January, 2018: A KIC research team comprised of co-Directors Paul McEuen & David Muller,  member Itai Cohen, and Postdoctoral Fellow Marc Miskin have built the ‘muscle’ for an electricity-conducting, environment-sensing, shape-changing machine the size of a human cell. Their work is outlined in “Graphene-based Bimorphs for Micron-sized, Autonomous Origami Machines,” published Jan. 2 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  See also the Cornell Chronicle
