Another Trick Up The Immune System’s Sleeve: Regrowing Blood Vessels

Roughly 8.5 million people in the United States suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD), a narrowing of the arteries in the legs or arms (frequently due to the buildup of fatty plaque) that can cut off blood flow to the limbs, causing tissue death, gangrene, and even amputation. Strategies to combat PAD by delivering compounds […]

Neuroscience And Artificial Intelligence Can Help Improve Each Other

Despite their names, artificial intelligence technologies and their component systems, such as artificial neural networks, don’t have much to do with real brain science. I’m a professor of bioengineering and neurosciences interested in understanding how the brain works as a system – and how we can use that knowledge to design and engineer new machine […]

Human Esophageal Organoid Bioengineered From Stem Cells

Pluripotent stem cells have now been used to grow human esophageal organoids, scientists working to bioengineer the entire human gastrointestinal system in a laboratory report. The study is the latest advancement from researchers at the Cincinnati Children’s Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM). The center is developing new ways to study birth defects […]
