About Bioengineering Today

Bioengineering Today is an editorially independent news service of AIP Publishing, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics (AIP). As a not-for-profit federation of physical societies, the mission of the American Institute of Physics is to advance, promote and serve the physical sciences for the benefit of humanity.

The mission of Bioengineering Today is to cover modern, cutting-edge biomedical discoveries with an eye toward illuminating paths to that brighter future. Aimed at professional and enthusiastic general audiences, this web magazine offers news and information related to basic biomedical research, new devices, new imaging technologies, engineering and disease detection, prevention and treatment.

For professional audiences, we offer news briefs and longer-form reporting on interdisciplinary developments in many fields. For general audiences, we offer news, analysis and useful information that is more easily digested than straight research literature.

Comment on Editorial Independence

Editorial staff and the contributing freelancers who write for Bioengineering Today are professional writers and journalists. We strive to adhere to the highest journalistic standards. This starts with editorial independence. We work hard to produce high-quality, insightful and accurate science news that is free of outside influence. Decision-making authority about how and whether to cover particular stories resides solely with the editorial team, and we do not have a mandate to cover any specific journal, meeting or scientific organization.

Stories are written and edited by Bioengineering Today staff and contributors alone and are not vetted or shared with any other parties at AIP Publishing or other outside organizations prior to publication, including primary sources. We do not share copy with people interviewed for stories prior to publication, even in the course of routine fact-checking. All final editorial decisions rest with the Bioengineering Today editorial staff alone.
