Hand Recovery from the Comfort of Home

Physical rehabilitation for motor impairment post-stroke involves high repetition of movement in order to retrain the brain on how to move the hand. Access to conventional rehabilitation therapy is limited when there are travel and financial burdens…

Mechanically-induced regeneration

Skeletal muscle and satellite cells are sensitive to biophysical and microenvironmental cues, and there is evidence that physical manipulation of damaged muscle may promote recovery. David Mooney’s lab has used biphasic ferrogel scaffolds to create…

Polymeric material for dentin restoration

David Mooney’s lab has demonstrated the use of triacrylates TMPTA and PETA as tools for the repair of dental tissues. They found that dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) adhered to these triacrylate polymers, which had been cured by visible light, and…

Tough hydrogel-based tissue adhesives

Existing adhesives are currently insufficient to bind to biological tissues, because they cannot bind strongly to wet or dynamic surfaces. David Mooney’s lab has used a bio-inspired design to create a new tough adhesive (TA) that consists of two…

Mutated IdsD proteins for treatment of Proteus mirabilis infections

Proteus mirabilis is part of the normal flora of the human gastrointestinal tract. It can also be found free living in water and soil. When this organism, however, enters the urinary tract, wounds, or the lungs it can become pathogenic. It commonly…

Band-gap tunable elastic optical multilayer fibers

Soft photonic fibers that reflect light in the visible spectrum via microscopic multilayer arrangements. The technology is inspired by photonic structures encountered in nature that reflect light to produce vivid and brilliant colors. Key aspects of…

Genomic Analysis Tool Box

Cancer genomes frequently harbor high mutation rates, complex structural variations, and are characterized by genome instability. Detailed understanding of these characteristics of the cancer genome is necessary for pinpointing the cause of tumor…
