One idea for treating disease is to be able to program cells. Now, a major advance in synthetic biology allows for that kind of control that hasn't been seen before. The Institute for Protein Design...
Recent studies indicate that infants born prematurely have a higher risk of developing heart disease later in life. Now, researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle have...
Bioengineers have cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3D printing replacement organs. It's a breakthrough technique for bioprinting tissues with exquisitely entangled vascular networks that mimic...
It's scary to think about, but an infection during pregnancy, whether the flu or a urinary tract infection, appears to increase a child's risk of being diagnosed with depression or autism. ...
The sci-Plex technique holds promise for cell biology research in cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, prenatal medicine and many other medical and basic science areas. Results from...
"What if we could build a remote control for cells?" That was the wild idea Kelly Stevens and Daniel Corbett had. Stevens, assistant professor of bioengineering and laboratory medicine and pathology...
SIDS, or sudden infant death syndrome, can devastate families and leave them questioning what went wrong. There are multiple causes for SIDS. Hannele Ruohola-Baker and her lab at the UW Medicine ...
In space, an astronaut's heart works harder, and that can lead to problems. That's why Nate Sniadecki, professor of mechanical engineering and an investigator with UW Medicine's Institute for Stem...

Lab activity in Dr. Paul Yager's lab reflects work on paper-based diagnostics. Their hope is that in two to three years, people miles from a lab will be able to cough, spit, or urinate on a piece of...
