The Unjamming Transition (UJT) is Fundamental to Wound Healing, Embryonic Development, and Cancer Invasion

Dr. Jeffrey Fredberg's laboratory investigates physical processes expressed by the eukaryotic cell, such as its deformability, contractility, malleability, and motility. His team turned attention more recently from the single cell in isolation to the cellular collective as it might pertain, for example, to disruption of the bronchial epithelial layer in asthma or tumor invasion in breast cancer.

Innovative Product Design in a Regulated Market

As scientists and engineers, it is tempting to think that the key to making a successful product is just a great idea. In reality, that is only one small step on the way to a successful product. This is particularly true in regulated industries like medical devices where even great products can fail to see the light of day because a disciplined design process was not followed AND documented. Fixing an undisciplined development process can be prohibitively expensive and cause unacceptably long delays in getting a product to market.
