Barclay Morrison III, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia Engineering, has led the first study to determine underlying biological mechanisms that promote functional recovery of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) after blast injury.
Christine Hendon, assistant professor of electrical engineering, has won a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award for her project, “Structure-Functional Imaging of the Atrial Myocardium.”
Richard M. Osgood, Jr., Higgins Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering and Professor Emeritus of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, marked a milestone recently as he celebrated the graduation of his 60th graduate student, Zhisheng Li.
The most recently funded projects span a broad range of topics and scientific areas, including development of a reparative patch for herniated discs, a software-based analysis process to generate a velocity map of atrial fibrillation, an improved cell production system for cancer immunotherapy, a storage and transportation device for fresh osteochondral allografts, novel methods for allograft bending and engineering allografts for knee repair, and software for analyzing core infarct volume in strokes.
For three years, the Columbia-Coulter Translational Research Partnership has provided up to $1 million per year to bring innovative biomedical technologies to market to benefit human health and society through a unique collaboration between the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation and Columbia University’s Departments of Biomedical Engineering (BME), Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Radiology, and Columbia Technology Ventures.
Researchers at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health identified distinct immune changes in patients diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, known medically as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) or systemic exertion intolerance disease.
The U.S. Department of Commerce and Columbia University today announced that they will co-host the first-ever Future of Urban Innovation Summit, which will take place at the Columbia University campus in New York City on Tuesday, June 9, 2015.
As the leader of the nation’s only lab to combine research in speech recognition, music processing, signal separation, and content-based retrieval for sound processing in machines, Prof. Dan Ellis is making a lot of noise.
Researchers have for the first time successfully converted adult human skin cells into neurons of the type that regulate appetite, providing a patient-specific model for studying the neurophysiology of weight control and testing new therapies for obesity.
