Quotes

"The goal of the toolkit is to advance the field of soft robotics by allowing designers and researchers to build upon each other's work" said Conor Walsh, an assistant professorprofessor of mechanical and biomedical engineering at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences...
..."We are basically in that era for these new quantum materials," he says. "This is an exciting time to think about establishing the basic, fundamental properties. In the coming decade or so, this could really mature into a very exciting device platform."
"Most biofilm-related research today focuses on how to get rid of biofilms, but we demonstrate here that we can engineer these super tough natural materials to perform specific functions -- so we may want them around in specific quantities and for specific applications" said Wyss Institute Core FacultyFaculty member Neel Joshi, Ph D , the study's senior author...
"Until recently there was not enough cooperation between synthetic biologists and biomaterials researchers to exploit the synthetic potential of biofilms this way. We are trying to bridge that gap" Joshi said
