SharathChandra C, B H V Mani Kanta Swamy, G VijayaBhaskar B.Tech III year students of Biomedical Engineering, B. V. Raju Institute of Technology, Narsapur won First Prize in BioAsia 2015 Healthcare Devthon. The team was given Rs. 1 lakh grant for further development of the product and the team will be working with Technology Business Incubation Center, BITS Pilani (Hyderabad Campus).
BioAsia 2015 was an initiative to spur innovations in healthcare & life sciences through co-creation. Healthcare Devthon brought together healthcare experts, doctors, designers, engineers, technologists and developers together onto one platform to discover, design and rapidly prototype technologies and solutions relevant to the life sciences and healthcare fields. The goal is to facilitate the development of products and services that address unmet needs and are positioned to be rapidly adopted by end-users.

Researchers at Purdue University’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering are in the process of developing scaffold-like materials that promises to speed up the recovery process for patients. The wound healing material has a fast curing time once inside the body.
Alyssa Panitch, an associate professor at Purdue University, heads the research team that discovered the liquid wound healing material, after numerous years of clinical testing at the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering. The material is being touted as a modern medicine breakthrough and promises to create an expedited process for burn victims and those that require the fastest recovery time possible.
The research is showing that the liquid material can be injected directly into a wound site and will solidify and fill any space needed. Once inside the body, the liquid spreads out and forms an almost immediate bonding for repairs of such wound treatments as mending damaged bones, spinal cord fusions, arterial reattachment, and other tissue rebuilding procedures.
