Engineering’s Anirban Sen Gupta discusses his new research to mimic functions of real blood

Cleveland plays a big role in a life-saving, ‘world-first’ medical innovation: artificial blood
WJW-FOX 8: Anirban Sen Gupta, the Leonard Case Jr. Professor of Engineering at Case School of Engineering, discussed his new research that seeks components that mimic the functions of real blood into something that can be freeze-dried and easily stored as powder then reconstituted on demand using saline. “That’s why this is so exciting—this could be the culmination of a century of efforts by human beings to create a substitute for whole blood,” he said.
