Undergraduates in biomedical engineering created an improved "wye" that connects airway tubes for infants during surgery. They've applied for a provisional patent.
The problem-solving abilities of 64 teams of students will be on display Friday. The projects run the gamut from assistive devices to analytical tools, from surgical aids to a radiation shield.
The Forward BIO Institute institute aims at making Wisconsin a Midwestern hub of the ongoing merger of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and cutting-edge tissue engineering.
When Kaivalya Molugu was considering graduate schools, she knew she was interested in stem cell research, but she had to decide where to apply. The answer soon became clear: the place where it all began.
An international team of researchers has shown in mice that a healthy gut microbiome is important for recovery after a heart attack.
UW–Madison researchers have invented an all-chemical replacement for the confusing, even dangerous materials, now used to grow stem cells.
Scientists get funded for their ideas through a marathon grant-writing process, scores of collaborators, weeks of information gathering and a final product that often tops 250 pages. Melissa Skala’s experience was different: two people, 250 words, in 24 hours.
One of regenerative medicine's applications "is the ability to create human tissues and watch diseases occur in a dish, which is extremely powerful for developing new therapies,” says Randolph Ashton, a professor of biomedical engineering.
University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers have developed methods to observe gene editing in action, and they’re putting those capabilities to work to improve genetic engineering techniques.
