A new device captures circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the blood stream, providing a new avenue for early detection of metastatic cancer, as well as opportunities to test the source of the cells or the effectiveness of ongoing treatment.
Tony Kim of Georgia Tech discusses his use of microchips and nanomaterials in atherosclerosis research.
Gain access to free tools and resources from AABME, an initiative designed to stimulate biomedical innovation by bringing together and providing resources to the biomedical engineering community.
Graphene-based neural sensors are showing promise in the treatment of brain disorders and injuries.
A manufacturer would never dream of creating a new airliner or vehicle part without first going through rigorous computational modeling. Prof. Alison Marsden, Stanford University, says this is how bioengineers should think and work as well, specifically when operating on our most vital organ, the heart.
Being able to sense a change in pressure on the brain after a traumatic brain injury would allow for swifter treatment that could stave off debilitating or fatal complications.
Researchers seeking to implant a biosensor within the small intestine are developing an implantation capsule robot that can be swallowed.
