There will be a strong showing of CEMB research at the 2019 Biomedical Engineering Society conference in Philadelphia, PA, on October 16-19, 2019. Co-organized by CEMB’s Jason Burdick, there will be 70 posters and talks by researchers in CEMB labs. Included in this list are 10 summer undergraduate students, two of whom will be giving […]
Recent research by CEMB PIs and trainees has been featured in NSF’s series, “4 Awesome Discoveries You Probably Didn’t Hear About.” The blinking eye-on-a-chip is currently being used to study dry eye disease, with potential to address many other diseases that affect the eye. In addition to lead authors Dan Huh, associate professor in Bioengineering […]
The CEMB is dedicated to connecting its research to a wide audience across the biomedical community, especially to those in the biomedical industries. This is part of the ‘knowledge transfer mandate’ from NSF’s Science and Technology Center program. Through a newly announced partnership, The Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME) will connect CEMB with scientists, […]
Andrei Georgescu, a 2nd year Ph.D. student in Dan Huh’s research group, presented the lab’s work at the Pennovation Center as part of the Penn’s celebration of “Be A Scientist Day” on Sunday, April 22. Dozens of activities, demonstrations, and talks made for a fabulous day to delve into the world of science and technology. […]
Two new publications from the lab of Ram Dixit at Washington University in St. Louis indicate how kinesin motor proteins and the microtubule tracks on which they move are regulated in plant cells. Kinesins are proteins that work as “engines” that carry material from one part of the cell to the next. As a transporter […]
Biomemetic devices represent a promising technological advance in the way we research and test complex biological systems. Engineered technologies that imitate cells, organs and processes can provide a controlled, scientific platform as an alternative to living tissue. Mimicry by lab-developed models can give us key insights into how natural systems will respond to stimuli while […]
CEMB is proud to congratulate Elizabeth S. Haswell, associate professor of biology in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis and CEMB Fellow, for her election as council delegate for biological sciences for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Haswell’s term began Feb. 20. Read more.
The Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB) is seeking proposals for pilot research in topics related to mechanobiology. The CEMB is a multi-institutional Science and Technology Center funded by the National Science Foundation to advance the study of mechanical forces in molecules, cells, and tissues in plants and animals. We welcome applications for seed grants from […]
St. Louis Public Radio interviews CEMB Faculty member Liz Haswell and colleague Ivan Baxter about their podcast Taproot and the challenges and rewards of life as a plant scientist. Read more.
