UH Professor Kaushik Rajashekara discusses the real possibilities of flying cars.

Seeking Delphi, a podcast dedicated to futurist issues, recently released episode No. 27 titled “Future of Driving Part 2, Flying Cars with Kaushik Rajashekara.”

“Whenever I’m in traffic, I wish I had a flying car,” Rajashekara said. Except in his case, it’s not merely wishful thinking.

Researchers from the University of Houston and Baylor College of Medicine are developing a new technology to allow simultaneous imaging of both embryonic structural development and the molecular underpinnings that occur in the developing circulatory system.

Better Understanding Could Lead to New Prevention and Treatment for Birth Defects

 

Soon after conception, an embryo’s circulatory system connects to that of its mother. Complications that occur at this critical time can result in miscarriage or birth defects with long-term chronic conditions. Unfortunately, limitations in imaging technologies prevent researchers from fully understanding the cellular-level events leading up to this crucial point.

Imaging Technology Will Offer New Clues to Embryonic Development
