Ellen Roche combines robotics, biologics to design cardiac devices to create a biohybrid robotic heart designed for high-fidelity testing of mitral valve repair strategies.
MIT engineers led by Associate Professor Xuanhe Zhao have designed a double-sided tape that can seal tissues in just five seconds. The tape could eventually replace surgical sutures, which don’t work well in all tissues and can cause complications in some patients.
Associate Professor Sangbae Kim describes his cutting-edge research in the area of biomimetics, the study of biological systems as models for the design and engineering of robots.
