Richard J. Price, who holds joint faculty appointments in UVA’s schools of Medicine and Engineering, is using focused soundwaves to overcome the natural “blood-brain barrier,” which protects the brain from harmful pathogens. His approach aims to breach the barrier only where needed, and only when...
Amy Mathers, who is working on a ground-breaking research project as part of her seed grant from the Center for Engineering in Medicine, was also instrumental in developing the new COVID-19 tests that are now being administered.
After developing a pain management intervention with engineers via a seed grant from the Center for Engineering in Medicine, UVA nursing professor Virginia LeBaron brings the app to an emerging wireless health community.
Matthew J. Lazzara, chemical engineering, and Dr. Todd W. Bauer, surgery, receive $2.34 million from the National Cancer Institute to study the influences of cell signaling and decision-making in pancreatic cancer, with a focus on finding cells that may become invasive and metastasize.
Associate Professor Matt Panzer is one of the world’s leaders on state-of-the-art modeling and simulation of the brain's response to mechanical loads according to a special issue of Annals of Biomedical Engineering published by Springer
It's hard to find a disease that Peirce-Cottler's research hasn't impacted. She is a professor of biomedical engineering, on the steering committee for the Center for Advanced Biomanufacturing, and a researcher at the Center for Engineering in Medicine.
The fall 2019 submission period for seed grant proposals is now open. The Center for Engineering in Medicine provides over $1 million per year in seed funding to support the formation of new collaborations and launch promising new projects at the engineering-medicine interface.
Health IT Analytics features a publication by researchers supported by the Center for Engineering in Medicine: Machine learning algorithms can rapidly analyze biopsy images and reduce the time it takes to diagnose gut diseases in children, revealed a study published in JAMA Network Open.
In Jeff Holmes' op ed for The Conversation, he argues that "Teaching engineers and healthcare professionals to collaborate is faster, cheaper, and more feasible than building specialty programs to train physician-engineers or launching more biomedical engineering programs."
Via a seed grant from the Center for Engineering in Medicine, mechanical engineering and orthopedic researchers team up to work toward an innovative solution for treating lower back pain after surgery and for chronic back pain. They are developing drug delivery patches that would be worn on the...
University of Virginia engineering professors Daniel Quinn and John Lach, working with UVA asthma physician Dr. Larry Borish, are developing and testing innovative sensor systems that, once fully designed and implanted in a patient’s trachea, should help detect sudden asthma attacks before they...
Center for Engineering in Medicine researcher, Dr. Sana Syed, is part of the University of Virginia’s Data Science Institute. She is seeking to teach machines to read biopsy images and diagnose disease.
“This concentrated collaborative effort made huge gains in quantifying processes in brain immunolgy that may someday impact research in Alzheimer’s, autism and other neuro-immune diseases,” says electrical engineer and professor Scott Acton.
The call for Engineering-in-Medicine seed grant proposals is now open. The objective of the seed grant program is to foster sustained, high-impact collaborations at the interface of engineering and medicine.
The UVA research team, made up of LeBaron; John Lach, an electrical and computer engineering professor; and Dr. Leslie Blackhall, a palliative care physician, is developing and deploying an innovative, in-home system of wireless sensing technology that records factors that may contribute to increased pain.
