Ruberti Awarded Patent
MIE Associate Professor Jeff Ruberti was awarded a patent for his methods in creating “Collagen Fibrillar Construction”.
Dr. Ruberti is the director of the EMERL. He has extensive industry experience having worked on helicopters at Sikorsky Aircraft, the International Space Station life support system at Hamilton Sunstrand and on polymeric systems at Cambridge Polymer Group. The combination of this work experience and his immersion in academic study have provided the synergy that drives the research of the EMERL. The basic science focus of the EMERL is the study of the kinetics of collagen assembly and degradation at the nano (monomer), micro (fibrillar) and tissue scale.
