Protein Gels Being Devised to Simulate Human Functions | Science and Enterprise

New York University’s engineering school is developing a new type of protein-based gel materials that respond to and replicate natural biochemical processes. The research team is investigating ways of making hydrogels from engineered proteins derived from E. coli bacteria that can then be refined into substances imitating natural processes to help heal wounds, detect changes in vital signs, or deliver drugs.
