A Revolution in the Making

Engineering school's new RapidTech center could alter U.S. manufacturing

Imagine being able to sketch a new musical instrument or design a lifesaving medical part and within hours have in hand a three-dimensional prototype with details as precise as one-twentieth the width of a human hair.

UC Irvine’s Marc Madou, Chancellor’s Professor of mechanical & aerospace engineering, is working closely with Tommaso Baldacchini, a staff scientist at Newport Corp., on manufacturing technology that could do just that – radically changing how things are made.

Improving Biomedical Implants

UCI researcher Wendy Liu is trying to make the lifesaving devices less life-threatening

Every year, more than half a million people in the United States undergo surgery for biomedical implants – like stents or heart valves – intended to save their lives, according to the American Heart Association. Unfortunately, these devices themselves can sometimes cause a potentially fatal immune system response.

To help prevent this, UC Irvine biomedical engineer Wendy Liu is researching safer coatings for implants that dissolve inside the body when their work is done.
