BioE Professor Jeffrey Ruberti was awarded a patent for designing a “Mechanochemical collagen assembly.”

Abstract Source: USPTO

Methods and devices are described for using a controlled extensional strain to organize prefibrillar collagen and/or elastin solutions into an organized array of fibrils. The organized array of collagen fibrils produced by the disclosed methods and devices can be used for tissue engineering applications.
