From the American Physiological Society:
The story of the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience always has been more about flesh and blood than bricks and mortar. That theme rang clear when the institute hosted a 20th anniversary gala Tuesday night, Oct. 27.
The week of October 12 - 16, 2015, was designated as Emory Medicine Recognitions Week.
Two teams of Georgia Tech students brought home the top prizes at Hack ATL, the largest undergraduate business “hackathon” in the Southeast — with more than 35 teams participating.
Cutting edge research is not a solo act. Successful results are acquired through an ensemble effort, like the Georgia ImmunoEngineering Consortium, a collaborative partnership of multidisciplinary researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University.
Reporting in Nature Biotechnology, James Dahlman, assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, along with MIT graduate students Silvana Konermann and Omar Abudayyeh, and colleagues at MIT now show that guide RNAs can c
Two researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology are riding a second wave of grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative.
Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University faculty members are uniting to train the next generation of engineering students in healthcare robotics technologies, so they can better understand the changing needs of patients and their caregivers and healthcare providers.
The best way to fight cancer is to discover it at an early stage, which improves treatment outcomes. Of course, that isn’t easy because cancer detection thresholds based on measuring biomarkers shed by small tumors are limited.
Biomedical engineers have demonstrated a proof-of-principle technique that could give women and their oncologists more personalized information to help them choose options for treating breast cancer.
Alex Weiss is an ardent advocate of the farm to table movement. He wants you to eat the freshest produce possible and to know where it came from. And he’s willing to do his part to see that it happens.
You’ll find them five nights in the Learning Commons on the fourth floor of the Whitaker Building, home of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) – students helping students, sharing knowledge, a rising human tide trying to lift all boats.
What is suffering? It’s a question that inspired a team of Georgia Institute of Technology students to bring a long-held idea to life for Sharron Close Ph.D. M.S. CPNP-PC, a research assistant professor and pediatric nurse practitioner in the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.
In May, sixty biomedical engineering (BME) students from Georgia Tech flew to Galway, Ireland to earn course credit and get exposed to international biomedical device manufacturing.
Taylor See, a fourth-year student in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at the Georgia Institute of Technology, participated in an internship in the office of Georgia Congressman Tom Price in Washington, D.C., this past summer.
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.
