To assist in the battle against COVID-19, a number of University research projects in progress since early spring seek to develop new technology molded to the needs of medical personnel, COVID-19 patients and testing sites.

A team of University researchers designed a material that can be molded into structures and adapted to reshape itself. They used a light-directed 3D printer to create the dynamic hydrogel.

University researchers have brought the childlike appeal of LEGO blocks to the chemistry lab — a newly invented material can stick to itself, be molded to form a structure and, when needed, can adapt to reshape itself, just like a set of LEGOs built into various shapes.

In a new study, researchers analyzed alginate graphene oxide and assessed its potential for use in organ 3D printing. They further suggested its relevance to cancer immunotherapies, drug delivery and tissue engineering.
