ASU researchers address a primary cause of treatment failure for pancreatic cancer
As the second leading cause of death worldwide, cancer is a focal point in both clinical research and health care fields, but not all cancers are created equal.

Biomedical engineers work at the interface of technology and medicine on challenges that are critical to the advancement of health and scientific discovery.
At ASU, we offer a rigorous program in biomedical engineering with opportunities for students to be involved in research, entrepreneurship, healthcare delivery, biomedical device design and global health.
Prosthetics have advanced from the simplistic apparatuses of only several decades ago to today’s complex interfaces of devices and biological systems that are designed to resemble missing body parts and replicate their functions.
While clues to treating diseases that ravage the body and mind later in life sometimes appear in early stages of human development, studying a subject’s entire lifespan is neither efficient nor practical. So how can researchers study these early stages to combat diseases that manifest themselves later on?
There are more technically precise descriptions of what’s at the core of a growing trend broadening the horizons of biomedical engineering than “the soft, squishy side of bioengineering.”
