A few weeks at the Georgia Institute of Technology may have clarified Elizabeth Martin’s long-range plans, but she’ll have to fulfill her military commitment first.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has awarded Emory and Georgia Tech investigators a $2.4 million, five-year grant to study non-invasive imaging to detect immune rejection of transplanted organs.
On May 22, Susan Margulies was named the Wallace H. Coulter Chair of the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Georgia Tech and Emory University, and a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in Injury Biomechanics. She is the fourth chair in the department’s history.
Using tiny snippets of DNA as “barcodes,” researchers have developed a new technique for rapidly screening nanoparticles for their ability to selectively deliver therapeutic genes to specific organs of the body.
Kihan Park, a graduate student in the RoboMed Lab directed by Jaydev Desai, won the Best Student Paper award at the International Conference of Manipulation, Automation, and Robotics at Small Scales (MARSS 2017), July 17-21, in Montreal, Canada.
Josh Liebowitz has an ambitious destination for his career path, which happens to run right through the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Low-density lipoproteins, or LDLs, usually get a bad rap. It’s because LDL particles (also known as “bad cholesterol”) are directly involved in the development of atherosclerosis, thickening of the artery wall which often leads to fatal cardiovascular disorders, like stroke or heart attack.
At the Georgia Institute of Technology, a rare synergy of engineers and scientists, in cooperation with Emory University School of Medicine and other collaborators, is expanding data collection and analysis on the brain.
In the 116 years since Dr. Aloysius Alzheimer discovered the disease that bears his name, not much has changed. The research path has been vexing, while the need for progress has become urgent — especially as people live longer.
Researchers at Georgia Tech and Emory University have created a device that makes walking up and down stairs easier.
Three teams of researchers working on a diverse range of projects have been awarded 2017 Petit Institute Seed Grants.
