Take a trip down the microworld as roboticists Paul McEuen and Marc Miskin explain how they design and mass-produce microrobots the size of a single cell, powered by atomically thin legs -- and show how these machines could one day be "piloted" to battle crop diseases or study your brain at the level of individual neurons.

NYU-MRSEC investigators have worked alongside BioBus scientists to develop new K-12 materials science-related curricula since 2009. This collaboration brought exciting and educational engineering projects to over 1,000 NYC students in 2019-2020.

MRSEC investigators rediscovered DFDT and found that amorphous and crystalline forms of DFDT and a mono-fluorinated chiral congener, MFDT were more active against Anopheles and Aedes mosquitoes, the former the disease vector for malaria and the latter for Zika, yellow fever, dengue, and chikungunya.
