A breakthrough device that heals organs with a single touch.

Learn about this groundbreaking discovery from Biomedical Engineering Assistant Professor and Ohio State alum Daniel Gallego-Perez (BME ’11), then get a behind-the-scenes look at Fuse by Cardinal Health, an innovation lab that connects technology with healthcare to build the future of health and wellness.
