Five researchers from the Technical University of Eindhoven have recently started the spinoff Juno. Together they’re working on an ‘incubator 2.0’, which should give extremely premature babies a bigger chance of survival. By using an underwater artificial uterus they hope to give a baby’s organs a better chance of developing.
Juno is a part of a European consortium, which got 2.9 million euros in European subsidiaries in 2019 to develop an artificial uterus. They hope to have a user-friendly design that is in use in the coming 10 years.
