Mayo Clinic researchers contribute unique CT data to public repository
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Medical physicists at the Mayo Clinic have just made a unique library of computed tomography (CT) data publicly available so that imaging researchers can study, develop, validate, and optimize algorithms and enhance imaging hardware to produce peak-quality CT images using low radiation doses.

Robot designed to simplify blood draws
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Bioengineers have created a blood-drawing robot that performed as well or better than technicians. The device could increase blood draw success from difficult- to-find veins and allow healthcare workers more time to treat patients.

Patient-friendly brain imager gets green light toward first prototype
Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories has received a $6 million grant from the the National Institutes of Health to build a prototype medical device that would make magnetoencephalography (MEG) — a type of noninvasive brain scan — more comfortable, more accessible and potentially more accurate.

Little Tissue, Big Mission: Beating Heart Tissues to Ride Aboard The ISS
Johns Hopkins University

Launching no earlier than March 6 at 11:50 PM EST, the Johns Hopkins University will send heart muscle tissues, contained in a specially-designed tissue chip the size of a small cellphone, up to the microgravity environment of the International Space Station (ISS) for one month of observation.

NIH announces $1 million prize competition to target global disease diagnostics
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

The National Institutes of Health has launched a $1 million Technology Accelerator Challenge (TAC) to spur the design and development of non-invasive, handheld, digital technologies to detect, diagnose and guide therapies for diseases with high global and public health impact. The Challenge is focused on sickle cell disease, malaria and anemia and is led by NIH’s National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB).

Nanosize Device ‘Uncloaks’ Cancer Cells in Mice And Reveals Them to The Immune System
Johns Hopkins Medicine

Scientists at Johns Hopkins report they have designed and successfully tested an experimental, super small package able to deliver molecular signals that tag implanted human cancer cells in mice and make them visible for destruction by the animals’ immune systems. The new method was developed, say the researchers, to deliver an immune system “uncloaking” device directly to cancer cells.

Computer model mines medicines
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Most medicines work by binding to and blocking the effect of disease-causing molecules. Now to accelerate the identification of potential new medicines, bioengineers have created a computer model that mimics the way molecules bind.

$1.2 million in grants to fund search for diabetes cure
Binghamton University, State University of New York

A biomedical engineering professor at Binghamton University, State University of New York is trying to find a cure for diabetes from several different angles, and three federal grants totaling nearly $1.2 million will aid her and her research team in that quest.
