We are currently developing novel DNA editing technologies to broaden the scope of genome engineering. Our strategy is based on identifyi...
There are many mysteries of human biology. Among those perhaps least considered, what do our bodies sound like?This was the question on t...
Today’s health sensors (which monitor breathing, heartbeats, steps, etc.) require their users to wear them on their bodies. In contrast, ...
Residents are invited to weigh in on a plan to release genetically-modified mice on Nantucket to combat tick-borne diseases

We collaborated with NIAS (National Institute of Agricultural Science) to genetically engineer silkworms to develop new kinds of silk for...
In the United States, there are an estimated 1.7 million people living with amputation, with that number expected to double by 2050. Comp...
How we can understand human behavior (rationality, semi-rationality, bounded rationality, and just plain irrationality) in day-to-day behaviors, and in particular in electronic environments.
How to engineer and disseminate powerful, low-cost design and fabrication technologies at a grassroots level.
How to redefine and expand the conceptual framework and language of learning by creating new technologies and spheres of practice.

How to bring the programmability of the digital world to the physical world.
How to build intelligent music systems out of interacting audio-processing agents.
How to detect the activity of biological molecules with micro- and nanofabricated devices.
How we can construct information technology and intelligence from the fundamental building blocks of physical media: atoms and molecules.
Can a person look at a portable display, click on a few buttons, and recover his or her refractive condition? Our optometry solution comb...
We have developed a set of "optogenetic" reagents: fully genetically encoded reagents that, when targeted to specifi...
We introduce a novel interactive method to assess cataracts in the human eye by crafting an optical solution that measures the perceptual...
How will gene drive systems evolve once released into the wild? Can they be reliably overwritten and blocked by immunizing reversal drive...
