Icon The Cover: APL’s biomedical engineering projects have often produced technologies that offer capability for understanding complex causes of disease and their impact on humans. The cover illustrates APL’s work in applied research, hardware and software development, and modeling and simulation. APL’s biomedical technology is shown delivering quality care to an aging population while enabing Laboratory sponsors to perform their missions. (Cover design by Kenneth R. Moscati.)
