Making a Difference
Lab-grown lung tissue could lead to new cancer, asthma treatments A look at how Michigan Engineers created a biomaterial scaffold to help researchers from the U-M Medical School grow mature human lung tissue.
In a breakthrough that could one day lead to new treatments for lung diseases like asthma and lung cancer, researchers have successfully coaxed stem cells—the body’s master cells—to grow into three-dimensional lung tissue.
The student-run organization M-HEAL, Michigan Health Engineered for All Lives, has a laudable, and ambitious, mission: to design healthcare solutions in collaboration with international partners to positively impact global health.
Aftin & Astin Ross: Changing the world together Aftin and Astin Ross, PhDs in biomedical engineering, are making a name for themselves at the FDA.
What’s better than one Michigan Engineer making critical innovations at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)? How about two?
