The combination of a 2Photon 3D-printer with an innovative hydrogel-based bioink allows the direct printing of 3D structures containing living cells at both the meso- and microscale.
Scientists have developed and tested a wearable biofuel cell array that generates electric power from the lactate in the wearer's sweat, opening doors to electronic health monitoring powered by bodily fluids.
Researchers have created polymers that replicate the structure of mucins, the molecules that give mucus its unique antimicrobial properties.
Scientists have designed a portable 3D imaging device which will improve the treatment and diagnosis of cancer.
Researchers have created life forms that self-assemble a body from single cells and do not require muscle cells to move. They're faster, live longer, and can now record information.
Researchers have demonstrated MRI compatibility in their soft electrode arrays – a crucial step in translation to the clinic.
Researchers have developed a way to harvest energy from radio waves to power wearable devices.
Researchers have fabricated 3D scaffold implants containing antibiotics at high temperatures. These scaffolds support bone regeneration and manage the bone infections.
Nanoengineers have developed a "wearable microgrid" that harvests and stores energy from the human body to power small electronics.
Researchers have developed an injectable hydrogel that could help repair and prevent further damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack.
New hydrogel-based materials that can change shape in response to psychological stimuli, such as water, could be the next generation of materials used to bioengineer tissues and organs.
