An eye toward better treatment

Every two months, North­eastern bio­engi­neering grad­uate stu­dent David Walsh’s 91-​​year-​​old grand­mother goes to the doctor to receive a drug injec­tion into her eyes. She has wet age-​​related mac­ular degen­er­a­tion. There is no cure, only this inva­sive, recur­ring treatment. “She wor­ries a lot because she goes in, they inject her, and she leaves, and since the effect of the drugs […]

3Qs: A 3-​​D printout for your health

The field of 3-​​D printing tech­nology is rev­o­lu­tion­izing indus­tries across the spec­trum, from the arts to elec­tronics. We asked Con­stan­tinos Mavroidis, Dis­tin­guished Pro­fessor of Engi­neering, to explain how the approach, which is capable of rapidly pro­ducing low-​​cost three-​​dimensional struc­tures the same way an ink-​​jet printer cre­ates a two-​​dimensional image, is begin­ning to do the same […]

The Risk of Carrying a Cup of Coffee

Object manip­u­la­tion or tool use is almost a uniquely human trait, said Dagmar Sternad, director of Northeastern’s Action Lab, a research group inter­ested in move­ment coor­di­na­tion. “Not only does it require cer­tain cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties but also dis­tinct motor abilities.” Simply moving one’s own body, for instance by directing a hand toward a coffee cup, requires the […]
