Carol Livermore Associate Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering firstname.lastname@example.org 617.373.4922 Expertise assembly and self-assembly techniques and applications in micro and nanoscale systems, energy harvesting, energy storage, power MEMS, tissue engineering Carol Livermore in the Press Scientific American 3-D printing modification yields adorable micro-tools Microfabrica also makes minuscule surgical instruments, including biopsy forceps less than one millimeter in diameter and a tissue scaffold with linkages that allow it to expand with cell growth. Carol Livermore, a mechanical and industrial engineering professor at Northeastern University, calls Microfabrica’s capabilities impressive. “I am not aware of any kind of high-end 3-D printing […] Boston Magazine Researchers are using origami to study human tissue engineering For those who are suffering from disease or traumatic injuries, receiving an organ transplant can be the difference between life and death. But the U.S. Department of Health and Human Servicesreports that each year more than 7,600 lose their lives while waiting for the surgery. “It’s a big problem. The supply of organs is nowhere near as […] In The Future, You May Get An Origami Liver Transplant The ancient Japanese art of origami is useful for making more than just pretty papercranes and owls. In the future, the practice may be used to produce new human organs–an alternative to the 3-D printed organs that scientists are working on today. Carol Livermore, a professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at Northeastern University, has long studied microfabrication […] Motherboard Researchers Want to Make Origami-Inspired Organs If the best new innovations are often twists on older ideas, it shouldn’t be surprising that one of the most inventive techniques being explored in the burgeoning field of tissue engineering is based on the ancient art of paper folding. Backed by a $2 million National Science Foundation grant, Carol Livermore, an associate professor of mechanical and industrial engineering […] Carol Livermore for Northeastern Global News How one Northeastern spinoff is using origami to speed up drug development How one Northeastern spinoff is using origami to speed up drug development To engineering professor Carol Livermore, origami is more than just beautiful art—it’s a platform to create life-saving innovations. Art’s place in the science world Art’s place in the science world In this guest post for iNSolution, learn more about how associate professor Carol Livermore is incorporating origami into her science research—specifically, as it relates to tissue engineering. Origami unfolds a new tissue engineering strategy Origami unfolds a new tissue engineering strategy The newest application for the centuries-old art of Japanese paper folding is tissue engineering, according to associate professor of mechanical and industrial engineering Carol Livermore.
