The evolving role of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in plastic surgery

December 28, 2020 – Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, which involves injecting a small amount of a patient’s own blood to release various growth factors from platelets, continues to increase in popularity. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has tracked the procedure since 2015 and reports a 25 percent increase in cosmetic PRP use in the […]

Compressive fluctuations heat ions in space plasma

Artificial intelligence improves control of powerful plasma accelerators — ScienceDaily

Researchers have used AI to control beams for the next generation of smaller, cheaper accelerators for research, medical and industrial applications. Experiments led by Imperial College London researchers, using the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Central Laser Facility (CLF), showed that an algorithm was able to tune the complex parameters involved in controlling the next […]
