    Researchers at Tufts have created a novel 3D brain tissue system that better mimics the tumor environment in patients, allowing detailed study of tumor biology.
  • Faculty in the Laboratory for Living Devices invite the public to L²D Day on November 7 in the SEC
    Researchers at Tufts’ Laboratory for Living Devices link materials like silk and paper with technology, medicine, and diagnostics.
  • Professor Sergio Fantini and members of the DOIT Lab
    Professor Sergio Fantini and the Diffuse Optical Imaging of Tissue Lab find new ways to non-invasively study biological tissue at greater depths.
  • Bovine skeletal muscle cells grown in the presence of myoglobin or hemoglobin
    Cultured meat could reduce resources required in meat production, with a smaller environmental footprint relative to animal farming.
  • Passing a voltage across a heating element connected to the silk bilayer expands the material to smooth out any patterns (left). Cutting off voltage allows material to cool and the high resolution wrinkle pattern appears (right)
    Scientists engineer on-demand high resolution wrinkling for reversible printing and thermal regulation.
  • Inset shows a donut-shaped 3D silk scaffold (represented as schematic in background) treated with ECM and seeded with glioblastoma cells.
    Researchers find the use of brain-like extracellular matrix allows cell growth and treatment to more closely replicate physiological response.
  • close-up of silk fibers
    Fiorenzo Omenetto, Dean of Research and Frank C. Doble Professor, discusses the potential of silk to shape future technologies in Scientific American.
