The Age of Living Machines by
Call Number: TA164.2 .H63 2019
Publication Date: 2019-05-07
Outlines the next technology revolution and how it will change human life, drawing on the latest discoveries in biology and engineering to profile such innovations as computer-engineered crops, protein-based water filters, and cancer-detecting nanoparticles.
Call Number: R856 .B458 2015
Publication Date: 2015-02-02
This step-by-step guide to medical technology innovation, now in full color, has been rewritten to reflect recent trends of industry globalization and value-conscious healthcare. Written by a team of medical, engineering, and business experts, the authors provide a comprehensive resource that leads students, researchers, and entrepreneurs through a proven process for the identification, invention, and implementation of new solutions. Case studies on innovative products from around the world, successes and failures, practical advice, and end-of-chapter 'Getting Started' sections encourage readers to learn from real projects and apply important lessons to their own work.
Bioinspired Devices by
Call Number: R856 .G66 2018
Publication Date: 2018-01-08
Robotic exoskeletons that allow stroke survivors to regain use of their limbs, 3D-printed replacement body parts, and dozens of other innovations still in schematic design are revolutionizing the treatment of debilitating injuries and nervous system disorders. What all these technologies have in common is that they are modeled after engineering strategies found in nature, strategies developed by a vast array of organisms over eons of evolutionary trial and error. Eugene Goldfield lays out many principles of engineering found in the natural world, with a focus on how evolutionary and developmental adaptations, such as sensory organs and spinal cords, function within complex organisms. Goldfield offers an insider's view of cutting-edge research, and envisions a future in which synthetic and biological devices share energy sources and control, blurring the boundary between nature and medicine.
Biomedical Engineering Fundamentals by
Call Number: R856 .B56 2015 v.1-4
Publication Date: 2014-12-17
This is a continuation of the Third Edition published in 2006. This work has become the definitive "Bible" of the field of Biomedical Engineering. As such, it has served as a major reference for all practicing biomedical engineers and students. This book has updated material within all Sections. In addition, this new book will contain the majority of totally new sections such as Stem Cell Engineering and Personalized Medicine

This is a continuously updated eJournal published through PubMed, sponsored by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (Great Britain).
Computational Biomechanics for Medicine by
Call Number: R859 .C65 2015eb
Publication Date: 2015-04-25
The Computational Biomechanics (eBook) for Medicine titles provide an opportunity for specialists in computational biomechanics to present their latest methodologies and advancements. Some of the interesting topics discussed are: real-time simulations; growth and remodeling of soft tissues; inverse and meshless solutions; medical image analysis; and patient-specific solid mechanics simulations. One of the greatest challenges facing the computational engineering community is to extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional engineering, in particular to biology, the biomedical sciences, and medicine.
Neural Engineering by
Call Number: R856 .N475 2016
Publication Date: 2016-07-06
This book covers the principles of advanced 3D fabrication techniques, stem cells and biomaterials for neural engineering. Renowned contributors cover topics such as neural tissue regeneration, peripheral and central nervous system repair, brain-machine interfaces and in vitro nervous system modeling. Within these areas, focus remains on exciting and emerging technologies such as highly developed neuroprostheses and the communication channels between the brain and prostheses, enabling technologies that are beneficial for development of therapeutic interventions, advanced fabrication techniques such as 3D bioprinting, photolithography, microfluidics, and subtractive fabrication, and the engineering of implantable neural grafts.
