Congratulations to Monica Lin and colleagues for “Smart bone plates can monitor fracture healing” in Scientific Reports

Monica C. Lin, Diane Hu, Meir Marmor, Safa T. Herfat, Chelsea S. Bahney & Michel M. Maharbiz, “Smart bone plates can monitor fracture healing,” Scientific Reports, 9, Article number: 2122 (2019)  There are currently no standardized methods for assessing fracture healing, with physicians relying on X-rays which are only useful at later stages of repair.…

A. Liao, H. W. Harris and M. M. Maharbiz, “A Coupled Magnetoelastic Strain Sensor Array for Guiding and Monitoring Hernia Repairs,” IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering is out!

Congrats Amy Liao! A. Liao, H. W. Harris and M. M. Maharbiz, “A Coupled Magnetoelastic Strain Sensor Array for Guiding and Monitoring Hernia Repairs,” in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. doi: 10.1109/TBME.2018.2834361 Ventral hernia repairs using mesh prosthetics suffer from high recurrence rates, with 10-20% of repairs failing within three years. Uneven distribution of stress within…

Lu, Bochao, and Michel M. Maharbiz. “Germanium as a scalable sacrificial layer for nanoscale protein patterning.” PloS one 13.4 (2018) is out

Congratulations to Bochao Lu! Lu, Bochao, and Michel M. Maharbiz. “Germanium as a scalable sacrificial layer for nanoscale protein patterning.” PloS one 13.4 (2018). We demonstrate the use of germanium (Ge) films as water-soluble features that allow the patterning of proteins onto surfaces with commonly used organic solvents. This technique is scalable for manufacturing and is compatible…
