A device developed by graduate student Lin Zhao, Professor Evelyn Wang, and Professor Gang Chen, could provide pressurized steam to run autoclaves without the need for electricity in off-grid areas.
Recent MIT graduate Erin Looney, who received her PhD in mechanical engineering, reflects on the surprising benefits of defending her doctoral thesis virtually.
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.
