Vol. 16, No. 7Bacterial Relay for Energy-Efficient Molecular Communications
In multi-cellular organisms, molecular signaling spans multiple distance scales and is essential to tissue structure and functionality. Molecular communications is increasingly researched and developed as a key subsystem in the Internet-of-Nano-Things paradigm.
Vol. 16, No. 7Transport of Liposome Encapsulated Drugs in Voxelized Computational Model of Human Brain Tumors
There are many obstacles in the transport of chemotherapeutic drugs to tumor cells that lead to irregular and non-uniform uptake of drugs inside tumors. The study of these transport problems will help with accurate prediction of drug transport and optimizing treatment strategy.
Vol. 16, No. 6Terahertz Channel Model and Link Budget Analysis for Intrabody Nanoscale Communication
Nanosized devices operating inside the human body open up new prospects in the healthcare domain. Invivo wireless nanosensor networks (iWNSNs) will result in a plethora of applications ranging from intrabody health-monitoring to drug-delivery systems.
Vol. 16, No. 6Atomic Force Microscopy in Characterizing Cell Mechanics for Biomedical Applications: A Review
Cell mechanics is a novel label-free biomarker for indicating cell states and pathological changes. The advent of atomic force microscopy (AFM) provides a powerful tool for quantifying the mechanical properties of single living cells in aqueous conditions.
Vol. 16, No. 6A Fast Algorithm for Analysis of Molecular Communication in Artificial Synapse
In this paper, we analyze molecular communications (MCs) in a proposed artificial synapse (AS), whose main difference from biological synapses (BSs) is that it is closed, i.e., transmitter molecules cannot diffuse out from AS.
Vol. 16, No. 5IEEE BIBM 2016 Special Issue
Bioinformatics and biomedicine research is fundamental to our understanding of complex biological systems, impacting the science and technology of fields ranging from agricultural and environmental sciences to pharmaceutical and medical sciences.
