NIH Biomedical Engineers Shape Tomorrow’s Technology
The unassuming salamander has the remarkable ability to regenerate a lost limb. Could we ever regenerate tissue that way or even grow new body parts? What might hidden biological processes happening at the nanoscale teach us about human health? Can mathematical equations be used to understand and predict the behavior of complex biological systems? How can artificial intelligence be effectively used as a tool for biomedical research? Bioengineers at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) are asking such questions—and striking up trans-NIH collaborations to answer them.
