Researchers at the University of Washington have pioneered a way to image activity in a baby’s brain before birth, opening a window on how fetal brains develop. Led by Colin Studholme, UW joint professor of bioengineering and pediatrics, the researchers developed a method that creates a four-dimensional reconstruction of brain activity.
To help lead the next major wave in medical diagnosis and treatment, the University of Washington is planning a molecular imaging center to bring individualized, precision medicine to patients. The UW held a symposium on Feb. 16, bringing leading researchers to campus to join in discussions shaping the new center.
At the event, Dr. Chudler gave a presentation to the students, and the students participated in hands-on exhibits led by UW faculty, staff and students, including handling real brains. The event recognizes the national Brain Awareness Week to promote the public and personal benefits of brain research.
Alyssa Taylor receives Award for Excellence in Science Education from Seattle Association for Women in Science
UW Bioengineering Senior Lecturer Alyssa Taylor has received the 2017 Award for Excellence in Science Education from the Seattle Association for Women in Science (AWIS). The award recognizes her genuine passion for teaching, and serving as a positive role model for students in science and engineering.
Global research impact: College of Engineering, KING 5 interview Ph.D. student Nuttada Panpradist about her HIV diagnostics work
The UW College of Engineering published an interview with Nuttada Panpradist, a fourth year Ph.D. student in Associate Professor Barry Lutz's lab who is developing an instrument-free device that can detect HIV infection, drug resistance and viral load. Nuttada talks about her path to research in BioE, and inspiration to pursue better health care worldwide.
In a recent paper published in Nanotechnology, UW Bioengineering Assistant Professor Deok-Ho Kim and colleagues describe a novel method for fabricating scaffold-free tissue-engineered constructs using thermoresponsive nanofabricated substrates (TNFS) and magnetic levitation.
The event marked the third year the UW Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine visited Mill Creek Middle School to lead activities designed to teach students about science and health.
