Discovery and Innovation with Purpose

Biomedical engineer Marsha Rolle has spent more than a decade developing a method for building engineered blood vessels. With support from the NIH, she is using her innovative methods to create diseased blood vessels, which could serve as better models for testing new medications and help speed the development of better treatments for cardiac and vascular conditions.

From cutting-edge work in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to advances in robotics and cybersecurity to a closer look at ecosystems, explore WPI research in and out of the lab. View more research videos.

From the WPI Journal

Researchers and scholars at WPI view the changing climate through many lenses. Here they share what they see when they study the changing world with the benefit of their distinctive expertise and unique viewpoints. Their voices echo WPI’s long heritage of not simply acknowledging problems, but crafting practical solutions. For in the end, these voices may be chilled by today’s harsh reality, but they are also warmed by the prospect of a better world we can build together.

WPI In the News

Boston 25 reported on WPI researchers developing a sensor the size of a Band-Aid to measure a baby’s blood oxygen levels, a vital indication of the lungs’ effectiveness and whether the baby’s tissue is receiving adequate oxygen supply. This wearable device will be flexible and stretchable, wireless, inexpensive, and mobile - possibly allowing the child to leave the hospital and be monitored remotely.

The Register reported on Berk Sunar, professor of electrical and computer engineering and leader of  the Vernam Lab,  and Daniel Moghimi, a PhD candidate in the electrical and computer engineering department, leading an international team of researchers that discovered serious security vulnerabilities in computer chips made by Intel Corp. and STMicroelectronics. The flaws affect billions of laptop, server, tablet, and desktop users around the world. The proof-of-concept attack is dubbed TPM-Fail.
