Implantable Silk Metamaterials Could Advance Biomedicine, Biosensing, Tufts University and Boston University Reveal

E Science News -- Researchers at the Tufts University School of Engineering and Boston University have fabricated and characterized the first large area metamaterial structures patterned on implantable, bio-compatible silk substrates. The research, reported online July 21, 2010, in the journal Advanced Materials, provides a promising path towards the development of a new class of metamaterial-inspired implantable biosensors and biodetectors.
