Biomedical engineering’s Erin Lavik leads development of blood-clotting nanoparticles

These nanoparticles could clot your blood faster—and save your life
Popular MechanicsErin Lavik, associate professor of biomedical engineering, led an investigation on the role bleeding plays in injuries to the nervous system. Her team of researchers developed blood-clotting nanoparticles that can be injected after an injury. “We were shocked to learn that there were no treatments to stop internal bleeding,” she said.
