Bioengineered Organs Initiative
A team of BME researchers is developing a self-contained, non-blood-contracting ventricular assist device that uses muscle power to support the failing heart.
A new organ-on-an-electronic-chip platform, published in Science Advances, uses self-rolling biosensor arrays to coil up and measure the electrophysiology of heart cells in 3D.
CMU researchers have published in Science a new 3D bioprinting method that brings the field of tissue engineering one step closer to being able to 3D print a full-sized, adult human heart.
Carnegie Mellon University researchers created a machine learning algorithm that optimizes parameters of soft materials 3D printing.
There are many ways to make a lung. With so many possible approaches, where do you even start? BME Ph.D. student Erica Comber has the answer.
Adam Feinberg, an associate professor of biomedical engineering and materials science & engineering, has developed the novel Freeform Reversible Embedding of Suspended Hydrogels (FRESH) 3-D bioprinting technique, which allows for the printing of soft gels.
The Bioengineered Organs Initiative recently received a planning grant from the NSF, which will allow them to assemble a full proposal to establish an Engineering Research Center for Advanced Organ Biofabrication.
