Rutgers engineers have developed a breakthrough device that can significantly reduce the cost of sophisticated lab tests for medical disorders and diseases, such as HIV, Lyme disease and syphilis.
(Phys.org) —It's squishy, synthetic, flexible, mostly water and almost as tough as rubber. No, it's not "flubber"—it's a hydrogel, and now scientists at The University of Akron are exploring new biomedical uses for this ...
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. ...
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.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Cornell biomedical engineering students working with a Weill Cornell Medical College-affiliated psychiatrist have designed an electronic braking system for walkers.
(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 laser that can show what objects are made of could help military aircraft identify hidden dangers such as weapons arsenals far below.
A new technique developed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute allows researchers to collect large amounts of biochemical information from nanoscale bone samples.
(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.
