EDEN2020 paper gains traction

March 22, 2021

The paper is set as journal feature and highlight article on Imperial News

EDEN2020 recent paper published in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, has been selected as a feature article in the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING (TBME) April Issue. Titled “Infusion Mechanisms in Brain White Matter and Their Dependence on Microstructure: An Experimental Study of Hydraulic Permeability”, the paper details the experimental study carried out by EDEN2020 partners in which they proved that the direction in which a needle penetrates the brain, impacts brain fluid uptake.

Lead author Dr Asad Jamal, of Imperial’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, said: “Our results confirm that directionality is important when infusing drugs into the brain, which in turn supports the use of a steerable needle for drug delivery. Until now, brain injections were thought to uniformly distribute drugs in all directions. Our work challenges this and finds that needle direction could in fact be important in effective treatment.”
