Tufts University

Profile
The vision of the Biomedical Engineering Department at Tufts University is to promote integrative research, education, and entrepreneurship at the forefront of biomedical science and engineering. Tufts is home to the NIH P41 Tissue Engineering Resource Center. The research focus varies in disciplines from biomaterials processing to medical optics. The biomedical engineering department is passionate about progressive tissue engineering strategies and funds a laboratory subgroup focused on 3D bioprinting and rapid prototyping with biomaterials. This group has active and longstanding clinical collaborations exploring the potential of 3D printed biomaterial products in surgical reconstruction in vivo.

Ionic Materials

Ionic Materials (IM) is a US-based start-up developing a solid polymer electrolyte for Li-ion batteries. Founded in 2011 by Mike Zimmerman, serial entrepreneur and professor at Tufts University, in 2018 the company raised $65M in a Series C funding round that included Hyundai, Renault-Nissan, A123 Systems, Total, and Hitachi Chemical, among other investors.

Smart bandages monitor and tailor treatment for chronic wounds

A team of engineers has developed a prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds and deliver appropriate drug treatments to improve the chances of healing. While the lab-tested bandages remain to be assessed in a clinical context, the research is aimed at transforming bandaging from a traditionally passive treatment into a more active paradigm to address a persistent and difficult medical challenge.

Teaching robots to sort out their issues

Robots can help do a lot of things - assemble cars, search for explosives, cook a meal or aid in surgery. But one thing they can't do is tell you how they're doing - yet.

Teaching robots manners

Advances in artificial intelligence are making virtual and robotic assistants increasingly capable in performing complex tasks. For these "smart" machines to be considered safe and trustworthy collaborators with human partners, however, robots must be able to quickly assess a given situation and apply human social norms.

Stretchy optical fibers for implanting in the body

Researchers have developed a biocompatible and highly stretchable optical fiber made from hydrogel — an elastic, rubbery material composed mostly of water. The fiber, which is as bendable as a rope of licorice, may one day be implanted in the body to deliver therapeutic pulses of light or light up at the first sign of disease.

Smart sensors can be sutured into tissue

For the first time, researchers have integrated nano-scale sensors, electronics and microfluidics into threads - ranging from simple cotton to sophisticated synthetics - that can be sutured through multiple layers of tissue to gather diagnostic data wirelessly in real time.
