February 2010 Bioengineer Associate Professor Dan Fletcher works to understand, on a cellular level, the physiology of movement within the human body. Check out his research, and it’s relation to the Olympics and our own movement, in this National Science Foundation video.
January 29, 2010 Researchers in Bioengineering Professor Luke Lee’s lab have created smart nanoprobes that may one day be used in the battle against cancer to selectively seek out and destroy tumor cells, as well as report back on the mission’s status.
January 27, 2010 Bioengineering researchers have received a $1 million grant from the Keck Foundation to pursue research on limb and organ regeneration.
January 27, 2010 A collaboration led by UC Berkeley Professor of Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering Jay Keasling, and by bioengineering graduate student Eric Steen, has developed a microbe that can produce an advanced biofuel directly from biomass.
January 20, 2010 With a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), bioengineers from the University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University are ramping up efforts to characterize the thousands of control elements critical to the engineering of microbes so that eventually, researchers can mix and match these “DNA parts” in synthetic organisms to produce […]
November 2010 Bioengineering undergraduate alumnus James Moon has been awarded the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine Young Investigator Award.
