Christoph Schmidt: Using Physics to Understand Biology

Monday, December 11, 2017

Christoph Schmidt wants to understand the physics of living materials such as cells, tissues, and organs. How does a cell generate forces and move, or sense its own size and shape? How does an animal sense its own motions? In Schmidt’s mind these questions are crying out for attention from... read more about Christoph Schmidt: Using Physics to Understand Biology »

3-D-Printable Implants May Ease Damaged Knees

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

A cartilage-mimicking material created by researchers at Duke University may one day allow surgeons to 3-D print replacement knee parts that are custom-shaped to each patient’s anatomy. The hydrogel-based material the researchers developed is the first to match human cartilage in strength and... read more about 3-D-Printable Implants May Ease Damaged Knees »
