Resolve Magazine: Volume 1, 2010

Engineering Affordable Medicine

Welcome to the Spring 2010 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

It wasn’t that long ago that the capabilities of smart phones and other digital gadgets seemed dizzying. Now, we hardly think twice about the comprehensive technical infrastructure that supports them, or about the wireless, portable world of personalized information and entertainment that is forever at our fingertips. What if we were to apply a similar model to rethink today’s diagnostic, therapeutic and drug delivery technologies? The potential for dramatic improvement in the accessibility and cost of medical care cannot be overstated – nor can the urgency of that need. This issue of Resolve focuses on Lehigh’s research and innovation in biotechnology and our commitment to an area where engineering, life science, medical science and healthcare intersect. Our goal is to leverage our core strengths in engineering through partnerships, innovative programs and unique facilities that will propel us into this field’s intellectual center.
