TechTalk enews provides a monthly round-up of member updates, technological advancements, milestones and awards, industry news, and featured content on the Council’s annual sponsors. Check out what’s happening in the Council’s November issue of TechTalk!
Scientists develop new approach to treat wounds by using three-dimensional skin substitutes formed from native skin proteins through a process called electrospinning. Shifting from using synthetic materials, electrospun
protein scaffolds guide cell adhesion and growth, and can be used to deliver cells, drugs and even genes into the body.
Health officials from the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that four antidotes— including one first developed by Arizona State University and its commercial partners—had been tested in the largest Ebola clinical trial to date that’s shown it can overcome the virus and save lives.
Rosalind Sadleir, an associate professor of biomedical engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, is working to measure electrical properties of different types of tissue to better capture what’s happening in the body and better diagnose patients.
Researchers have found that a gene known as AEBP1 may play a central role in the development, severity and potential treatment of liver disease
A new type of blood test for breast cancer could help avoid thousands of unnecessary surgeries and otherwise precisely monitor disease progression
While family history has previously been associated with the risk of Alzheimer’s, this is the first study of its kind that in these numbers indicates the risk can be detected up to four decades before the typical age of onset.
While the sequencing of hundreds of thousands of human cancer genomes has driven the transformational development of precise targeted cancer treatments for humans over the past decade, relatively few canine cancer genomes have undergone similar profiling. The canine cancer genomic discovery and drug development efforts of the TGen-Ohio State team are pieces of a larger puzzle that could similarly transform veterinary oncology, while creating bridges between canine and human cancer drug development.
Whether you use the word biotechnology, bioscience or one of a number of related words—the lines are quickly blurring—“bio” in Arizona has made a major impact as it has taken root in our state.
By replacing atoms in chemical compounds with radioactive alternatives, Scientists have discovered countless medical applications, from helping to discover the mechanisms of metabolism to radioactive dating to imaging the organs of the body to diagnosing and treating disease.
