Earlier this year, BME PhD student Maria Qadri's research was featured in the form of a graphic article for a three-part series on How Big Data Is Transforming Health Care for Pacific Standard. Using illustration the series features a comic book version of Qadri in her research exploring how advances in tracking technology, data analysis, and automation offer significant improvements in medical treatment and quality of life.
Professor Martin Yarmush has been awarded a Visiting Professor Fellowship from the Lady Davis Fellowship Trust to engage in teaching and research activities at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. Professor Yarmush will be working with Professor Yaakov Nahmias, Director of the Alexandar Grass Center for Bioengineering (and a former postdoctoral fellow), and other faculty colleagues on a variety of projects including new organ-on-a-chip technologies.
New faculty member, Dr. Biju Parekkadan, was selected for a Rutgers TechAdvance award to in the area of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing to develop Bioactive Cell Growth Capsules.
Light-emitting nanoprobes can detect cancer early and track the spread of tiny tumors
Using light-emitting nanoparticles, Rutgers University-New Brunswickscientists have invented a highly effective method to detect tiny tumors and track their spread, potentially leading to earlier cancer detection and more precise treatment.
The technology, announced today, could improve patient cure rates and survival times.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering has opened new labs and launched a certificate program for the design of medical devices as it positions itself as a statewide leader for research, development, education, and training in the field.
Sixty Biomedical Engineering alumni, faculty, and friends attended the second annual BME Alumni Networking Event on October 25, 2017, at the new home of The Rutgers Club on Livingston Campus in Piscataway. Special thanks to Mark Zimmerman and Eric Novik, for allowing us to recognize them for their commitment to the department, and to Professor Noshir Langrana, for 12 years of dedicated service as Chair of the department.
