The Center of Bioengineering Innovation & Design at Johns Hopkins University has recently received the honor to boast the first place winner of the 2011 ASME IShow: a competition inspiring students to invest in their own innovation and entrepreneurialism to develop a sustainable business model of a medical, technological, or robotic nature.
Recently, Harvard scientists took on the challenge of expanding the catheter's capabilities to address specific requirements of open heart surgery while simultaneously offering a significantly less invasive approach to complex cardiac procedures.
This story not only amazed us but brought home how important the work of researchers and medical equipment technology developers is in real time, right now, for saving the lives of actual people. Read the update below, too. -- 12/23/2011

We're very pleased to announce the newest addition to the Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. Front Line Event Calendar: on November 2 of this year (2011) we will hold our 1st Annual BioResearch Product Faire show on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin (UTA). Front Line events have been extremely popular since we introduced them in 2010 as an alternative to our larger expositions, typically for a special request venue or a more targeted audience. In the case of UT Austin we're venturing onto a campus without a medical school (yet), though that hasn't prevented the University from being a huge recipient of federal research grants.
At this time of year especially, our hearts seem to go out all the more to those in need, which is why we like this blog, which we've updated with a recent video which should bring a smile to your face. Please consider donating your excess inventory in 2012! --updated(12/23/2011)

The University of Arizona just received a multi-million dollar research funding contract from the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) to polish the mirror for the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST).
When the President launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) last month, a key component was the National Robotics Initiative (NRI), which will pool the resources of multiple government agencies to support the development of robots designed to augment the work and health of human beings. These are known as assistive systems, in contrast to the totalitarian robots of science fiction dystopias that threaten to supplant humans.

Innovation is described as "the creation or improvement of products, technologies, and ideas", and is the core reason education, the economy, and society progress from simple forms to more sophisticated and complex organisms.
In a speech given at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh on June 24, President Obama announced the launch of the $500M Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) between university research science, government agencies, and industry to increase investment in technologies that create 21st Century manufacturing jobs here in the United States. In addition to Carnegie Mellon, the research institutions involved in the initiative are: the University of Michigan, the University of California-Berkeley, MIT, Stanford, and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Update your Rolodex: the Departments of Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Medical School no longer exist. With an eye to streamlining infrastructure costs and keeping up with the latest directions in biomedical research, the three former departments have been rolled into two new entities: the Department of Neuroscience and the Department of Cell and Regenerative Biology.
