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.

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.

PEF breast cancer detection technology DoH grant

Physicians could soon have a new, noninvasive and radiation-free option when it comes to performing regular breast exams. A hand-held device, using technology developed at Drexel University, that can detect cancer by sensing the elasticity of breast tissue is moving into the final stages of testing and development with help from a Pennsylvania Department of Health grant.

Rio+20 Conference Focuses on Solutions for Global Sustainability

In 1992, the United Nations held a summit to find a way to lift billions of people out of poverty without exhausting the planet’s resources. Twenty years later, experts from around the globe—including Drexel’s Dr. Dov Jaron—convened once again to move beyond the political promises of the 1990s and begin accomplishing goals.
