David L. Kaplan's Biography

David L. Kaplan, Stern Family Endowed Professor of Engineering, Professor & Chair -- Dept of Biomedical Engineering, Tufts University

David Kaplan holds an Endowed Chair, the Stern Family Professor of Engineering, at Tufts University. He is Professor & Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and also holds faculty appointments in the School of Medicine, the School of Dental Medicine, Department of Chemistry and the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. His research focus is on biopolymer engineering to understand structure-function relationships, with emphasis on studies related to self-assembly, biomaterials engineering and functional tissue engineering/regenerative medicine. He has published over 600 peer reviewed papers and edited eight books. He directs the NIH P41 Tissue Engineering Resource Center (TERC) that involves Tufts University and Columbia University. He serves of the editorial boards of numerous journals and is Associate Editor for the ACS journal Biomacromolecules. He has received a number of awards for teaching, was Elected Fellow American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and received the Columbus Discovery Medal and Society for Biomaterials Clemson Award for contributions to the literature.

We continue to develop, study and apply silk protein-based inks useful for 3D printing.  The features of these inks involve all aqueous and ambient processing, cyto-compatible features, versatility in control of mechanical properties, avoidance of chemical or photochemical crosslinking requirements, and the FDA-approved nature of the protein.   hese features support a range of studies related to biomaterials and tissue engineering, as well as cell delivery and related themes.  Our most recent advances in building complex 3D structures using silk-based approaches will be reviewed, including new processing methods, underwater silk printing inks, and new modes to functionalize biomaterials with silk ink jet printing for biomaterials.
