Video/AnimationRomu: A Robot for Environmental ProtectionResearchers at the Wyss Institute have developed a robot designed to drive interlocking sheet piles into the ground to help stabilize soil. Teams of such robots could help combat erosion, restore damaged landscapes, and facilitate sustainable land management in a variety of settings. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard
Video/AnimationLe Lab Presents: Designing Future Therapeutics with Samir MitragotriWyss Core Faculty member Samir Mitragotri, Ph.D. presented a talk at Le Laboratoire Cambridge on February 13th, 2019, titled Designing Future Therapeutics. Effective delivery of therapeutics is a major problem in today’s healthcare. At a fundamental level, the challenge of therapeutic delivery reflects the fact that the drug distribution in the body is limited by body’s...
Video/AnimationLe Lab Presents: Measuring and Mimicking Biology with David WaltWyss Core Faculty member David Walt, Ph.D. presented a talk at Le Laboratoire Cambridge on January 23rd 2019, titled Measuring and Mimicking Biology: Eyes, Noses, Genes and Proteins. Walt and his team have taken inspiration from both the visual and olfactory systems to design sensor arrays that are inspired by the properties of the natural systems. Optical fiber...
Video/AnimationLiquid-Infused Tympanostomy TubesResearchers at the Wyss Institute have developed next-generation tympanostomy tubes with an innovative material design that significantly reduces biofouling, implant size, need for revision surgeries, and promotes drug delivery into the middle ear.
