Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Current medical technology to replace heart valves is problematic for the patient. Patients with mechanical heart valves must take anticoagulation therapy to prevent blood clots. This solution can cause morbidity. Patients with bioprosthetic heart valves face degeneration and calcification of the implanted valve over time, which may cause more than one surgery in the lifetime […]

Avoiding food contamination with a durable coating for hard surfaces

Avoiding food contamination with a durable coating for hard surfaces

In the future, a durable coating could help keep food-contact surfaces clean in the food processing industry, including in meat processing plants. A new study from a team of University of Missouri engineers and food scientists demonstrates that the coating — made from titanium dioxide — is capable of eliminating foodborne germs, such as salmonella […]

The New Tattoo: Drawing Electronics on Skin

The New Tattoo: Drawing Electronics on Skin

One day, people could monitor their own health conditions by simply picking up a pencil and drawing a bioelectronic device on their skin. In a new study, University of Missouri engineers demonstrated that the simple combination of pencils and paper could be used to create devices that might be used to monitor personal health. Their […]
