  Penn Bioengineers Show Why Lab-made Stem Cells Might Fail: Errors in DNA Folding
In a study led by Jennifer Phillips-Cremins, Assistant Professor in Bioengineering, and Jonathan Beagan, a graduate student in her lab, Penn researchers have discovered that lab-made stem cells might not produce iPS cells that are equivalent to the pluripotent stem cells found in embryos, as some clones retain folding patterns that partially resemble those found in the adult cells from which they are made.

  Penn Engineers Use Network Science to Predict How Ligaments Fail
Beth Winkelstein, Danielle Bassett and graduate student Sijia Zhang, of Bioengineering, team up using network science to gain new insights into "subfailure" injuries, which can lead to pain and dysfunction despite the lack of obvious physical evidence. The mechanisms that lead to these symptoms happen on a microscopic level and can't be detected by existing clinical tools.
