Perhaps there’s no man at Georgia Tech who’s doing more to help prepare mankind for a green future than Art Ragauskas, professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded Georgia Tech a $2-million research grant to unravel the mechanical forces at play in lymphedema, a poorly understood disease with no cure and little hope for sufferers.
Researchers have discovered the details of how cells repair breaks in both strands of DNA, a potentially devastating kind of DNA damage.
Growing concern about bacterial resistance to existing antibiotics has created strong interest in new approaches for therapeutics able to battle infections.
Candela Rojas says she didn’t know anything about computer coding before last January. In fact, the freshman at Gwinnett County’s Lanier High School couldn’t even explain it.
Patrick McGrath, PhD, assistant professor in the School of Biology, has been chosen as an Ellison Medical Foundation New Scholar in Aging to study how complex genetics can influence the aging process in the small nematode C. elegans.
For the majority of cancer patients, it’s not the primary tumor that is deadly, but the spread or “metastasis” of cancer cells from the primary tumor to secondary locations throughout the body that is the problem.
The world’s most famous painting has now been created on the world’s smallest canvas. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have “painted” the Mona Lisa on a substrate surface approximately 30 microns in width – or one-third the width of a human hair.
Christopher James Ruffin, academic advisor for Georgia Tech’s Interdisciplinary BioEngineering Graduate Program, passed away on July 20, 2013.

Susan N. Thomas, PhD, assistant professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, has been named the 2013 Rita Schaffer Young Investigator by the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES).
Magnets could be a tool for directing stem cells’ healing powers to treat conditions such as heart disease or vascular disease.
Before scientists and engineers can realize the dream of using stem cells to create replacements for worn out organs and battle damaged body parts, they’ll have to develop ways to grow complex three-dimensional structures in large volumes and at costs that won’t bankrupt health care systems.
The Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University have selected Ravi V. Bellamkonda, a prominent biomedical scientist and engineer, to chair their joint department of biomedical engineering. He will begin as chair of the Wallace H.
What do swimmers like trout, eels and sandfish lizards have in common? According to a new study, the similar timing patterns that these animals use to contract their muscles and produce undulatory swimming motions can be explained using a simple model.
The Georgia university research community welcomed Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Thursday, May 30, 2013. On the heels of learning the specifics on how the sequestration will impact the NIH, Collins spent time with administrators and res
Eric Gaucher, associate professor in Georgia Tech's School of Biology, was named as one of 14 young faculty from seven nations to receive an early career grant by DuPont.
