MIT engineers have developed a procedure to 3D print a soft and flexible replica of a patients heart that they can then control its action to mimic that patient's blood-pumping ability. The soft-robotic models could help clinicians zero in on the best implant for an individual. (Learn more: https://news.mit.edu/2023/custom-3d-printed-heart-replicas-patient-specific-0222)

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an independent, coeducational, privately endowed university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our mission is to advance knowledge; to educate students in science, engineering, technology, humanities and social sciences; and to tackle the most pressing problems facing the world today. We are a community of hands-on problem-solvers in love with fundamental science and eager to make the world a better place.

The MIT YouTube channel features videos about all types of MIT research, including the robot cheetah, LIGO, gravitational waves, mathematics, and bombardier beetles, as well as videos on origami, time capsules, and other aspects of life and culture on the MIT campus. Our goal is to open the doors of MIT and bring the Institute to the world through video.
