A dermal regenerator was the medical tool used to repair spaceship crew members’ wounds on the science fiction TV show “Star Trek.”
Another kind of tissue-repair technique emerging from Arizona State University Professor Kaushal Rege’s research has been compared to the fictional device that healed damaged flesh by simply being passed over a wounded body part… Continue reading.
NIBIB-funded researchers have developed laser-activated nanomaterials that integrate with wounded tissues to form seals that are superior to sutures for containing body fluids and preventing bacterial infection.
Tissue repair following injury or during surgery is conventionally performed with sutures and staples, which can cause tissue damage and complications, including infection. Glues and adhesives have been developed to address some of these issues but can introduce new problems that include toxicity, poor adhesion, and inhibition of the body’s natural healing processes, such as cell migration into the wound space… Continue reading.
WASHINGTON, D.C.— The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the pending induction of Kaushal Rege, Ph.D., Professor, Chemical Engineering, Arizona State University, to its College of Fellows. Dr. Rege was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows For outstanding contributions to novel nanomaterials for photothermal repair of soft tissues and molecular delivery.
