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 (Manomanufacturing, Nanomechanics, Imaging, and Cellular Engineering) as presented by graduate students representing Boston University, the University of Michigan, and Florida International University.
In this presentation, FIU graduate student Pranjal Nautiyal explains his work on Nanomechanics in Arvind Agarwal's Lab.
