Liu
Researchers advance the art of drug testing
Linda Lowe-Krentz, Yaling Liu and Daniel Ou-Yang recently received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a method of testing drugs that selectively kills cancer cells. | more >

Berger/McIntosh
A tank full of sunlight and bacteria
Backed by a $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation, the Lehigh research team of chemical engineering professors Steve McIntosh and Bryan Berger are working to create a promising new method of producing renewable fuel. | more >

Berdichevsky
ECE professor wins award to help support continued epilepsy research
Yevgeny Berdichevsky, assistant professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, has been awarded a one-year, $100,000 Taking Flight Award to support his research into abnormal neural circuitry—a potential cause of epilepsy. | more >

Berger
ChemE professor Bryan Berger wins National Innovation Award
Assistant professor of chemical engineering Bryan Berger has been awarded a National Innovation Award at TechConnect World, the world’s largest multi-disciplinary multi-sector conference and marketplace of vetted innovations, innovators and technology business developers and funders. | more >

Pimentel
Bioengineering undergrad shines at Undergrad Research Symposium
Corrin Pimentel '14 took home the 2013 People's Choice Award Winner for her project "Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 Effects on Epilepsy." Pimentel, whose interest in the field is spurred by her own battle with epilepsy, conducted her research under the direction of Yevgeny Berdichevsky. | more >

Zhou
Finding surface tension in compliant solid materials
Jagota, director of Lehigh’s bioengineering program, has long wondered if some solids might exhibit surface tension. At the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (INM) in Germany and at Cornell University, he and his collaborators experimented with rubber-like elastomers and a more compliant gelatin similar in stiffness to human tissue. | more >

Zhang
Fighting heart disease one molecule at a time
Understanding how and why white blood cells attach to blood vessel walls may be critical in treating atherosclerosis. Xiaohui “Frank” Zhang, assistant professor in the bioengineering program and mechanical engineering and mechanics, is at the forefront of that effort. | more >

Cheng
For Biological Threats, a Nanodefense
Xuanhong Cheng and James Hwang are working to achieve compact and fast DNA sequencing from a single cell. This could lead to the development of a hand-held device capable of identifying the presence of biological threats and thus saving lives. | more >

Jagota
Healing the sick with nano-bio hybrids
If their interactions can be controlled, these combinations may lead to new cancer treatments and medical diagnoses | more >

Mittal
Finding order in intrinsically disordered proteins
Yaling Liu envisions the day when physicians can detect cancers before they are visible to modern diagnostic tools and then rocket drugs to cancerous cells in doses that treat the disease but don’t kill surrounding tissues. | more >

Bartoli
Moving towards "real-time” detection of proteins
Researchers focus on the interference pattern created by the coupling of light with electrons. | more >

Cheng
Going with the tiniest of flows
The modern age offers abundant opportunities to a person with an interest in medicine, an aptitude for science and mathematics – and a willingness to venture well outside one’s comfort zone. This was the case for Lehigh's Xuanhong Cheng. | more >
