  April 16: Engineering Answers from Within

Rather than engineer tools outside the body, what if we could attack diseases from within? Today’s biomedical engineers are doing just that, using cells and molecules to understand and combat diseases from inside the body. Join Dr. Brian Hoffmann and Dr. Brandon Tefft for a discussion on new approaches to creating cutting-edge treatments in diabetes and heart disease.
