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.

Danielle Cote, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, and Kyle Tsaknopoulos, a postdoctoral fellow at WPI, discuss their $25 million award to advance a cold spray 3D printing technique that could be used to repair military vehicles and equipment. Cote noted that they alter the chemical composition of spray powders, where “a small adjustment in composition can make a big difference.”
