Repairing Organs with the Touch of a Nano-Chip

Nanochip could heal injuries or regrow organs with one touch by a device that instantly delivers new DNA or RNA into living skin cells to change their function.

What’s a nano chip?
A nanochip is an electronic integrated circuit so small that it can only be measured in the
nanometer scale. The nanochip scale has been the goal of modern technology. With nanochips it would be possible to have computers the size of micro SD cards but thousands of times more powerful because so many more components could fit in a very small space.

6th Biomedical Engineering International Conference (BMEiCON2013)

Topics/Call fo Papers

The 6th Biomedical Engineering International Conference (BMEiCON2013) is intended to provide an international forum where researchers, practitioners, and professionals interested in the advances in, and applications of, biomedical engineering can exchange the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas through presentation and discussion. All presented papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. Also selected papers are encouraged to publish in the International Journal of Applied Biomedical Engineering (IJABME). The BMEiCON2013 will be held in Krabi, Thailand, on October 23?25, 2013.
Krabi locates on Southern Thailand’s East Coast where is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Krabi is a great place to relax and much of the province has been designated national park. The Krabi coastline is dotted with rarely visited tropical islands, palm fringed beaches, waterfalls, caves, and strange rock formations. The organizing committee is pleased to invite all researchers, engineers, physicians, scientists, technicians, and technologists to attend and help shaping the future of biomedical engineering. The topics for regular sessions include, but are not limited to, the followings:
-Biomedical signal processing
Biomedical imaging and image processing
-Bioinstrumentation
-Bio?robotics and biomechanics
– Bio Informatics
-Biosensors and Biomaterials
-Cardiovascular and respiratory systems engineering
-Cellular and Tissue Engineering
-Healthcare information systems
-Human machine/computer interface
Medical device design
-Neural and rehabilitation engineering
-Technology commercialization, industry, education, and society
-Telemedicine
-Therapeutic and diagnostics systems
-Recent advancements in biomedical engineering
Submission of Papers
Prospective authors are invited to submit full?length papers, including figures, tables, and references, via our website. All papers will be peer reviewed and handled electronically.
All papers submitted must be previously unpublished and may not be considered for publication elsewhere at any time during the review period. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference.
Special Session Proposal
Special session proposal must include a topical title, rationale, session outline, contact information, and a list of invited speakers. Special session authors are referred to our website for additional information regarding submissions.

Jelly Fish made from Rat Cells, Sillicone: BioEngineering Innovation

Researchers have used elastic silicone and rat muscle cells to create a freely swimming jellyfish.

Colorized image of the tissue-engineered jellyfish, "swimming" in a container of ocean-like saltwater. Dubbed "Medusoid," the bioengineered construct is made from silicone rubber and powered by lab-grown heart tissue. It was built in a proof-of-concept study at Caltech and Harvard for designing muscular pumps for biomedical applications. (Credit: Caltech and Harvard)

“A big goal of our study was to advance tissue engineering,” says Janna Nawroth, a doctoral student in biology at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech)and lead author of the study. “In many ways, it is still a very qualitative art, with people trying to copy a tissue or organ just based on what they think is important or what they see as the major components—without necessarily understanding if those components are relevant to the desired function or without analyzing first how different materials could be used.”

I am a Fresher B.E Biomedical !! What Next??

I think this “title” will be the most familiar thing to you, if not you then it is for me. This is the most common question for which a fresher is seeking answers. The thing is that this question is everywhere but answer is no where. So I thought I should address this issue in the form of a post so that everybody can benefit from it.

Actually the thing is that we are facing joblessness after B.E, it is not because we dont know anything or we aren’t well qualified, the reason is we are lazy as well as unaware or immature about ” What we want from our life?” It might sound Philosophical and offensive but it is cent percent true.
