Gastrointestinal Bioelectromagnetism

L. Alan Bradshaw

Professor Bradshaw maintains an active research collaboration at Vanderbilt University working on the electric and magnetic signatures of slow waves in the stomach and small bowel. Lipscomb students have been key contributors to these projects. Using a Superconducting QUantum Interference Device (SQUID) magnetometer, they have discovered differences in the propagation of electrical activity in the stomach associated with functional gastric disorders like gastroparesis.

Electric Field Effects on Cancer Cells

Spring 2018 Biomedical Physics Research Seminar

Students in Lipscomb's Biomedical Physics Research Seminar designed and completed a challenging project investigating the effects of alternating electric fields on breast cancer cells. Students in the course were able to demonstrate that 100 kHz AEFs decreased proliferation of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells with 24 exposure of 1-3 mV/cm fields.
