Researchers have developed a biocompatible material that can be 3D-printed into any shape and pre-programmed with reversible shape memory. The research could help the broader effort of reducing waste in the fashion industry, one of the biggest polluters on the planet.
A team of researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have harnessed the domino effect to design deployable systems that expand quickly with a small push and are stable and locked into place after deployment.
Harvard University researchers have bioengineered a three-dimensional model of a human left heart ventricle that could be used to study diseases, test drugs and develop patient-specific treatments for heart conditions such as arrhythmia.
A team of researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (Seas) has developed a soft robot that uses those same principles of locomotion to crawl without any rigid components. The soft robotic scales are made using kirigami — an ancient Japanese paper craft that relies on cuts, rather than origami folds, to change the properties of a material.
To help catalyze the development of meaningful therapies, Harvard Medical School is launching a new program aimed at educating pharma and biotech leaders on the latest advances in genetics and how to optimize them for drug discovery and other therapeutic innovations.
