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.
When mixed with fluid from a nasal swab or blood sample, these protein sensors emit light within minutes. BioE graduate student Alfredo Quijano-Rubio co-led the work at the Institute for Protein Design.
A new approach uses lasers and molecular tethers to pattern 3D cell fate in natural scaffolds for tissue engineering.
