BioE/ChemE's team will launch an interdepartmental health engineering course for first year direct to college (DTC) students that explores multidisciplinary engineering approaches to improving and promoting human health.
UW Bioengineering Associate Professors Wendy Thomas and Daniel Ratner have received 2016 UW College of Engineering Awards. Dr. Thomas received the Faculty Award for Teaching and Dr. Ratner received the Dean's Award.
The Seattle Times reported on UW's efforts to expand its Washington Nanofabrication Facility, a national user facility [...]
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.
UW Bioengineering assistant professor Dr. Daniel Ratner has developed a paper-based diagnostic system which uses [...]
