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.
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.
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.
Lyndra Therapeutics released its first clinical results based on a single capsule that delivers a steady, week-long supply of Alzheimer's medication.
Researchers used cells to build and test a disc replacement with the strength and flex of a native disc, paving the way for human use.
Handheld BioPen filled with stem cells grows bone and cartilage to heal failing joints
A new organ-on-a-chip device confirms that damage to the intestinal barrier triggers gut inflammation, which could lead to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Engineers develop the first bioelectronic medicine—an implantable device that stimulates nerve regeneration with electrical pulses. Once the nerve heals, the device disintegrates and the body absorbs it without toxic side effects.
