Bioengineering is a technology that applies engineering to various aspects of biology. It aims to analyze, modify, and control biological systems in order to design and create products that can replace, augment, or sustain biological, chemical or mechanical processes (e.g. prosthetics, and implants).
Tallest of Towers Erected on Tiniest of ScalesBiomedical engineers have erected some of the tallest of towers on the tiniest of scales by getting biological molecules to do the labor.
BMP4 and Noggin improve bone regenerationNoggin was observed to improve bone regeneration, and exhibits a better control over its effects to prevent undesired bone regeneration and bone overgrowth (e.g. regulating the expression of BMP4).
Inventor Of Artificial Hand Sees "Bionic" Replacement Parts Becoming More HumanBionic limb replacements that look and work exactly like the real thing will likely remain a Hollywood fantasy, but fast advances in human-to-machine communication and miniaturization could bring the technology close within a decade.
