Track topics announced for Frontiers in Medical Devices Conference

Track titles for the 2016 BMES/FDA Frontiers in Medical Devices Conference ''Innovations in Modeling and Simulation: Patient-Centered Healthcare'' have been announced.

Research Spotlight: Integrating a flipped lecture into a laboratory course

The flipped classroom model allows for active student learning by 'reversing' the traditional classroom structure. The content traditionally delivered inside the classroom (i.e. lectures) is recorded and provided to students online, while the in-class time is dedicated to identifying knowledge gaps and problem-solving.

Laurencin launches Regenerative Engineering and Translational Medicine journal

BMES Fellow and Board Member Cato Laurencin (UConn) is pleased to announce the launch of Regenerative Engineering and Translational Medicine (RETM), published by Springer and the newly formed Regenerative Engineering Society.

BMES members land $5.4 million DARPA research award

BMES members Zhongming Liu and Matthew Ward will be part of a team selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop an implantable, nerve stimulating ''bionode'' to treat inflammation.

Study could lead to new therapies to treat coronary artery disease

A recent study published in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering suggests ''a new paradigm whereby the safety of drug eluting stents can be optimized through the use of resorbable biocompatible coating materials with resorption kinetics that coincide with the dissociation and tissue elimination of receptor-bound drug.''

Grande-Allen named Deputy Editor-in-Chief for ABME journal

The Annals of Biomedical Engineering announced that Jane Grande-Allen will serve as a Deputy Editor-in-Chief for the journal.

Langer awarded Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering

Queen Elizabeth II presented BMES Fellow, Robert Langer with The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering for his work in the field of Biomedical Engineering, according to an announcement from Buckingham Palace.
