Researchers have demonstrated an integrated technique for monitoring specific biomolecules – such as growth factors – that could indicate the health of living cell cultures produced for the burgeoning field of cell-based therapeutics.
Eva Dyer, a researcher in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at the Georgia Institute of Technology, is the recipient of a $175,000 award from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
A new screening process could dramatically accelerate the identification of nanoparticles suitable for delivering therapeutic RNA into living cells.
Annabelle Singer plans to develop, for the first time, a non-invasive way to drive neural activity with millisecond precision deep within the brain, while at the same time drafting the brain’s immune system to treat neurodegenerative diseases.
Shu Jia, assistant professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, is part of a team of researchers from three different institutions utilizing a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to focus on human cardiac opto-epigenetics.
Phil Santangelo, associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, knows that preventing both HIV and flu infections are two tremendous challenges in the field of infectious disease.
A new NIH-funded research center at Emory, Georgia Tech, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will assist inventors across the United States in developing and translating microelectronics-based point-of-care (POC) technologies for patient care.
Francisco Robles’ research sheds light and brings clarity to a microscopic world, and two recently published papers continue his lab’s ambitious goals to advance optical technologies that improve our understanding of biological processes.
Vince Calhoun, one of the world’s foremost experts in brain imaging and analysis, has been named the founding director of the Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science (TReNDS) at Georgia State University.
Like a diligent team of detectives, the researchers in Cassie Mitchell’s lab are busily gathering evidence to implicate what they believe is the chief suspect in Alzheimer’s disease, and now they have support from the Alzheimer’s Association to build their case, in the form of a three-year, $150,
Celltrion signed an “incubation” agreement with Emory University to jointly research and develop new drug candidates for atherosclerosis.
A couple of sugars, a dash of enzymes, a pinch of salt, a splash of a real common lab chemical, all arranged in watery baths.
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has performed Georgia’s first-ever procedure to place 3D-printed tracheal splints in a pediatric patient.
How does your brain talk with your arm? The body doesn’t use English, or any other spoken language. Biomedical engineers are developing methods for decoding the conversation, by analyzing electrical patterns in the motor control areas of the brain.
A team of students from the Wallace H.
Brianna Jones, a student in the Project ENGAGES program at the Georgia Institute of Technology, was featured recently on Atlanta radio station WABE 90.1 FM, a National Public Radio affiliate.
Sofía Hernández-Torres spent her summer working to optimize a testing device that will be used to measure muscle strength in mice that have an animal model of muscular dystrophy.
Ten freshmen are blazing a new trail and making history at the Georgia Institute of Technology as the inaugural cohort of students in one of the nation’s first two ESTEEMED programs, supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and designed to increase diversity in the biomedical research
Congratulations to the interdisciplinary teams awarded seed grants by the Regenerative Engineering and Medicine (REM) research center.
With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), scientists at Emory and Georgia Tech, Northwestern and the University of Chicago will use advanced “machine learning” techniques to decode the complex languages of the nervous system.
