Let’s talk about how we can work together to advance bioengineering.
Ronald Zuckermann, director of the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and his colleagues have created a two-dimensional sugar-coated nanosheet that mimics the surface of cells and, in doing so, can selectively target pathogens like viruses and bacteria.
Gain access to free tools and resources from AABME, an initiative designed to stimulate biomedical innovation by bringing together and providing resources to the biomedical engineering community.
It’s no secret that most biomedical firms today use modeling to make research and development decisions. What remains to be seen is how to take modeling, within companies and among regulatory agencies, to the next level.
Researchers are bringing together the fields of robotics, mechatronics, and medicine to create heart therapies such as a pacemaker powered by kinematic energy.
Scientists at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have transformed CRISPR into a powerful mutation surveillance and disease prevention tool.
Medical device makers lag other industries in their use of computer models. One of the big issues discussed at AABME CONNECT is how much can researchers, regulators, and engineers trust their models and simulation?
After a decade of work in his lab at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Eric Betzig has developed a microscope that presents an unprecedented picture of subcellular activity in 3D living color.
A new device captures circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the blood stream, providing a new avenue for early detection of metastatic cancer, as well as opportunities to test the source of the cells or the effectiveness of ongoing treatment.
Fashion and engineering combine in the work of Molly Fuller, Molly Fuller Design, to create comforting compression clothing to alleviate the symptoms of autism.
Longstanding issues with traditional colonoscopies have led a medical device company to engineer a better solution—a simpler, single-use endoscope that is more flexible, more controllable, and less likely to result in injury or infection.
Engineers and physicians have developed a camera inspired by a butterfly’s eye to distinguish between tumors and healthy tissue in breast cancer patients. The system could help surgeons detect and remove cancerous tissue more effectively than current technologies.
Dr. Conor Walsh, professor of engineering at the John A. Paulson Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and a member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, discusses his work with soft, wearable robotics.
Columbia University researchers recently generated beating cardiac tissue from induced pluripotent stem cells, human cells that are able to differentiate into nearly any cell type. Using physical conditioning, the researchers produced samples with the hallmarks of mature heart tissue with just four weeks of cell culture. The work paves a concrete pathway to functional heart-on-a-chip platforms.
Columbia University engineers use a soft mesh scaffold to produce a dramatically higher amount of functional T cells from blood taken from leukemia patients.
