Microelectronically Stimulating and Actuating Nanofibers for Muscle Replacement and Regeneration

nsf_101x102.jpg

Prof. Laleh Najafizadeh, in collaboration with Joseph Freeman of biomedical engineering just received a 3 year award from the NSF for the project entitled, "Microelectronically Stimulating and Actuating Nanofibers for Muscle Replacement and Regeneration". In this project Professors Freeman and Najafizadeh will design and fabricate implantable, degradable devices to functionally replace muscle and regenerate new muscle tissue.
