The Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Journal is seeking nominations for the 2015 Young Innovators competition.
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have designed an optical device that may reduce the number of unnecessary biopsies by offering a fast, comprehensive, noninvasive and lower-cost solution to detect melanoma and other skin cancer lesions.
To highlight the best and brightest young faculty working in the area of cellular and molecular bioengineering, the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering journal published a special issue this month featuring 13 Young Innovators within the field.
A team of researchers at Louisiana Tech University has developed an innovative method for using affordable, consumer-grade 3D printers and materials to fabricate custom medical implants that can contain antibacterial and chemotherapeutic compounds for targeted drug delivery.
By finding a way to bind a slippery molecule naturally found in the fluid that surrounds healthy joints, Johns Hopkins researchers have engineered surfaces that have the potential to deliver long-lasting lubrication at specific spots throughout the body.
Four winning teams were announced in the Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) challenge, a biomedical engineering design competition for teams of undergraduate students. The judging was based on four criteria: the significance of the problem being addressed; the impact on clinical care; the innovation of the design; and the existence of a working prototype.
Biomedical Engineering Society regional conferences are schedule to take place at Clemson University and Wayne State University this fall.
Technology being developed at Duke University could one day let patients suffering from glaucoma stop using eye drops and instead get a painless injection at a doctor's office that could last months.
