Mechanically instructive biomaterials: a synergy of mechanics, materials and biology

New Article in Science Translational Medicine: Application of Mechanical Metamaterials in Medicine

Abstract: We hypothesized that ingested warm fluids could act as triggers for biomedical devices. We investigated heat dissipation throughout the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract by administering warm (55°C) water to pigs and identified two zones in which thermal actuation could be applied: esophageal (actuation through warm water ingestion) and extra-esophageal (protected from ingestion of warm liquids and actuatable by endoscopically administered warm fluids).

Call for Abstract Submission to 12th WCCM: Nanomaterials in Biological Systems

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to submit your one-page abstract to our Mini-Symposium (MS613) "Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling of Nanomaterials in Biological Systems" for

12th World Congress on Computational Mechanics – WCCM 2016

Date & Location:

Seoul, Korea, 24 – 29 July 2016

Open Postdoctoral Position at Carnegie Mellon University (USA)

We are currently looking for a top candidate to join the System Level Design group at CMU (www.ece.cmu.edu/~sld/), as a Postdoctoral Associate, starting Spring 2013. Main responsibilities involve work on modeling and control of stochastic micro-robotic swarms targeting biological applications.
