  • UW Bioengineers, led by Dr. Deok-Ho Kim, designed a polymer-based hydrogel with nanoscale grooves and ridges, shown in this scanning electron microscope image, for growing heart cells. The nano-grooved surface causes immature human heart cells to organize and mature into a layer of human heart tissue useful for testing toxic effects of drugs.

Coulter Program helps launch BioE technologies toward clinical impact (Part 2 of 2)

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.
