Students entering the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Georgia Tech and Emory for the first time are the vanguard of a new reality for higher education, an age of virtual learning and hybrid classes, an answer to a global pandemic.
Alima Ballo, who is immersed in her first semester as a student in the Wallace H. Coulter of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University after transferring from Montgomery (Maryland) College, spent her summer engaged in a new virtual reality.
The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University moved up two slots, from No. 4 to No. 2, in U.S.
Cassie Mitchell, assistant professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, was named winner of the 2020 Faculty Diversity Champion Award at the 12th annual Diversity Symposium at Georgia Tech.
The resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is a global challenge that has been exacerbated by the financial burdens of bringing new antibiotics to market and an increase in serious bacterial infections as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, an interdisciplinary group of College of Sciences researchers teamed up with colleagues in the College of Engineering and quickly pivoted away from their normal research areas – astrobiology, the evolution of RNA and DNA, the role of proteins in diseases
Joe Le Doux, professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory (BME), has been appointed executive director for learning and training.
David Frakes, associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, has a brand-new biomedical engineering lab, and it might currently be sitting empty, but he has big plans for it.
The natural processes of wound or bone healing rely on the growth of new blood vessels, or angiogenesis. If someone breaks a bone, it is standard practice to apply a cast and immobilize the broken bone, so that healing can proceed without mechanical distortion.
Don Giddens has never been particularly fond of inertia, as it applies to himself or his long career as a leader in academic research.
When COVID-19 causes acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), damaging lung tissue, the affected areas are unable to efficiently uptake blood oxygen, which leads to diminished of lung function.
The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) awards Fellow status to members who had demonstrated exceptional achievement while maintaining a consistent record of participation within the society.
