Let’s talk about how we can work together to advance bioengineering.
Prosthetics are moving beyond simple mechanical functions and are becoming part of the human body itself.
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.
Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles bioengineering department developed a tissue-based soft robot that resembles a stingray. The research is being used to transform regenerative medicine, as well as diagnostics and robotic systems that could function within the human body.
Dr. Patrick Hanley, assistant research professor of pediatrics in the Center for Cancer and Immunology research at the Children’s Research Institute in Washington D.C. and director of the Good Manufacturing Practices cell therapy laboratory at Children’s National Health System, on the new developments in the design and manufacturing for T cell therapies. He discussed ways in which technology can help simplify the methodologies and bring consistency and scalability to cell manufacturing.
More bioengineers are taking a serious look at how virtual and augmented reality tools, like Microsoft's HoloLens can expand their design capabilities, especially for medical imaging and computation, simulations, and implants and devices.
Georgia Tech Engineers created an organization to develop standards and production processes designed to mass produce life-saving cell-based therapeutics at affordable prices. Via AABME.
A new ultrasound technique that manipulates immune cells from outside the body could be the future of cancer care.
Duke University researchers have created human heart muscle in the laboratory, and successfully grown it large enough to provide a patch that contracts and transmits electrical signals.
Researchers discover new molecular linker that orients targeting antibodies to help nucleic-acid filled particles reach target cells via AABME
A new exoskeleton spine brace promises to offer children and teens with scoliosis more mobility and comfort than traditional braces.
Albert Manero, President of Limbitless Solutions, describes the groundbreaking work he and his team are doing in the fields of prosthetics and bionics, work that includes a brush with fame in the form of a certain Marvel superhero.
To a surgeon, a useful model organ needs to be more than a rigid plastic curio. It needs the feel of the real thing if it’s to be any good for practice. Now researchers have created a 3D printed organ with the elasticity of flesh and blood.
Testing drugs against patients’ cancer cells—without subjecting patients to chemotherapy—could lead to better, faster treatment.
A new breakthrough in anti-aging research could lead to gene and stem cell therapies that turn back the hands of time.
