Charles Murry, UW professor of bioengineering, pathology and medicine/cardiology and pioneering cardiac disease researcher, will be honored at the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR) Speak up for Research Gala on June 9, 2016.
In this role, Assistant Professor Deok-Ho Kim will support EMBS on teleconferences or at scheduled meetings, and submit representative reports to IEEE EMBS leadership.
Deok-Ho Kim’s “Self-assembling peptides for stem cell and tissue engineering” featured on Biomaterials Science cover
Deok-Ho Kim and collaborators examine the potential of self-assembling peptides (SAPs) in conjunction with stem cells to improve the repair of damaged tissues.
A recent episode of Eric Chudler's TV program BrainWorks presents the issue of sports-related concussions, and demonstrates to kids and parents how to prevent and protect growing brains from injury
In “Art on the Nanoscale and Beyond,” Dr. Folch and collaborators discuss applications of nano and microscale materials in art, and their utility communicating science to a broader audience.
UW Bioengineering faculty Charles Murry, Michael Regnier, Ruikang Wang and adjunct faculty Tueng Shen were inducted to the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2016 at the AIMBE Annual Event, which was held April 3-4 in Washington, D.C.
UW Bioengineering Professor Emeritus Allan Hoffman will receive two prestigious awards recognizing his contributions to the field of biomaterials: the 2016 Allan Hoffman CRS Foundation Award and the 2017 Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal.
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.
