For the 2015-2016 academic year, nine new faculty have joined Georgia Tech and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering. Please welcome the following faculty:
Georgia Tech scientists and engineers, in collaboration with Emory University, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Marcus Autism Center, are tackling one of the biggest challenges in pediatric medicine — the lack of medical devices and technologies designed specifically for children.
In the race to save lives, researchers know that understanding and fighting diseases requires a new method of doing things.
The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory moved up one spot (to third) in U.S.
Tech’s latest interdisciplinary research facility, the Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB), is now open and illuminated on 10th Street. The past several months have been a flurry of activity as researchers and faculty members relocated into the new space and started breathing life into it.
Six Georgia Tech biomedical engineering (BME) students won the best design category among teams developing solutions for an improved epidural delivery system.
The potential of a gene-silencing technique called RNA interference has long enticed biotechnology researchers. It’s used routinely in the laboratory to shut down specific genes in cells. Still, the challenge of delivery has held back RNA-based drugs in treating human disease.
The Georgia Institute of Technology is pleased to announce the appointment of three new Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) Eminent Scholars — Deepak Divan, Stanislav Emelianov, and Ravi Kane — bringing the Institute’s total of GRA Eminent Scholars to 22.
The dose makes the poison. Emory cardiovascular researcher Kathy Griendling, Ph.D., was one of the first scientists to show how reactive oxygen species, once thought to be poisonous byproducts of metabolism, are essential cellular signals needed for life.
Within multicellular organisms, no cell is an island, entire of itself. On the contrary, cells are interconnected members of a tightly knit community.
Optogenetics provides a powerful tool for studying the brain by allowing researchers to activate neurons using simple light-based signals.
Stanislav (Stas) Emelianov has been appointed as the Joseph M. Pettit Chair in Microelectronics and as a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar. He is based in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering with a joint appointment in the Wallace H.
The Department of Bio and Brain Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), and Georgia Tech and Emory’s Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) held a two day biomedical engineering workshop June 8 and 9 in Daejeon, South Korea.
Robert Mannino and Yichen “Payne” Wang are like a couple of MacGyvers in the realm of scientific research. Like the famous TV secret agent, they’ve managed to address a complex problem with ordinary items.
The Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience has grown by one world-class researcher with the recent addition of Ravi Kane to its multidisciplinary community of scientists and engineers.
The Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience has added three new faculty members. Joining the multidisciplinary community of researchers are Flavio Fenton, Gabe Kwong and Hua Wang.
A new fabrication technique that produces platinum hollow nanocages with ultra-thin walls could dramatically reduce the amount of the costly metal needed to provide catalytic activity in such applications as fuel cells.
Nine Georgia Tech and Emory University biomedical research projects have been chosen to receive funding from the Coulter Translational Research Partnership Program.
Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering recognized Tracie Dinkins with this year’s Hero Award. Dinkins is the financial manager for the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME). She was one of three staff members recognized for exceptional service to the college.
Stem cells are the foundation of an organism’s normal growth and development, serving as a biological repair system for the body, shape shifters that can turn into other types of cells through a process called “differentiation.”
