  • Tufts campus in the fall.
    Tufts School of Engineering welcomes eight new faculty members this fall.
  • Surgeons in an operating room
    A team of Tufts researchers received the Harting Award for the best paper published in Experimental Techniques in 2016.
  • Aerial view of Tufts campus
    A number of engineering faculty and staff received seed grants through the Tufts Innovates and Tufts Collaborates programs. Awarded by the Provost's Office, the grants spark innovative ideas and interdisciplinary research.
  • Ph.D. candidate Dimitra Pouli poses with a photo of her research.
    A number of Engineering students, alumni, and faculty were recognized at the 2017 Tufts Graduate Awards. Dimitra Pouli, pictured with her winning submission to the Graduate Student Photo Contest, received the Engineering Award for Outstanding Academic Scholarship.
  • Team Tarsier poses with the check for their winning pitch.
    Engineering students and faculty delivered winning pitches at the 2017 $100k New Ventures Competition, hosted by Tufts Gordon Institute.
  • Assistant Professors Iryna Zenyuk, Xiaocheng Jiang, and Rob Viesca

    Assistant Professors Iryna Zenyuk, Xiaocheng Jiang, and Robert C. Viesca received CAREER Awards, the National Science Foundation's most prestigious award in support of junior faculty.

  • Web of silk nano fibers  able to withstand a load 4,000 times its own weight.
    Biomedical engineers have developed a new bioinspired technique that transforms silk protein into complex materials that are easily programmable at the nano-, micro-, and macro-scales, as well as being ultralight and robust. 
  • Associate Professor Lauren Black and postdoctoral scholar Whitney Stoppel at work in the Black Lab.

    Associate Professor Lauren Black and collaborators are developing a novel tissue graft which could give new hope to pediatric heart patients.

  • A silk fibroin pin changes color from blue to red
    Biomedical engineers have created materials with embedded, pre-designed functions. The process enables the creation of mechanical components with functionality, such as surgical pins that change color with strain.
  • Imaging mitochondrial dynamics in human skin for noninvasive cancer detection
    Tufts engineers help develop a new technique that could enhance standard criteria for early cancer diagnosis.
