      Frank Barry is the Director of Arthritis Research at Osiris Therapeutics, Inc., a leading stem cell therapeutic company focused on developing and marketing products to treat medical conditions in the inflammatory, orthopedic, ...
    • Ancestry, Admixture and Selection in Colombian Genomes 

      Jordan, King (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-04-08)
    • Ant Rafts and Other Water Repellent Systems 

      Hu, David (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-04-10)
      We present a series of experiments demonstrating the water-repellent adaptations of a range of animals, from insects to mammals. These adaptations are necessary for survival in rain and other wet environments. During ...
    • The Artificial Pancreas 

      Klonoff, David (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-04-07)
      An artificial pancreas is an engineered device for treating diabetes, which is one of the greatest epidemic diseases in the US and worldwide. In the US 105 million people have diabetes or prediabetes. An artificial pancreas ...
    • Autonomous Mobile Robots for Personalized Caregiving 

      Kemp, Charles C. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-08-12)
      Mobile robots with autonomous capabilities have the potential to provide 24/7 personalized care, dramatically improving the quality of life of people with motor impairments. I will first provide an overview of opportunities ...
    • Bio-inspired Engineering of Biomaterials: Challenges and Opportunities 

      Wang, Chun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-03-27)
    • Bioengineering in the 21st Century 

      Nerem, Robert M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-09-23)
    • A Biological Engineered Approach to Enabling Adult Stem Cell-Based Biomedicine 

      Sherley, James (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-09-21)
      Adult stem cells (ASCs) have potential application in several areas of biomedicine, including cell therapy, gene therapy, and tissue engineering. However, development of ASCs for this purpose has been precluded by difficulty ...
    • The Biology and Therapeutic Promise of Small RNAs 

      Sharp, Phillip A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-10-02)
      The discovery of the multiple roles of small RNAs in regulation of gene expression is a revolutionary advance in biology. MicroRNAs probably interact with mRNAs from half of all human genes. Overexpression of some microRNAs ...
    • Biomaterials to Program Cells in situ 

      Mooney, David J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-09-13)
      There are hundreds of clinical trials of cell therapy currently underway, but simple cell infusions lead to large-scale cell death, little control over cell fate, and a typically poor clinical outcome. We propose ...
    • Biomechanics and Remodeling in Native and Engineered Arteries 

      Gleason, Rudolph (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-04-20)
      Despite advances over the past 25 years, a pressing clinical need remains to develop small diameter tissue engineered blood vessels (TEBV) with low thrombogenicity and immune responses, suitable mechanical properties, and ...
