Scientists are planting human stem cells on membranes of parsley and vanilla beans to optimize cell growth and discover new possibilities for biomedical implants.
By using principles of systems engineering, researchers are examining the interplay of patients, clinicians, and technology to improve processes and reduce patient safety risks.
Researchers are investigating ways to accelerate learning by stimulating nerves in the head and neck, building on prior research that showed stimulation of nerves in animals dramatically increased the speed at which an animal learned a task.
The Forward BIO Institute catalyzes innovation in biomanufacturing research, and acts as a catapult to push groundbreaking technologies into the private sector. To accomplish this vision, the Institute engages with research institutions throughout the Midwest and supports innovations in transformative research and development, public-private partnerships, and workforce development in the emerging area of biomanufacturing.
WIHSE aims to revolutionize the patient experience, improve population health, control healthcare costs, and enhance clinician satisfaction by bringing together practitioners and researchers to design better systems in health care.
Spartan engineers have secured $3.4 million in grants to develop diamond implants that could let doctors diagnose and treat Parkinson’s disease earlier. Michigan State University’s Wen Li and Erin Purcell are leading the effort to …September 11, 2020
