April 22, 2008 – Congratulations to Ryan Cooper who won Best Design and to Tizita Addis Mammo who won Best Presentation at the Spring 2008 Science and Engineering Poster Session!
April 17, 2008 Dan Fletcher’s studies of dynamic actin networks of crawling cells using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and optical traps were featured in Nature Magazine’s April issue.
April 2008 Bioengineering Assistant Professor Seung-Wuk Lee has created an artificial “nose” that sniffs out the explosive TNT with genetically engineered viruses. The eNose, which will probably first be used to protect soldiers and identify terrorists, is based on a technology that has a whole host of potential uses. In the consumer landscape, the eNose […]
March 17, 2008 – Bioengineering Professor Luke Lee and his lab group have developed a technique to quickly generate three-dimensional artificial tumours that could help improve anti-cancer drug testing. The “tumour factory” offers a better alternative to the flat cultured cells currently used to test new anticancer drugs.
March 2008 Researchers in Bioengineering Associate Professor Dan Fletcher’s laboratory have pioneered a new method for encapsulating proteins in cell-like lipid vesicles, according to a study published in the March 25, 2008 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Compartmentalization of biomolecules within lipid membranes is a fundamental requirement of living systems […]
March 2008 Berkeley Bioengineering Assistant Professor Seung-Wuk Lee has received a 2008 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program award. CAREER awards are given to young researchers in science and engineering who have also translated their work into significant education activities.
January 16, 2008 Assistant Professor of Bioengineering Irina Conboy has been awarded a $2.25 million research grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).
