Medical test and drug development technologies from UW Bioengineering have spun out into start-ups Nexgenia and Nanosurface Biomedical, with Coulter’s help.
Undergraduate student Krittika D’Silva, dual major in UW Bioengineering and Computer Science, builds apps for global health and to help those in developing regions.
UW Bioengineering alumnus Michael Kellen of Sage Bionetworks works to bring open-source software technology and culture to the medical research community.
Q&A with Renuka Ramanathan: BioE Ph.D. student works on Empreva, a prize-winning technology for women’s health
No product currently on the market allows women to initiate both HIV prevention and contraception. Renuka and collaborators from the Woodrow lab seek to change this with Empreva, an innovative drug delivery platform that empowers women to take control of their own health.
UW bioengineers from Suzie Pun’s lab, along with collaborators from Emergency Medicine and Chemical Engineering, have developed an injectable polymer that could keep soldiers and trauma patients from bleeding to death.
Ph.D. graduate Alice Ward Racca receives Marie Sklodowska-Curie post-doctoral fellowship to study human fetal skeletal and cardiac motor proteins
Recent Ph.D. graduate Alice Ward Racca is a recipient of a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship and will spend the next two years working with Dr. Michael Geeves of the University of Kent, UK, to better understand the myosin II isoforms that are predominantly expressed during in utero development
Cecilia Giachelli has served as acting chair since fall 2013 and was appointed chair of the Department of Bioengineering on February 1, 2015. She has shown tremendous leadership during her time as acting chair and brings deep experience in both medicine and engineering that will continue to strengthen UW BioE for years to come.
Ian Andrews, a junior undergraduate in Dr. Barry Lutz’s lab, has been selected to participate in the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) School of Life Sciences Summer Research Program.
At the age of five, second-year UW Bioengineering Ph.D. student Gary Liu was diagnosed with a chronic condition called minimal change kidney disease. His experience with the disease inspired him to study bioengineering and develop solutions to treat kidney disease. With bioengineering, Gary aims to improve his own health and help others suffering from kidney disease.
UW Bioengineering research assistant professor Anthony Convertine was named the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Polymer Chemistry Blog Author of the Month. In an interview on the RSC Polymer Chemistry blog, Dr. Convertine, whose academic background is in polymer science and engineering, talks about his latest work, inspiration to become a chemist and what he enjoys doing in his free time.
