Tom Barker to serve as new faculty advisor.
Disturbed patterns of blood flow induce lasting epigenetic changes to genes in the cells that line blood vessels, and those changes contribute to atherosclerosis, researchers have found.
Georgia Tech/Emory University biomedical engineering grad student is Health-Care Heroes finalist.
BBUGS Education and Outreach committee taking science off campus.
Torri Rinker experienced the ‘Eureka Effect’ as a high school freshman back in her hometown of Kennewick, Washington, and she’s been trying to share the mood ever since.
A scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology is piloting a new national initiative to make the U.S. the world leader in biomanufacturing of cell therapies – projected to be a $10 billion global industry within a decade.
Ashley Allen plans to take something special back with her to the Georgia Institute of Technology from her trip to Israel next fall, and it isn’t souvenirs.
This May, Warren Gray will be the first Atlanta student to graduate from the Global Biomedical Engineering (BME) joint Ph.D. program, a partnership of Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Peking University (PKU).
My first significant exposure to Immunology was in my first year of PhD at Johns Hopkins. In those days there were only 8-10 students admitted to the BME doctoral program at Hopkins and everyone had to go through the basic science curriculum in the medical school.
Dr. Kirk Kanter used to correct heart defects in the youngest children the way every other pediatric heart surgeon did.
Christian Rivera is one of approximately sixty graduate students nation-wide to receive a Ford Foundation Fellowship.
Two graduate students in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering have been named as Whitaker International Fellows and Scholars. Alice Cheng and James Wade will each be traveling abroad to broaden their research knowledge and learn new skills and techniques.

T-cells are the body’s sentinels, patrolling every corner of the body in search of foreign threats such as bacteria and viruses. Receptor molecules on the T-cells identify invaders by recognizing their specific antigens, helping the T-cells discriminate attackers from the body’s own cells.
Mohamad Ali Najia, an Honor's Program undergraduate in Georgia Tech’s Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, has earned the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship for his work in science and engineering.
The 10 graduate students are discussing stem cell population analysis, when it’s time. Before they can continue the discussion, Todd McDevitt, the instructor, has to do one thing — turn on the TV.
From time to time, living cells will accidently make an extra copy of a gene during the normal replication process. Throughout the history of life, evolution has molded some of these seemingly superfluous genes into a source of genetic novelty, adaptation and diversity.
When life on Earth was first getting started, simple molecules bonded together into the precursors of modern genetic material. A catalyst would have been needed, but enzymes had not yet evolved.
