ASME TechCast: #2: How to Close the Engineering Communication Gap

In episode 2 of ASME TechCast, we explore the communication gap that often exists between engineers and their colleagues, especially clinicians and others in the biomedical industry. We also discuss the new lexicon that members of the Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME.org) are rolling out to help solve that problem.

WEBINAR: Biomanufacturing of Pluripotent Stem Cells and Their Differentiated Progenies in Integrated Bioprocesses

Cell therapy manufacturing is a new discipline where production of adult and pluripotent stem cell types are required for cell therapies. Several hundreds of clinical trials with adult mesenchymal stem cells for therapies such as auto-immune diseases, bone, cartilage repair and stroke are looking promising. For the pluripotent stem cell therapies, retinal pigment epithelial cells, pancreatic islet progenitors and neurons are being applied for treating blindness, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease in early stage clinical trials.
