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.
New technology could speed hospital work, enhance health care
Rutgers researchers have created an automated blood drawing and testing device that provides rapid results, potentially improving the workflow in hospitals and other health-related institutions to allow health care practitioners to spend more time treating patients.
A study describing the fully automated device is published online in the journal TECHNOLOGY.
Rutgers biomedical engineering assistant professor Ronke Olabisi was awarded prestigious CAREER award by the National Science Foundation. The award is given to early career faculty who show excellence in integrating teaching and research.
A TechAdvance award of $92,000 has been granted to a team led by David Shreiber. The funding, which is through the Rutgers Office of Research and Economic Development, is to develop a biomaterial technology for targeted drug delivery.
Howon Lee (MAE) and Joseph Freeman (BME) have developed an approach to 3D-print electroactive hydrogels that can demonstrate reproducible, programmable motions and force. The work appears in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
BME Master's student Amin Khalili has been awarded a Henry J. Raimondo Legislative Award from the Eagleton Institute of Politics for 2018-2019.
