Two professors in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Engineering’s work has been highlighted in Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME). The goal of TBME is to publish original contributions in any area of biomedical engineering that report novel engineering methods with demonstrated biomedical significance.
Congratulations to Jon Dobson, professor of biomedical engineering and Kyle Allen, assistant professor in biomedical engineering, for their recent featured article in TBME. The paper “Investigation of the capture of magnetic particles from high-viscosity fluids using permanent magnets” was co-written with Dr. David P. Arnold, professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Florida. The goal of this research is to investigate the practicality of using a small, permanent magnet to capture magnetic particles out of high-viscosity biological fluids, such as synovial fluid. In the long term, this research aims to facilitate optimization of the collection of magnetic particle-biomarker conjugates from high-viscosity biological fluids without the need to remove the fluid from a patient.
Congratulations to Drs. Dobson, Allen and Arnold!
