  Engineers As Artists
 
Penn Engineers Sarah Organ, Ryan Solomon, Arjun Shankar and Emily Peters, are members of a unique cohort of students who are able to label their learning styles as both “left brain” (analytical, qualitative) and “right brain” (artistic, intuitive). In a world where both disciplines rarely converge, they show that engineers are fundamentally creators, whether they are developing the next biomedical or nanotech devices, or using their voices to sing or bodies to dance.

  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.

  Penn Researchers Establish Universal Signature Fundamental to How Glassy Materials Fail
  To find a link between seemingly disparate disordered materials, an interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers at Penn Engineering and Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences with expertise in various materials studiedan unprecedented range of disordered solids with constituent particles ranginng from individual atoms to river rocks. Understanding materials failure on a fundamental level could pave the way for designing more shatter-resistant glasses or predicting geological phenomena like landslides.
