  • 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.
  • SmartCan, the self-driving trash can
    Alumnus Andrew Murray and his company Rezzi have developed SmartCan, a self-driving trash can that takes itself out to the curb on garbage day.
  • 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.
  • Portrait of Neelakshi Hudda
    Researchers, including Research Assistant Professor Neelakshi Hudda of Civil and Environmental Engineering, find harmful air pollution in communities surrounding Boston Logan International Airport.
  • An image of blue and yellow cells.
    Researchers including Professor Irene Georgakoudi, Department of Biomedical Engineering, use laser microscopy technique to detect ovarian metastatic cancer.
  • A caterpillar
    Engineers at Tufts suggest that coupling trends in cultured meat and entomophagy (i. e., eating insects) could include future steaks composed of caterpillar tissue.
  • Valencia Koomson and Nana Kwakwa's hands on a on-invasive, wearable device to measure blood oxygenation in the brain
    Associate Professor Valencia Koomson is developing a first-of-its-kind wearable device to help doctors monitor patients’ tissue oxygenation without requiring access to a heavy power source.
  • Margaret Stevens in the lab
    Ph.D. student Margaret Stevens and two faculty members publish research from the Renewable Energy and Applied Photonics Lab at Tufts University.
