Professor Franck Vernerey and ATLAS Assistant Professor Carson Bruns received $477,000 from the National Science Foundation to begin research on a new kind of biocompatible actuator that contracts and relaxes in only one dimension, like muscles.
ATLAS Assistant Professor Carson Bruns discusses how nanotechnology can give tattoos biomedical applications. He discusses recently-published research on tattoos that alert an individual when their skin needs protection by employing ink that is only visible when exposed to UV light.
At a time when the field of human-computer interaction is becoming more important than ever, ATLAS researchers are making substantial contributions, contributing nine papers and two workshops to CHI '20.
In this short video, Fiona Bell, ATLAS CTD student and member of the Living Matter Lab, shares a class project she completed for Design Foundations where she made a variety of bioplastics for a range of different applications.
