Barry Lutz appointed tenure-track assistant professor

Barry Lutz was appointed tenure-track assistant professor of bioengineering on September 16, 2014. Dr. Lutz will establish an independent laboratory to develop devices for detecting and treating disease as well as develop and teach new courses. He will continue his commercialization-driven projects to develop an implantable microfluidic device for treating hydrocephalus and similar neurological conditions.

Ph.D. student’s quantitative analysis of swab performance published in PLOS One, may inform future diagnostic test development

Not all swabs used in diagnostic testing are created alike: UW BioE Ph.D student Nuttada Panpradist is lead author of study published recently in PLOS One that offers a quantitative, objective analysis of a common, critical component of diagnostic tests for disease. The study’s results may inform future diagnostic test development, helping test developers select appropriate swab types and transfer methods for diagnosis of a wide variety of disease.

Ph.D. student’s idea for device that diagnoses tuberculosis from urine leads to Global WACh/W.H. Coulter Foundation Seed Grant

An interdisciplinary research team led by PIs Drs. James Lai and Barry Lutz of UW Bioengineering and UW tuberculosis researcher-clinician Dr. David Horne has received the 2014 Global WACh/W.H. Coulter Foundation Seed Grant to develop a point-of-care diagnostic device to diagnose TB from urine samples. The idea originated from a proposal developed by UW BioE student Nuttada Panpradist and UW MPH student and pediatrician Dr. Diana Marangu in a Global Health course, GH 590, “Bioengineering Solutions to Improve the Health of Women, Adolescents and Children”.

Rapid results lead the way in inventing the high-tech, low-cost future of medicine

The world does not yet have a Star Trek tricorder. But UW bioengineers are developing devices and technology that may be powerful precursors to Dr. McCoy’s handy 23rd century diagnostic device, and may make improving health faster and easier than ever before. Researchers are answering the call for accessible, rapid testing tools, which can speed the time until treatment starts, helping prevent deaths, outbreaks and disability.
