If you have a promising technological innovation to improve patient care, than you might want to be in the Suddath Seminar Room in the Parker H. Petit Biotech Building this Tuesday, November 11, from 11 to noon.
The pointy things that most of us try to avoid hold a strange attraction for Candice Cheung who isn’t afraid of getting shots or giving blood. In fact, these experiences are almost like a field trip for the third-year student in the Wallace H.
DNA bricks keep getting larger. In 2012, a team of researchers at Harvard described their ability to make self-assembling structures –made completely out of DNA — that were about the size of viruses (80 nanometers across).
Last year, when President Barack Obama announced the BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) at the White House, Bob Guldberg and Craig Forest were in attendance, representing the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Elephant toothpaste was overflowing on the bio quad lawn while flash-frozen flowers shattered in shards on the pavement outside the U.A. Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Building. Inside the Parker H.
There were moments when the first Biomaterials Day at the Georgia Institute of Technology resembled a Vaudeville comedy routine, like when three of the top scientists in the field morphed into the Three Stooges for a few seconds while mugging for a photo, reflecting the festive side of an event t
Emily Evans plans to join the Peace Corps, and perhaps go on to become an emergency room trauma surgeon. But first, she’ll finish up her undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech.
Robert Butera and Lena Ting were there at the beginning, when neuroengineering started becoming a serious thing at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
A group of Georgia Tech researchers has demonstrated for the first time that improving how efficiently they re-route blood in patients born with complex heart abnormalities also improves how well those patients can exercise.
With two parents in the medical field and an older brother who attended Georgia Tech, Allison Kramer’s path toward becoming a biomedical engineer was forged early on.
A group of Georgia Tech researchers has discovered a new type of molecular interaction that could have important implications in preventing the spread of tumors and cancerous cells.
It’s taken a healthy dose of enlightened self-interest for Giuliana Salazar-Noratto to succeed as a mentor in the Petit Undergraduate Research Scholar program. She’s helping to guide a next generation scientist while becoming a better scientist in the process.
It’s Tuesday afternoon and the fourth floor of the U.A.
More than 500 Georgia Tech students turned out for the opportunity to meet with executives from industry-leading companies at the 10th annual Biotechnology Career Fair.
According to his 160-character bio on Twitter, undergraduate researcher Mohamad Ali Najia dreams of one day becoming the director of the National Institutes of Health.

Platelets, the tiny cell fragments whose job it is to stop bleeding, are very simple. They don’t have a cell nucleus. But they can “feel” the physical environment around them, researchers at Emory University and Georgia Tech have discovered.
Scientific research isn’t easy. It’s not supposed to be.
Two things you rarely see in the same sentence are “cheerleader” and “research scientist.” But right now, María Díaz Ortiz is equally comfortable being both of those things, balancing these two demanding roles at the Georgia Institute of Technology with the grace of a gymnast, which would only ma
A BME professor recently discovered how to use tiny glowing particles to detect malignant cancer cells. And he's turning his groundbreaking cancer-detection technology into a commercial venture.
