International Fellowship Proves Invaluable for One Graduate Student

Josa Hanzlik spends her days looking at images of human tibia bones, or reading articles about bone ingrowth and orthopedic implants. Those are things she could do in Philadelphia. But instead she's doing them in the Netherlands, and she says she's better for it.

Style Meets Engineering in Drexel's Smart Fabric Belly Band

Tummy snugging maternity wear could soon be giving expecting parents peace of mind in addition to stylishly securing waistlines. Researchers at Drexel University are combining fashion design with wireless technology to produce a belly band that will be able to monitor uterine contractions and fetal heart rate in real time.

Drexel Opens A.J. Drexel Institute for Energy and the Environment

Drexel University is opening a new research institute that will strive to answer some of the most challenging questions about energy and environmental sustainability facing the nation today.

Philadelphia Regional Pediatric Medical Device Consortium Receives FDA Funding Receives FDA Funding

For medical devices, as with many medicines, the market for children is a small fraction of the adult market, and there are far fewer child-sized devices. But, of course, the need exists, even if proper devices may not.

How Drexel Shares a 'Family' Connection With a Revolutionary Inventor

Medical-device inventor Wallace Coulter never married, and he had no children. But he does have heirs, and Drexel is one of them.

Drexel, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Hebew University Launch Research Consortium

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia CEO Steven M. Altschuler, Drexel President John A. Fry and Hebrew University of Jerusalem President Menahem Ben-Sasson signed a research agreement today as part of Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter’s trade mission to Israel. The research partnership is designed to focus on pediatric translational research and to develop a collaborative platform for advancing pediatric medicine from the lab to the bedside.

Discovering the Genesis of Nitric Oxide in the Body

Researchers have known for some time that the blood vessels that transport blood to and from tissues and organs in the body are more than just bodily pipelines. Arterioles and capillaries, the small vessels, actually play a key role in regulating the flow of the blood they’re carrying. Biomedical engineers at Drexel University, who study cardiovascular function, are creating a mathematical model that explains just how they do it.

Drexel Biomedical Engineer Helps Locate the Brain's GPS

Using direct human brain recordings, a research team from Drexel University, the University of Pennsylvania, UCLA and Thomas Jefferson University has identified a new type of cell in the brain that helps people to keep track of their relative location while navigating an unfamiliar environment.

Ultrasound Wound Healing

In hopes of helping patients suffering from extremely slow-healing injuries, called chronic wounds, researchers from Drexel’s School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems and College of Medicine are taking a new approach to using ultrasound as a healing tool. By dialing down the energy level on therapeutic ultrasound, similar to that used to treat athletes’ muscle and ligament injuries, the team is finding a solution that could give the body’s natural healing process a boost and could save patients a great deal of time, money and suffering.

CURE Grants

Health research at Drexel University received a boost from the Pennsylvania Department of Health this week as the school was one of four area recipients of Commonwealth Universal Research Enhancement (CURE) Program grants.
