Bozhi Tian, a professor in the chemistry department at the University of Chicago, aims at creating an artificial tissue or organ to replace damaged tissue or organs in the human body. Monitoring tissue in real time is not an easy task, cause taking a cross section may kill it. Another option is optical examination of the issues and organs, though it works only in 2-D and the body is 3-D, and the information you get from a 2-D system cannot be applied to the human. Bozhi Tian in collaboration with Daniel Kohane in Robert Langer’s lab at MIT decided to build a tiny scaffold woven with nano wires onto which tissue cells were grown. This method has resulted in constructing brain tissue, cardiac tissue and blood vessels, all with embedded nano wire sensors. You can learn more about this innovation in technology at asme.org.
