A new process of running sound waves through blood samples could make cancer diagnosis and treatment quicker and easier.
For the first time in medical history, a team of researchers has grown and sustained blood stem cells in a bioreactor. The resulting cells could replace painful bone marrow transplants used to produce hematopoietic cells in patients suffering from leukemia and other blood cancers.
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 looking through the transparent wings of a longtail glasswing butterfly found inspiration to create nanostructures coatings for an implantable eye pressure sensor that could help patients with glaucoma retain their sight.
A new approach to transplanting insulin-producing islet cells offers new hope for diabetics who cannot manage their disease with regular insulin injections.
MIT researchers developed a quantitative framework that enables them to replicate biomechanical performance of prosthetic feet, a new approach that could lead to inexpensive mass-production of the prosthesis.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia created a ‘smart stent’ empowered with sensors that can monitor and provide real-time feedback on blood flow to help decrease restenosis or the narrowing of arteries.
Engineers convert a regular desktop 3D printer into a bioprinter for a fraction of the cost
Using an intermediate adaptor cell gives clinicians more control over dosage and reverses a potentially fatal side effect of CAR T-cell therapy.
MIT scientists have developed a prototype device that allows chemotherapy patients to test their white blood cell levels without pricking a finger or taking a blood sample.
A new device called Fiberscope could help scientists with their searches by giving them a less-invasive look into the brain’s depths.
Georgia Tech researchers have developed a way to remotely activate the modified T cells from outside the body using a near-infrared laser that very precisely targets cancerous tumors.
Scientists and bioengineers are warming up to cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM), an ultra-low-temperature technique for visualizing the atomic-level inner workings of human cells and other applications.
Researchers from the University of Connecticut have fabricated a new biodegradable composite from strands of silk fibroin, the foundational element of spider and moth silk, to replace the metal plates and screws currently used by orthopedists to help repair broken load-bearing bones.
An international team has grown up to 20,000 vascularized liver buds at a time and reversed liver failure in 60 percent of mice that received the implants.
