A team of MIT researchers has developed a new way to generate nanofibers, using hardware built through standard chip-manufacturing processes.
Prized Science highlights the work of Robert Langer, whose influential research on tissue engineering and controlled drug release earned him the Priestley Medal.
Gregory Rutledge, professor in the MIT Department of Chemical Engineering, discusses research on nanofibers.
Berkmen discusses her research with Professors Utkan Demirci and Ed Boyden in developing 3-D brain tissue constructs.
MIT researchers have now shown that implanted cells' therapeutic properties depend on their shape, which is determined by the type of scaffold on which they are grown.
Dr. Robert Langer of the MIT Department of Chemical EngineeringEngineering of Integrated Materials and Cell Based SystemsI will start by discussing how I - as a chemical engineer - initially got involved in the interface between biology and engineering, which would ...
