KAIST is the first and top science and technology university in Korea. In the wake of its 50th anniversary, KAIST is scaling up new research initiatives in order to become a ‘first mover.’ This is in line with its plan to pivot away from its previous role as a ‘fast follower,’ a role that led to Korea’s rapid industrialization.

Established in 1971 by the Korean government, KAIST was tasked with the very clear institutional mission to make innovations that would drive the country’s economic growth engine, especially in the fields of ICT and electronics. KAIST has fully achieved its institutional mission, creating a very successful educational model that is now being benchmarked by many other countries.

Turning 50 years old in 2021, its R&D strategy has shifted to focus on creating global value for the future. Among others, the Global Singularity Research Project aims to identify the most critical projects which will make the biggest difference in people’s lives.

This innovative research project selects the two most creative and future-oriented research projects every year. Young researchers’ projects on new materials, neuro-rehabilitation, and brain function redesign selected as this research program will surely bring breakthroughs which will serve as game changers for the future.

Stretchable tissue samples make for faster analysis

A technique that temporally makes tissue samples both robust and stretchy will speed up studies that involve running multiple tests over extended times on the same tissue samples.

Some research projects require delicate tissues samples to be interrogated multiple times over several years. This is both time consuming and difficult to do without damaging the samples.

Now, a team that included researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has found a way to convert biological tissues into elastic hydrogels.

The stretchability of the treated tissues makes them more robust and easier to label them with fluorescent dyes. Furthermore, the change is reversible so that the tissues revert to their normal state.

The team demonstrated the technique by using to produce elasticized slabs of brain tissue. They anticipate that the team will accelerate the investigation of animal models and human samples.
