12/31/2018 - A new neurostimulator developed by engineers at UC Berkeley can listen to and stimulate electric current in the brain at the same time, potentially delivering fine-tuned treatments to patients with diseases like epilepsy and Parkinson’s.
12/12/2018 The Better India - Everyday, tens of millions of people drink water that significantly increases their risk of cancer and other deadly diseases. UC Berkeley professor Ashok Gadgil amd Asian Institute of Technology's Joyashree Roy hope to fix that with an efficient and cost-effective system called Electrochemical Arsenic Remediation (ECAR) for removing arsenic contamination from drinking water.
12/7/2018 Berkeley Science Review - A new collaboration between Cal Athletics and the College of Engineering, puts athletes and engineers to work developing base technologies or applications that improve athletic performance.
11/15/2018 - A single season of high school football may be enough to cause microscopic changes in the structure of the brain, according to a new study led by Berkeley EECS professor Chunlei Liu.
11/14/2018 Scientists found the specific biochemical pathway that activates brown fat and causes the body to burn more calories.
11/14/2018 Using microfluidic technology, researchers can distinguish cells that are central to breast cancer development.
11/7/2018 - A new flexible sensor developed by engineers at UC Berkeley can map blood-oxygen levels over large areas of skin, tissue and organs, potentially giving doctors a new way to monitor healing wounds in real time.
10/15/2018 - A new test dubbed DETECT, co-developed by Berkeley bioengineers, can diagnose patients with antibiotic-resistant infections in a matter of minutes and help limit the spread of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” which kill as many as 700,000 people worldwide each year.
9/28/2018 Gladstone Institutes - Kevin Healy's bioengineering lab combined their tissue engineering with the Gladstone Institute's genome editing techniques to create a “diseased heart micro-tissue” model. The new tool will help explore how common environmental stress affects normal and abnormal heart tissue.
6/26/2018 - Scientists have used a CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technique developed by Berkeley bioengineer Niren Murthy to lessen some autism symptoms in mice with a form of fragile X syndrome, the most common known single-gene cause of autism spectrum disorder.
