UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Wendy Thomas was selected for a 2016 UW Distinguished Teaching Award. This award recognizes Dr. Thomas's outstanding teaching and mentoring, excellence in research, selfless contributions to service at UW and beyond, and her efforts to champion inclusion.
Paul Yager and other researchers are developingfast, inexpensive, highly sensitive and simple disease testing technology that anyone can use, anywhere, without needing access to power, running water or special equipment. The devices could lead to faster treatment, limit spread of infectious disease, save hundreds of thousands of lives and reduce the cost of health care.
Boldly pursuing the forefront of molecular engineering and nanotechnology, Patrick Stayton embodies UW Bioengineering’s mission to invent the future of medicine.
UW professor of pathology, bioengineering and medicine/cardiology Charles Murry's career led him from medical school to a PhD and back again, to his current work at the forefront of cardiac stem cell science and engineering.
The Controlled Release Society (CRS) Board of Directors extends a cordial invitation to an evening of celebration in honor of Dr. Allan Hoffman, UW Bioengineering Professor Emeritus the recipient of the 2016 CRS Foundation Award.
Drew Sellers, Suzie Pun and collaborators have demonstrated that a small peptide called TAxI, or Targeted Axonal Import, shows promise as a treatment strategy for ALS and other notoriously difficult to treat motor neuron diseases.
In his Feb. 25 Science in Medicine lecture "Mapping Living Human Brain Structure and Function Before Birth," joint UW Professor of Pediatrics and Bioengineering Colin Studholme will describe his group's efforts to develop methods to safely study the human brain before birth.
UW Bioengineering Assistant Professor Deok-Ho Kim and collaborators have demonstrated the ability of electroconductive nanopatterned substrates to enhance the maturation and differentiation of skeletal muscle cells.
Gao lab's "soak, drain, repeat" approach could reduce time waiting for an assay to produce results from hours and days to mere minutes.
Suzie Pun, the UW Bioengineering Robert F. Rushmer Professor of Bioengineering, was recently named a 2015 National Academy of Inventors (NAI) Fellow. Election to NAI Fellow status is a high professional distinction given to academic inventors who demonstrate a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development and societal welfare.
