Five ways bioengineers want to use 3-D printing
August 13, 2016
In Trends in Biotechnology a special issue on biofabrication, publishing August 17, researchers review and consider the progress made in 3D bioprinting and what might be possible in the decades--or years--ahead. We would like to congratulate Prof. Jeroen Rouwkema and BIRC Director Ali Khademhosseini for being considered pioneers in the 3D vasculature design and for contributing in this special issue in Trends in Biotechnology.
'Smart' thread woven into tissue gathers diagnostic data
July 19, 2016
We would like to congratulate Pooria Mostafalu, Ph.D on his recent work published in Microsystems & Nanoengineering The researchers used a variety of conductive threads that were dipped in physical and chemical sensing compounds and connected to wireless electronic circuitry to create a flexible platform that they sutured into tissue in rats as well as in vitro. The threads collected data on tissue health (e.g. pressure, stress, strain and temperature), pH and glucose levels that can be used to determine such things as how a wound is healing, whether infection is emerging, or whether the body's chemistry is out of balance.
