would allow the development of training programs to palliate this disorder. We now may be nearer to reaching this goal thanks to a study carried out by the Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL), associating auditory processing in children to their reading skills. The results offer a new approach for detecting the risk before the children learn to read.
