Developing new ways to grow blood vessels

Developing new ways to grow blood vessels
Formation of blood vessels, a process also known as angiogenesis, is one of the major clinical challenges in wound healing and tissue implants. To address this issue, researchers from Texas A&M University have developed a clay-based platform to deliver therapeutic proteins to the body to assist with the formation of blood vessels. The team is led by members of the Inspired Nanomaterials and Tissue Engineering Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

White cane attachment could help the visually impaired

White cane attachment could help the visually impaired
According to the World Health Organisation, approximately 253 million people across the globe live with visual impairment, and 36 million are blind. Since the 1920s, white canes have been used to navigate surroundings and visually notify others of visual impairments. Four engineering students at Texas A&M University have developed a white cane attachment that can provide object detection and turn-by-turn navigation assistance via haptic feedback.

Developing next-gen materials for chronic wound repair

Developing next-gen materials for chronic wound repair
Researchers at Texas A&M University and the Stevens Institute of Technology are laying the groundwork to develop the next generation of biomedical materials used to treat chronic wounds. Research partners Dr. Svetlana Sukhishvili and Dr. Hongjun Wang conceived the project during a meeting regarding their groups’ primary focus of research. Experiments were conducted at both facilities, and the results of each were combined to form one cohesive study.

Propagating light deeper into the human brain

Propagating light deeper into the human brain
  Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev, professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been developing a more efficient way of propagating light through an opaque medium. Propagation of light refers to the way that light travels from one point to another, in this case, through a medium, such as human tissue.

Nanosystems could be an alternative to delivering drugs

Nanosystems could be an alternative to delivering drugs
A number of drugs—from insulin to cancer chemotherapy—can be delivered only via injections, which are far more difficult for patients than taking a simple tablet or pill. It can also be more expensive, as this type of drug has to be prepared very carefully and sometimes can only be administered in a clinical setting. Ravikumar Majeti, PhD, a professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the Texas A&M Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy, and his team are working on a means around this problem.
