Imagine trying to eavesdrop on the human brain, with its complex, chattering galaxy of 86 billion neurons, each one connected to thousands of other neurons, holding cellular conversations through more than 100 trillion synaptic connections.
The community of researchers at the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience is closing in on 200 with the addition of seven new faculty members, including four from the Wallace H.
The 25th annual Suddath Symposium was devoted, for the first time, to neuroscience research. The two-day event (Feb. 21-22) featured speakers from across the country and both sides of the Atlantic – some of the world’s thought-leaders in the budding field.
A new research report from Stanford University highlights a high performance brain-to-computer interface that can enable people with paralysis to type words and messages with much higher performance than has previously been demonstrated.
The Georgia Institute of Technology will play a key role in a new public-private partnership to help establish best practices and eventual industry-wide standards for the production of therapies using living cells to treat a range of conditions.

Two faculty, Machelle Pardue and Peng Qiu, in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory have been awarded tenure—a significant career milestone.
Johnna Temenoff is only jesting a little when she describes her lab’s recent collaboration with two other labs at the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience.
This year, the Tamils’ Information journal, based in Toronto, (Ontario) Canada, has presented its Tamils’ Information Lifetime Achievement Award to Ajit Yoganathan, Ph.D. Yoganathan is currently the Wallace H. Coulter Distinguished Faculty Chair and a Regents’ Professor in the Wallace H.
Using tiny snippets of DNA as “barcodes,” researchers have developed a new technique for rapidly screening the ability of nanoparticles to selectively deliver therapeutic genes to specific organs of the body.
Historically speaking, women have been underrepresented in professions heavy in science technology, engineering, and mathematics (the STEM fields). You wouldn’t know it to look at the 2017 class of Petit Undergraduate Research Scholars.
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the pending inductions of Edward Botchwey, Jaydev Desai, Sathya Gourisankar, and Machelle Pardue to its College of Fellows.
Balakrishna Pai, director of instructional laboratories in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory, has been selected to receive the 2016 Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award.
The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI), launched in 1908, is one of the oldest, most respected organizations of its kind in the nation, and gaining membership is an aspiration that pretty much all physician-scientists share, since their days as trainees.
How big you are may be as important as what you look like, at least to immune system cells watching for dangerous bacteria and viruses.
This is what collaboration looks like.
Is a treatment only making things better or maybe also making some things a little worse?
Georgia Institute of Technology and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have enjoyed a robust and productive partnership over the years.
Robert Matheny, a cardiothoracic surgeon, is giving last-minute instructions to another surgeon who is about to operate on a baby 2,000 miles away in a neon city.
When your doctor diagnoses a condition and recommends a course of treatment, she relies on her extensive training, guidelines from professional medical organizations, and previous experience with thousands of other patients.
