This May marks the 10th anniversary of the UW’s Coulter Translational Research Partnership in Biomedical Engineering, which has helped propel dozens of UW inventions from the lab toward clinical use. We profile one of Coulter’s recent successes: a platform for growing cardiac cells for drug toxicity testing. Researchers in BioE’s Deok-Ho Kim’s lab developed the technology, which was recently spun out to the start-up NanoSurface Biomedical.
UW Bioengineering alumnus Patrick Hsieh is confronting these challenges by developing stem cell therapy strategies for treating cardiovascular disease and preventing heart failure. Dr. Hsieh’s research focuses on developing drug delivery and biomaterials that promote the survival, retention and integration of cardiac stem cells.
Five UW Bioengineering student-led teams won over $30,000 of start-up funding at the 18th annual UW Business Plan Competition. The competition offers entrepreneurial students an opportunity to turn their ideas into compelling and viable startups. BioE teams won seven of the 14 prizes in the competition, including the second place and finalist prizes.
