Engineers have created a thin adhesive strip that could greatly improve the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy, a promising cancer treatment with fewer side effects than traditional chemotherapy.
Engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have figured out a cell-based approach to healing damaged muscle that could offer a more efficient method than those currently used.
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.
DNA delivered to cells via electrical pulses was first explored for creating new vaccines and is now being tested in the lab to produce disease-fighting proteins.
Platelet BioGenesis built a device that makes platelets. The process could revolutionize blood transfusions and cancer treatment.
Entrepreneurial engineer Robert Giasolli discusses the strategies he uses to successfully communicate with non-engineers on product design.
The world's smallest medical robot can help fight cancer and serve other functions that conventional surgical methods can’t.
A team of researchers at Ohio State University has built a nanochip that successfully reprogrammed skin cells into muscle and nerve cells, which could help to regenerate worn-out heart muscles, damaged nerves, deteriorated retina, or severely burnt skin.
Bioengineers from the University of California, San Diego have developed a nanosponge cloaked in white blood cells that can absorb inflammatory proteins, a new approach to treatment that may help patients better manage rheumatoid arthritis and ease their suffering.
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.
Researchers moved closer to solving problems with treating heart disease by developing ways to build tissues and parts of a human heart using human stem cells.
A new “cancer trap,” featuring a protein “bait” and a chemotherapeutic drug lying in wait, promises to catch and kill rogue cancer cells.
Nanoparticles designed with complementary chemical and mechanical forces improve the targeting of tumors with cancer-fighting drugs.
An artificial pancreas that releases both insulin and pramlintide, an analog of amylin, might offer better control during the after-meal period.
Engineers have developed a new process of 3D bioprinting tissues that uses multiple cell-based inks to create more realistic structures in less time than previous methods.
