A tiny doughnut-shaped chip that attaches to the end of a catheter could improve the way doctors peek inside our circulatory systems.
Bioengineers jump a major hurdle by building 3D printed templates of filament networks to create vasculature. They say the trick is sugar.
Novel engineering adds brief laser impulses to 3D, inkjet-printed blood vessels to form capillaries, resulting in a complete and functional artificial organ made of polymers and biomolecules.
Duke University researchers create living skeletal muscle that looks and acts very much like the real thing -- even down to repairing itself. Then they attack it.
Within a decade, unmanned freighters could be operating in regions like the Baltic Sea, and some think they could be safer, cheaper, and cleaner than manned cargo vessels. But regulatory and labor concerns remain.
Instead of relying on drugs to kill tumors, Georgia Tech researchers engineer artificial pathways to lure malignant cells to their death, using a "Pied Piper" approach to treating cancer.
Bioengineers at UC Berkeley say their smartphone-enabled sensor can detect volatile chemicals by mimicking the color-changing abilities of turkeys, who can shift dramatically from reds to blues to whites.
A USC professor says a 3D printer makes it possible to build a 2,500-square-foot home in less than a day.
Called a "microvascular stamp," the bandage contains cells that encourage the growth of damaged tissue in specific patterns.
In a first-of-its kind procedure, surgeons implant the blood vessel into the arm of a 62-year-old Virginia man with renal failure.
