Engineering the microstructure of tissues: introducing melt electrospinning writing

There are a wide range of cases where the human body is unable to heal naturally as a result of serious trauma or disease. Cases such as second- and third-degree burns, damaged blood vessels and large bone defects may require grafting procedures to complement and facilitate the complete healing of the damaged tissue. Repair of large bone defects, which are unable to heal naturally, are typically achieved by transplanting bone from one part of a patient’s body, such as the pelvis, to the ...

Irish engineer’s endoscopic device improves outcomes for liver patients

Engineers can save lives. We don’t think about that a lot of the time. Young people going into medicine for example, do so in the hope that they will be able to help people, to save lives. Do budding engineers think along similar lines? They should if the career of Jimmy Eaton-Evans is anything to go by. Currently developing a simpler, less risky way to cauterise gastro-oesophageal varices, Eaton-Evans has a track record of invention in healthcare. He has been working for multinational ...

Irish and Dutch researchers develop “smart dressing” to transform wound care
