  Play Hard, Work Harder: Taking it to the Edge on the Court and in the Classroom
 
From mid-August to late November, even as they face down the inevitable intellectual challenges of a new academic year, the women engineers of Penn Volleyball practice their sport three hours a day, four days a week. Add to this their all-important Division I competitions, with many players spending additional hours on the road traveling to games out of state. Despite their rigorous schedules, however, the exemplary student-athletes make it work.

  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.
