UW Bioengineers have created a smartphone-based imaging system that can detect certain bacteria on skin and teeth that glow red when placed under black light. The proof-of-concept demonstration can distinguish bacteria from background tissue, and could allow health providers, dentists or the public to conveniently monitor skin and oral health. The system can also be adapted for monitoring bacterial activity in new or chronic wounds.
UW Bioengineering's Kelly Stevens and Univ. of Michigan's Omolola Eniola-Adefesa lead a national network of biomedical engineers calling to end funding discrimination against Black scientists.
Commentary with lead author Kelly Stevens: Our nationwide network of BME women faculty collectively argue that racial funding disparity by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) remains the most insidious barrier to success of Black faculty in our profession. We thus refocus attention on this critical barrier and suggest solutions on how it can be dismantled.
A new approach uses lasers and molecular tethers to pattern 3D cell fate in natural scaffolds for tissue engineering.
