Bioengineers Get NIH Award for On-Chip Models of Human Heart and Liver

Via UC Berkeley Engineering | July 24, 2012

Bioengineering professors Kevin Healy and Luke Lee and collaborators have been awarded a two-year, $1.7 million boost to develop on-chip models of living human heart and liver tissue from the NIH. The grant is part of the Tissue Chip for Drug Screening program, an initiative to help predict the safety of drugs more quickly and cost-effectively, and thereby speed the development of effective therapeutics.


Healy Wins Clemson Award

Via UC Berkeley Bioengineering | April 15, 2011

Bioengineering and Materials Science & Engineering Professor Kevin Healy was awarded the 2011 Clemson Award for Basic Research from the Society for Biomaterials.

Healy was honored for contributions to the basic knowledge and understanding of the interaction of materials with tissue, evidenced by significant research, important original publications in the literature and/or frequent reference to and reliance on this work by subsequent researchers.

The award was presented at the 2011 Society for Biomaterials annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.
