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.

3D Printing with Silk Protein

Thursday, 16 March 2017 at 12:00

Add to Calendar ▼SELECTBIOenquiries@selectbiosciences.com

We continue to develop, study and apply silk protein-based inks useful for 3D printing requirements.  The features of these inks center around their cyto-compatible features, the versatility in control of mechanical properties, the avoidance of chemical or photochemical crosslinking requirements and the FDA-approved nature of the protein for some biomedical applications.   We focus on exploiting the natural self-assembly of silk chains in aqueous systems into crystals via physical interactions, providing post printing stabilization.  These features support a range of studies related to soft and hard tissue scaffolds, cell delivery and many related themes.
