Biomedical engineers at Yale have created a new, more human-like model for studying inflammation with the goal that discoveries in a petri dish can actually translate to cures for diseases in the human body.
The Free-D wireless power system, developed by Dr. Pramod Bonde of the Yale Department of Surgery, successfully wirelessly powers an implanted heart assistance device, creating much hope and promise for heart disease patients.
In discovering an approach to creating regenerative sensors, Mark Reed, Yale Professor of Electrical Engineering, has improved the efficacy and precision of biosensors in detecting biomarkers for cancer and other diseases.
In a materials engineering lab at Harvard University, researchers have demonstrated the ability for ionic conductors to be viable candidates for potential biomedical advances.
During fieldwork, Dr. Isaac Bogoch assembled a microscope from an iPhone, an $8 ball lens, and some tape, to detect hookworms in 200 Tanzanian children. The invention gives hope for increased detection of the disease in rural Africa and around the world.
An ingenious, easy-to-use diagnostic device developed by Vanderbilt professor Dr. Rick Haselton could be a game-changer in the fight against malaria.
Professors Richard A. Flavell and Ruslan M. Medzhitov of the Yale Department of Immunobiology have been selected to receive the 2013 Vilcek Prize in Biomedical Science.
For over a century, the mouse has been used as a model for human disease, leading to countless insights into human health. Virtually all clinical treatments must first be validated in the mouse before human trials are considered. However, a
A team in the Yale Electrical Engineering Department has successfully developed a microscopic device that imitates ion channels, which are structures in biological membranes that control ion flow. This device helps us better understand biological ion channels and has the ability to both desalinate and generate electricity from seawater.
