BME Researchers Developing Solutions to "Oh, My Aching Back!"
July 26, 2005
A team of biomedical engineering faculty are developing specialized hydraulic machines and software that can be used to design better and longer lasting implants for people suffering from spinal injuries, disease, and age-related wear.
 
Fifth Summer Seminar Held
July 19, 2005
The creation of gaps in nanoscale wires is of interest for both fundamental and applied research. Fundamental research benefits from a better understanding of how to form such gaps as well as the study of them. Filling the gaps with other materials helps advances research on the next generation of electronic devices. In addition, the wires created can be selectively placed across the gaps of microfabricated electrodes, allowing the electrical properties of the nanowire(s) to be determined.

REU Students Exhibit Research Progress
July 12, 2005
Students participating in the NSF-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates program presented their early research results at a poster session in the Fu Room of the Potter Building on July 5th.
 
Fourth Summer Seminar Held
July 12, 2005
Graduate student Marc Normandin has presented the fourth summer seminar on Kinetic Modeling of Positron Emission Tomography Data: Probing the Dopamine System. Neurotransmitters are chemical compounds that transmit nerve impulses across synapses (the junction between two nerve cells or neurons). Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that has been implicated in the processing of rewarding stimuli, and the reinforcing effects of drugs and alcohol are believed to be associated with the speed of dopamine release. While reinforcing rewarding stimuli can be a good thing, in the case of alcohol or drugs it could have serious repercussions including triggering substance abuse and dependence.
Ai-Lin Chun Wins Best Poster Award
June 29, 2005
Ai-Lin Chun was just notified that she won the best poster award in the Materials Chemistry Division at the CSC 2005 meeting in Saskatoon.
 
Third Summer Seminar Held
June 29, 2005
Graduate student Aaron Kyle has presented the third summer seminar series on Feasibility and Design of an Acoustic Guidance System for Fluid-Filled IV Catheters. Acoustic-guidance has proven to be valuable in the placement and monitoring of air-filled breathing tubes. Yet, some of the greatest potential for use of such systems lies in the areas of vascular and urological medicine, where tubes and catheters in clinical use are liquid-filled. The research being done by Kyle, under faculty advisors George R. Wodicka and J. Stuart Bolton, begins the process of adapting the systems for use in liquid environments. The research has found that acoustic transmission line analysis can be used to accurately model acoustic performance in simple liquid-filled tubes, paving the way for adaptation into complex catheter systems.
BME SURF Students' Research Showcased
June 27, 2005
The research being done by two BME SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships) students has been garnering a lot of attention recently.
