Let’s talk about how we can work together to advance bioengineering.
Scientists use nano or microneedles to provide quicker diagnosis of major illness.
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.
Surgeons in January implanted the first ever 3D-printed titanium spinal device into a patient to correct spinal problems.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, created a 3D-printed spinal cord implant that help heal spinal injuries and markedly restores neural functioning. The implant shields neural progenitor cells while also directing orderly growth of axons.
Korean researchers find simpler way to discover which bacteria can produce the highest concentration of a valuable chemical intermediate.
Biomedical engineers experiment with nano DNA origami on mice to eventually prevent acute kidney failure in humans.
Biomedical engineers develop self-cleaning glaucoma implant that could prevent blockage, improve eye treatment.
The ovipositor of a parasitic wasp inspires a mechanical engineer and zoologist to design a new steerable needle for surgery.
Scientists have created nano tweezers that extract single molecules from cells without destroying them. The device should help researchers study the inner workings of cells in real-time.
Engineers have tested a design for synthetic grafts that mimics the active wrinkling of natural arteries, a movement that helps to reduce the risk of thrombosis.
Wearable device helps frogs regrow amputated limbs.
Engineers at Virginia Tech have created a new methodology for building bacteria-resistant surfaces for medical devices and other applications that prevent infection and could save lives.
Fatigue failure is a possible failure mode for any product that experiences cyclic loading. Although it is a common concern in product design, fatigue failure is particularly insidious in implantable medical devices where a fatigue fracture may have lethal clinical consequences. Learn more in this webinar featuring Thomas Secord, University of St. Thomas, and previously of Medtronic. Dr. Secord's work has addressed many aspects of structural design, accelerated testing, and regulatory considerations for implantable devices.
Lyndra Therapeutics released its first clinical results based on a single capsule that delivers a steady, week-long supply of Alzheimer's medication.
