In diseases such as malaria and sickle cell disease, red blood cells break down, with harmful effects on the rest of the body – particularly the lining of small blood vessels.
Six graduate students were honored at this year’s fourth annual BME Graduate Awards event hosted by the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory.
They came with their gadgets, their gizmos, and devices. They used algorithms, calculations, and scientific exercises.
The ability to engineer the body’s immune system has transformed human health, the most recent and dramatic example being the development of T-cell therapies for cancer.
This year’s Cisco Global Problem Solver Prize was won by Robert Mannino and Prateek Mittal, two students from Georgia Tech, for Mannino’s smartphone app that measures blood hemoglobin levels.
April 19, 2018 – Peng Qiu is an associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, as well as a researcher in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech.
The 13th annual International Symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease was held April 12-13 at Emory University, where the latest discoveries and most current research was shared in the Health Science Building, home to the Wallace H.
A remote command could one day send immune cells on a rampage against a malignant tumor. The ability to mobilize, from outside the body, targeted cancer immunotherapy inside the body has taken a step closer to becoming reality.
Every year, Women in Engineering (WIE) at Georgia Tech presents two awards to engineering faculty members who have had a special impact on students’ lives through their teaching excellence and by going the extra mile to encourage and support the students’ success.
Andrew Cox might be the newly elected Graduate Student Government Association (Grad SGA) president. But, thanks to a recent trip to Washington, D.C., he’s already had a chance to dip his toe into the political pond.
