...natural roughness of chemically modified surfaces of medical devices," said Aizenberg, who leads the Wyss Institute's Adaptive Materials platform. "This is yet another incarnation of the highly customisable SLIPS platform that can be designed to create slippery, non–adhesive surfaces on any material."
"This really could only happen in a place like the Wyss Institute," Ingber said. "The magic happened when physicians and scientists in my group started brainstorming with the SLIPS engineering team who are experts in super-repellency. What emerged could become a new paradigm for implantable medical devices, extracorporeal circuits, and more."
"But scaling that up is difficult. You quickly run outout of time and people," Holland said. "The toolkit is designed to capture the expertise and make it easily accessible to students."
"In this case, when we put the cells in the right places, we create cellular organization quite naturally" Leng said
