Engineering new possibilities

June 13, 2018
| By: Jennifer GauntDr. Megan Palsa
Researchers in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) and the Texas A&M College of Engineering have teamed up to begin filling that gap in the biomedical engineering field--that of veterinary medicine-­by exploring the possibilities of what can be accomplished when innovative minds come together.

Collaborating to solve problems of ‘scaling up’ stem cell technology

May 25, 2018
| By: Christina B. Sumners
When biomedical researchers have a technology they believe can help patients, they want to get it into the clinic as soon as possible. However, some therapies that look promising in the lab are challenging to “scale up” and produce in sufficient quantities to test in a larger group, or eventually make broadly available to patients.

Two students have recently received awards for their research and co-curricular activities. Scott Wilson, a former student in the Department of Biomedical engineering at Texas A&M University, received the Graduate Student Award for Excellence in Research-Master’s, and Dr. Charles W. Peak, a doctoral student in biomedical engineering, received the Buck Weirus Spirit Award, both from the Association of Former Students (AFS). Both work in a laboratory in the department under assistant professor, Dr. Akhilesh Garharwar.

Event attendees came together April 25-26 to share best practices and attend sessions led by some of the nation’s most renowned experts in the fields of medicine and engineering.

Flaxseed-like particles can now grow bone, cartilage tissues for humans

April 13, 2018
| By: Lorian Hopcus
Human stem cells have shown potential in medicine as they can transform into various specialized cell types such as bone and cartilage cells. The current approach to obtain such specialized cells is to subject stem cells to specialized instructive protein molecules known as growth factors. However, use of growth factors in the human body can generate harmful effects including unwanted tissue growth, such as a tumor. Researchers at Texas A&M University have explored a new class of clay nanoparticles that can direct stem cells to become bone or cartilage cells.
