Biomedical engineering students Jervaughn Hunter and Nikea McMullen are developing a contamination-free stethoscope cover to prevent a common source of infection.
The public is invited to come to campus on Wednesday, April 19 and Friday, April 21 to meet the students and to see how they are engineering solutions to real-world challenges.
The department now has 20 full-time faculty members who brought in $4.3 million in funding in 2016.
Cardiac muscle patches in this proof-of-concept research may represent an important step toward the clinical use of 3-D-printing technology, as researchers have grown heart tissue by seeding a mix of human cells onto a 1-micron-resolution scaffold made with a 3-D printer.
The collaboration among UAB, University of Wisconsin and Duke University will use bioengineered stem cells and bioengineered tissue to treat heart failure after heart attacks.
A robotic 3-D printer will build the tissue through computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing, but using living cells as the pieces of the structure.
The March 28 event aims to identify novel potential therapies and discuss new approaches to repair damaged hearts and vasculature.
Gaurav Agrawal, junior in biomedical engineering, Christlin Ponraj, graduate student in biotechnology, and Angelin Ponraj, sophomore in biomedical sciences, are seeking a simple, private way to alert Alabama residents about their risk for diabetes.
Gerardo Hernandez-Moreno, a junior in biomedical engineering, and JaVarus Humphries, junior in neuroscience, plan to develop a network of unbiased medical professionals to offer a safe place for inner-city youth to learn about sexual health and disease.
UAB cardiovascular disease researchers are improving our understanding of the disease and finding new ways to provide medical care to patients.
