We are pioneering a new approach to healing damaged tissues using DNA nanotechnology, which we call TrAPs: Traction Force-Activated Payloads. This bioinspired approach uses the ability of cells to pull on materials to activate therapeutic proteins, and forms part of our approach to creating dynamic biomaterials. Interested in learning more? Check out our publication describing the TrAP platform!
