Sharan Ramaswamy receives U.S. Patent for Flow-Stretch-Flexure Bioreactor

Sharan Ramaswamy, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and his co-inventor team received a U.S. patent for their novel bioreactor for use in mechanobiological studies of engineered tissues. Ramaswamy’s bioreactor is designed for dynamically culturing engineered tissues across physiologically-relevant scales of flow, cyclic stretch and cyclic flexure, or any combination of these states. In other words, […]
