USD news release on autonomous and tunable biomaterials project
Gregor Leech, junior undergraduate and biophysics major, has been working on autonomous and tunable biomaterials project since 2020. The goal of his research is to replicate the cytoskeletons in order to create autonomous materials that don’t need human input to move, morph and do work. You can access the published research: “Myosin-driven actin-microtubule networks exhibit self-organized contractile dynamics” in Science Advances, here.
