U.S. biomedical engineers say they have built complex-shaped microtissues in a Petri dish by assembling small blocks of living cell clusters. The Brown University scientists said their achievement, using a 3-D Petri dish they invented, helps advance the field of tissue engineering and could reduce the need for some animal research. Professor Jeffrey Morgan, who led the research, said it has enormous implications for basic cell biology, drug discovery and tissue research. He said the tissues...

By Dooley, Jim to be an agricultural or biological engineer these days! When I started my career as an agricultural engineer in the late 1960s, nuclear energy was touted as being "too cheap to meter," water was abundant and clean enough to drink from the creek, and the industrial chemists were claiming that agriculture was obsolete because we would soon be taking our nourishment in the form of little pills. Engineers and policy makers failed to recognize that technology has consequences for...

By Elaine Regus, The Press-Enterprise, Riverside, Calif. Jul. 15--Jerome Schultz is a curious man. Curious about how kidneys separate good molecules from toxic ones. Curious about whether molecules from a jellyfish could be used to help diabetics monitor their glucose. And, curious about what Noah's Ark in the 21st century would look like. Throughout his career, Schultz, chairman of UC Riverside's Department of Bioengineering, has parlayed that curiosity into dozens of major...
