  • 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.
  • Multiphoton microscopy images demonstrating the variable composition and organization of the heart matrix
    Tufts engineers have developed new, non-destructive techniques to evaluate tissue healing following a heart attack.
  • Process could pave way for engineering innervated tissues such as skin, cornea.
  • Tufts engineers have developed threads that, when sutured into tissue, collect and wirelessly transmit diagnostic data.
