  Navigating Medical Device Development at Every Stage
 
The Penn Health-Tech Center for Health, Devices, and Technology hopes to unite Penn's strengths in medicine, engineering, business, and education to connect researchers across disciplines and provide a starting point for them to create technologies that address the world's urgent health care needs. The Center launched in May with a symposium that presented speakers and projects that highlighted clinicians and engineers throughout the University who are working in this space.

  Engineering Project to Create 'Molecular Portrait' of Every Cell in the Body
  According to Arjun Raj, assistant professor in Bioengineering, the field of biology has traditionally been about looking at the average properties of cells all at once creating difficulty when learning about individual cells and how they're different from one another. Rather than using the conventional approach of looking at the average properties of cells, the Human Cell Atlas, a project that Raj is a part of, is creating reference maps of every cell type in the human body.

  Penn Researchers Develop an Injectable Gel that Helps Heart Muscle Regenerate after a Heart Attack
 
In a paper co-led by Jason Burdick, professor in Bioengineering,researchers at Penn Engineering and the Perelman School of Medicine have used mouse models to demonstrate a new approach to restart replication in existing cardiomyocytes: an injectable gel that slowly releases short gene sequences known as microRNAs into the heart muscle.

  Researchers Use WWII Code-breaking Techniques to Interpret Brain Data
  In a study led by Konrad Kording, Penn Integrates Knowledge Professor in Bioengineering and Neuroscience, a team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Northwestern University have now used cryptographic techniques to decode the activity of motor neurons. Their approach has allowed them to predict, from brain data, and with only generic knowledge of typical movements, which direction monkeys will move their arms.
