UC Davis Biomedical Engineering Emeritus Faculty Member Dr. Katherine Ferrara has been honored by the World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS)’s Women in Molecular Imaging Network (WIMIN) with the group’s inaugural leadership award.
Karen Moxon, a powerhouse researcher in the field of neuroengineering and professor of bioengineering, focuses on understanding how information in the brain is represented and how it is affected by spinal injury, stroke, or other brain damage.
Prosthetics, medical models and so much more: There’s always something happening in the UC Davis Biomedical Engineering TEAM Lab. It’s a unique place that empowers researchers to take a health- or life-improving idea and make it a reality with the help of experienced staff and amazing design and manufacturing technology.
The Center for Molecular and Genomic Imaging (CMGI) helps researchers picture their medical experiments – literally. The center hosts the latest equipment specially engineered to provide dedicated, state-of-the-art, noninvasive animal and biospecimen medical imaging.
Faculty, researchers and students at the UC Davis Biomedical Engineering Department’s Tan Lab report they’ve successfully created bacteria-killing artificial cells that operate even in the poorest environments.
An interdisciplinary study by an undergraduate researcher in the Heinrich Lab attests to the growing recognition that innovative concepts and approaches developed by bioengineers and biophysicists can help tackle vital scientific questions that are inaccessible to traditional biological methods.
Associate Professor Vivek Srinivasan has been named to the 2018 class of Chancellor’s Fellows. Dr. Srinivasan is developing new optical imaging technology that “sees” deeper into the living brain and makes out more detail in the living eye.
The UC Davis College of Engineering will present Katherine Ferrara a 2017 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Medal Friday evening, January 19. Dr. Ferrara is a distinguished professor of biomedical engineering at UC Davis whose research has pioneered using ultrasound to image cancer and heart disease.
