Researchers at Carnegie Mellon and UPMC have found a noninvasive way to better understand traumatic brain injury in humans.

"We found that the genes responsible for cell death, cancer cell reproduction, and white blood cell regulation were upregulated after impact, so we can imagine targeting those genes with supplements to prevent or slow disease."

Bringing donor organs back to life 01/05/2024

Adding to a globally growing transplant list is the need for a reliable technology to accurately determine if organs are suitable for transplant and to increase the number of these suitable organs. Carnegie Mellon Biomedical Engineering (BME)'s Ren lab is teaming up with UPMC and University of Wisconsin-Madison to reshape current practice related to organ transplants, by introducing a novel platform to study protein dynamics within the donor graft.

Bringing donor organs back to life A new platform aims to discover novel biomarkers to evaluate organ quality after donation, but before transplantation, and reveal new therapeutic targets to improve donor organ function.

Curing cancer is not enough 12/14/2023

"I’ve gotten to a point in my research where I know a lot about the field and have seen incredible solutions for treating cancer, but it’s all inaccessible to patients for a variety of reasons. This very much pushed me towards the health policy side as a way to do a lot of good in the world.”

Carnegie Mellon Biomedical Engineering (BME) Ph.D. student Colette Bilynsky pursues both cancer research and health policy to ensure that potential cures are affordable and accessible to all.
