When people think of getting treatment for organs and brain injuries, what usually might come to mind is invasive surgical procedures; some of which are risky and scary. Well scientists at Ohio State University have created a chip that may help with certain injuries in a simple and non-invasive way. The chip is simply placed on the skin and is electrically charged. In turn, the charge changes the genetic code of the skin cells under it. These altered cells can then be used to repair other cells throughout the body. The process takes only a few seconds and has been tested on mice so far. They plan to do human testing in 2018. If all goes well, this could be a revolutionary procedure in the healthcare field. Check out the short video below to learn a little bit more about the chip!
