Scientists from Case Western Reserve University and University of Kansas Medical Center have restored function using a neural prosthesis in a biologic model of brain injury.Read More
Ultimately, the team hopes to develop a device that rapidly and substantially improves function after brain injury in humans. There is no such commercial treatment for the 1.5 million Americans, including soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, who suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBI), or the nearly 800,000 stroke victims who suffer weakness or paralysis in the United States, annually.

Professor Dan Lacks and 12 of his master's students took part in what the U.S. Department of State is hailing as the first U.S. college course in Myanmar. Lacks, the C. Benson Branch Professor of Chemical Engineering, proposed the class through the State Department’s Fulbright Specialist Program, after helping to train faculty at Yangon Technological University this summer. He was the first U.S. engineering professor involved in that effort. Him and the students teamed up with faculty and master's students from Myanmar in an intensive two-week peer-learning class titled International Engineering Entrepreneurship.Read More
