The constructs, termed ‘medusoids’, were designed with computer simulations and experiments to match key determinants of jellyfish propulsion and feeding. Enter the era of synthetic physiology! Why not build a jellyfish from neonatal rat heart cells and some plastic? This is exactly what was accomplished in this study. jellyfish. This engineered jellyfish displays behavior such as propulsion and swimming when A tissue engineered jellyfish with biomimetic propulsion .

The protein pattern serves as a road map for growth and organization of dissociated rat tissue—individual heart muscle cells that retain the ability to contract—into a coherent swimming muscle.

The constructs, termed ‘medusoids’, were designed with computer simulations and experiments to match key determinants of jellyfish propulsion and feeding performance by quantitatively mimicking structural design, stroke kinematics and animal-fluid interactions. FeinbergSean P. Then, researchers could think about systems that could live in the human body for years at a time without having to worry about batteries because the system would be able to fend for itself.
