The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation has teamed up with Case Western Reserve University — the leading patent-producing university in the state.

First recipient of implanted brain-recording and muscle-stimulating systems reanimates limb that had been stilled for eight years

New integrated technologies allow coaches, physicians, and trainers to better understand the physical demands of athletes in real time.

What do basketball and biomedical engineering have in common? They are both areas where universities compete.

BME Biomaterials Faculty score lead roles at multiple GRC conferences

Reversing Paralysis: Scientists are making remarkable progress at using brain implants to restore the freedom of movement that spinal cord injuries take away.

BME graduate student's work with Dr Pallavi Tiwari (PI) highlighted: Computer vision is a sub-domain of artificial intelligence that deals with how computers gain high level understanding through acquiring, processing and analyzing digital images and video.

Combining human and computer assessments might yield even better accuracy, reported Prateek Prasanna, a PhD student at Case Western Research University in Cleveland, Ohio.

His patent is titled “Histogram of hosoya index (HoH) features for quantitative histomorphometry.”

An interdisciplinary team used an MRI quantification technique called "shape atlasing" to detect subtle deformations in cancerous prostate glands, finding a consistent anterior bulge among the patient cohort.

NPR broadcasted their segment "Navigating Cancer" series featuring MRI-guided biopsy for prostate cancer. 

Potential biomarker of disease appears to be free of troubling image variability

The nexus between man and machine. Human touch. The tactile sensation that engages us with the world in a way perhaps no other sense can.

Predicting disease outcome through digital pathology-based imaging.

When Keith Vonderhuevel lost his arm in a factory accident, he never thought that he'd be able to feel his hand again. That may very well change. Keith is currently a research subject at the Cleveland VA Sensory Restoration Lab, where a team of engineers is pioneering prostheses that allow amputees to feel touch, pressure and intensity.

National technology journalist David Pogue visited the Interactive Commons to discuss work using HoloLens for education.

The 2017 Request for Applications (RFA) is now open. This is the 1st year of the third phase of Translational Research Partnership (TRP) between Case Western Reserve and the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation. 

CWRU and ICBM Medical Inc. signed a one-year option-to-license agreement to commercially advance a low-cost, rapid catalytic biomarker technology that improves patient screening and monitoring for a range of clinical conditions, from concussion to prostate cancer.

Case Western Reserve University researchers have developed a portable sensor that can assess the clotting ability of a person’s blood 95 times faster than current methods—using only a single drop of blood. XaTek, a new Cleveland-based company, licensed the technology for the device—called ClotChip—with a goal of bringing it to market within the next three years.
