BUFFALO, N.Y. — The new Department of Materials Design and
Innovation (MDI) in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
at the University at Buffalo has just completed its first full
academic year of operation and it is marking that milestone with
Bloch Symposium in Materials Design and Innovation at UB.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The idea behind Efferent Labs –
implanting a device containing living cells into the body to act as
a biologic sensor – has attracted the attention of the
scientific community. Although it is extremely difficult
technically, the idea of using the body’s own biology to
detect changes and possible threats captures the imaginations of
scientists and doctors.
