Dennis Zhou, a fifth-year BioEngineering Ph.D. student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, has been invited to attend the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, June 24-29, in Lindau, Germany.
Machine learning has been around for decades, but the advent of big data and more powerful computers has increased its impact significantly — moving machine learning beyond pattern recognition and natural language processing into a broad array of scientific disciplines.
Today, Georgia Tech announced that its College of Engineering has been selected to receive a $15 million endowment from the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation. The investment will establish the A.
When tasked with redesigning a medical device, four biomedical engineering majors focused their attention on scalpels. Specifically, the blade packaging for the tool.
The Kern Family Foundation has added the Georgia Institute of Technology to its growing partnership of universities that comprise the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN), all working to instill an entrepreneurial mindset in their students, inspiring undergraduate engineers to think cr
Robert J. Butera has been named as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) for a two-year term, which began on January 1, 2018 and will end on December 31, 2019.
The first direct comparison of in vitro and in vivo screening techniques for identifying nanoparticles that may be used to transport therapeutic molecules into cells shows that testing in lab dishes isn’t much help in predicting which nanoparticles will successfully enter the ce
Omer T. Inan has received an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award for his research project entitled “Wearable Assessment of Warfighter Blood Volume Status using Graph Mining Algorithms.”
There are a number of factors associated with the prolonged survival of patients with brain cancer. One of the most important involves the amount of tumor that is removed during surgery.
The mass pursuit of a conspicuous suspect in Alzheimer’s disease may have held back research success for decades.
The human brain, with its 100 billion chattering neurons, remains one of the great mysteries in medical science.
