Abstract

The NSF Engineering Research Center in Cellular Metamaterials (CELL-MET) plans to accomplish four goals with the cellular metamaterials it intends to build: fabricate responsive heart tissue containing muscle cells and blood vessels; understand and control the tissue using optical technologies; scale the process up to easily create multiple copies of the tissue; and personalize the product, so it can be tailored to individual patients.

The ‘Technology Foundation’ videos provide insight on the current progress of each Thrust Area (Nanomanufacturing, Nanomechanics, Optical Engineering, and Cellular Engineering) as presented by graduate students representing Boston University, the University of Michigan, and Florida International University.

In this presentation, BU graduate student Rachael Jayne explains her work on Nanomechanics in Alice White’s lab.
