Dr. Murthy Honored by Society for Biomaterials
Niren Murthy, BME assistant professor, recently received the 2009 Young Investigator Award from the Society for Biomaterials. This honor is given annually to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding achievements in the field of biomaterials research within ten years following his terminal degree or formal training.http://biomaterials.org
Replacing Hydrogen in Fluorescent Dyes Improves Detection & Shelf Life
"By swapping out one specific hydrogen atom for an isotope twice as heavy, researchers have increased the shelf life and detection ability of fluorescent probes that are essential to studying variety of inflammatory diseases, including cancer and atherosclerosis. The probes detect and measure reactive oxygen, which play an important role in disease processes." more...http://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=60130http://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=60130shapeimage_14_link_0
