Metin Sitti's Micro-Robotic Grippers Could Eventually Assemble Devices Inside the Human Body

Professor Metin Sitti and Eric Diller published a high-impact paper on April 14, 2014 in Advanced Functional Materials on 3D assembly using magnetic micro-robotic grippers.

With implications for use as injectable 'buider bots' that could assemble devices while inside the bloodstream, this advance may lead to new methods of treating blood clots, among other medical conditions.

Sitti is the Director of the NanoRobotics Lab at CMU, and CEO and Founder of NanoGriptech.
