Brown hosts regional bioengineering conference
Date:3/31/2008

same effect the body provides naturally.

Braithwaite will present results from short-term animal studies and lab experiments.

  • A presentation by Paul Calvert, a professor in the Materials and Textile Department at the University of MassachusettsDartmouth, on printing human organs.

    Science fiction? It may not be too far off. Thats because Calvert has succeeded in the ink jet printing of stem cells and proteins, the fundamental building blocks of organisms and the primary constituents of hair, tendons, muscle, skin, and cartilage.

    The stem cells that Calvert has printed have been undamaged and have high survival rates, he will report. The next step is to build tissue samples for implant or testing, and the ultimate goal will be to use the technology to print human organs.

  • A presentation by Srinivas Sridhar, vice provost for research and chair of the Physics Department at Northeastern University, on the emerging field of nanomedicine.

    Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology the engineering of tiny machines to prevent and treat disease in the human body.

    In his presentation, Sridhar will give an overview of sorts, explaining how nanomedicine seeks to exploit a timely convergence of two parallel recent developments toward the diagnosis and therapy of disease the decoding of the human genome that has led to greater understanding of the molecular basis of diseases, and nanotechology, which offers the means to control single molecular interactions.

    Sridhar also serves as director of Nanomedicine Science and Technology, a program funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Science Foundation.
