This review discussed the applications of tissue-engineered adipose tissue for disease modeling, provided a basic background to adipose depots, and described 3D in vitro adipose models for obesity, diabetes, and cancer research applications.
Robots used for laparoscopic surgery is one of the most active areas of surgical robots. This article is an overview of the research and development of laparoscope-holder robots, master-slave robots and hand-held robotic forceps.
Aims and scope
BMC Biomedical Engineering is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of biomedical engineering, including fundamental, translational and clinical research. It combines tools and methods from biology and medicine with mathematics, physical sciences and engineering towards the understanding of human biology and disease and the improvement of human health.Sections:
- Biomaterials, nanomedicine and tissue engineering
- Medical technologies, robotics and rehabilitation engineering
- Biosensors and bioelectronics
- Computational and systems biology
- Biomedical Imaging
