“Neural Engineering Tech Studio” students invent technologies with potential to make real-world impact
In the BioE course "Neural Engineering Tech Studio", undergraduate and graduate students team up to brainstorm solutions that address problems experienced by people living with sensory impairment, cognitive challenges and other sensorimotor conditions.
UW BioE is among the nation's top 10 bioengineering/biomedical engineering graduate programs, according to the 2019 [...]

UW Bioengineering Ph.D. student Charles Roco is co-lead author on a paper published Mar. 15 in Science that reports on SPLiT-seq — or Split Pool Ligation-based Transcriptome sequencing — a new method to classify and track different types of cells in tissue sample.
Researchers from Georg Seelig’s (Electrical Engineering, adjunct BioE) and Suzie Pun/Drew Sellers’ labs, and the Allen Institute for Brain Science, have developed a new single-cell RNA sequencing method that can reliably track gene activity in a tissue sample to the individual cell level.
The Bryers labs presents the effects of varying pore size of poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) and poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS, silicone) scaffolds on the maturation and in vivo enrichment of dendritic cells.
Researchers from Shaoyi Jiang's (BioE adjunct) lab demonstrate a zwitterionic polycarboxybetaine nanocage that can physically encase proteins while keeping their structure intact. This approach addresses the problem posed by efficacy loss of biotherapeutics due to undesirable immune response.
