In animal study, implant churns out CAR-T cells to combat cancer

Researchers from NC State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed an implantable biotechnology that produces and releases CAR-T cells for attacking cancerous tumors. In a proof-of-concept study involving lymphoma in mice, the researchers found that treatment with the implants was faster and more effective than conventional CAR-T cell cancer treatment.

Engineering alumni establish new endowment for Caldwell Fellows program

The Caldwell Fellows Program is excited to celebrate the establishment of a new endowment by two of our alumni with a unique story. Allison Anderson (BS Biomedical Engineering ’05; MS Industrial Engineering ‘07) and David Anderson (BS Mechanical Engineering ’05) met during their time in the Caldwell Fellows Program. It had such a significant impact on their lives, that they decided to establish a new named fund that will honor this impact and benefit students in the program.
