- Medical implants, including heart valves, stents, and grafts; artificial joints, ligaments, and tendons; hearing loss implants; dental implants; and devices that stimulate nerves.
- Methods to promote healing of human tissues, including sutures, clips, and staples for wound closure, and dissolvable dressings.
- Regenerated human tissues, using a combination of biomaterial supports or scaffolds, cells, and bioactive molecules. Examples include a bone-regenerating hydrogel and a lab-grown human bladder.
- Molecular probes and nanoparticles that breakthrough biological barriers and aid in cancer imaging and therapy at the molecular level.
- Biosensors to detect the presence and amount of specific substances and to transmit that data. Examples are blood glucose monitoring devices and brain activity sensors.
- Drug-delivery systems that carry and/or apply drugs to a disease target. Examples include drug-coated vascular stents and implantable chemotherapy wafers for cancer patients.
