Bioengineered Materials

By engineering the interface between living and non-living systems, researchers in this center develop biocompatible materials that can be used to fabricate innovative, highly functional implantable devices. These include sensors, therapeutics, prosthetics, and surgical aids, such as catheters and stents. Several technologies developed in the center have been targeted for commercialization.

The center makes use of research in a variety of fields, including materials, sensors, tissue engineering, nanoscience, and nanotechnology. As with other BEI centers, researchers in this center collaborate closely with clinicians and scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and other regional healthcare institutions.
