Duke University biomedical engineers and genome researchers have developed a proof-of-principle approach using light to detect infections before patients show symptoms.
NC State researchers have developed a potential new weapon in the fight against cancer: a daisy-shaped drug carrier that's many thousands of times smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.
Biomedical engineering researchers have developed a drug delivery system consisting of nanoscale "cocoons" made of DNA that target cancer cells and trick the cells into absorbing the cocoon before unleashing anticancer drugs. ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- Cornell biomedical engineering students working with a Weill Cornell Medical College-affiliated psychiatrist have designed an electronic braking system for walkers.
(PhysOrg.com) -- New technology has made it possible for surgeons to reconstruct Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tears in young athletes without disturbing the growth plate.
(Phys.org) —Biomedical engineering researchers have developed an anti-cancer drug delivery method that essentially smuggles the drug into a cancer cell before triggering its release. The method can be likened to keeping ...
A new technique developed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute allows researchers to collect large amounts of biochemical information from nanoscale bone samples.
A new laser that can show what objects are made of could help military aircraft identify hidden dangers such as weapons arsenals far below.
(Phys.org) —One of humankind's biggest technological steps was the ability to print words on paper. Now, thanks to College of Engineering assistant professor Anming Hu, it's technology itself that is being printed.
A pathogen that attacks the small intestines of humans and animals is serving as the inspiration for developing robots that can fight disease and aid in military operations.
