Purdue scientists find hypertension drug may aid treatment of spinal injuries
April 18, 2006
Purdue University researchers have identified a drug commonly used to treat hypertension that may also reverse damage from spinal cord injuries, cancer and Parkinson's disease. A research team led by Riyi Shi and Richard Borgens, who hold joint appointments in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering and the School of Veterinary Medicine, found that hydralazine, a medication that relaxes veins and arteries, may be an antidote for acrolein, a deadly toxin that is produced after a nerve cell is injured.
Engineers creating small wireless device to improve cancer treatment
April 18, 2006
Engineers at Purdue University, led by Babak Ziaie who holds a courtesy appointment in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, are creating a wireless device the size of a rice grain that could be implanted in tumors to tell doctors the precise dose of radiation received and locate the exact position of tumors during treatment.
Sherry Voytik-Harbin Promoted
April 10, 2006
The Purdue Board of Trustees has approved the promotion of Sherry Voytik-Harbin to Associate Professor with tenure effective August 14, 2006. Dr. Voytik-Harbin came to Purdue in 1987 to pursue graduate studies, and has built on that foundation to advance tissue engineering research and development pertaining to the extra-cellular matrix.

George Wodicka, head of the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering states, "This well-deserved promotion reflects Sherry's seminal research and educational impact on our School and beyond, and recognizes her tireless efforts on so many important fronts."

Faculty Profile: Sherry Voytik-Harbin
January 17, 2006
Family is important to Sherry Voytik-Harbin (on right in photo), and two different but complementary families share this dynamic researcher. The first is her nuclear family, which is the most important part of her life. The second is the larger family of faculty, staff, and students at the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering who are helping her advance understanding of the complex multi-dimensional interactions of cells with the surrounding extracellular matrix (ECM). From that understanding comes the possibility of engineering ECM-based biomaterials that better interface with cells for improved repair and regeneration of damaged tissues.
