A team of five biomedical engineering undergraduates who created and prototyped an economically feasible method for diagnosing tuberculosis in small children has won first prize in the 2016 Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) Challenge competition.
A new ultra-high resolution "nanoscope" is capable of taking 3-D images of an entire cell and its cellular constituents in unprecedented detail, an advance that could reveal biological phenomena never before seen and bring new medical insights.
A team of researchers led by Satish Ukkusuri, Professor of Civil
Engineering, has been selected to receive a $2.48 million National Science Foundation grant to address our nation's critical need for more resilient infrastructure and enhanced services.
Researchers who analyzed a history of tsunamis along the Pacific coast of Japan’s Tohoku region have learned that seawalls higher than 5 meters reduce damage and death, while coastal forests also play an important role in protecting the public.
A new tumor model has been shown to predict how certain types of cancer cells react differently to a commonly used chemotherapy drug, a potential tool for "precision medicine," in which drug treatment is tailored to individual patients and certain cancer types.
