This approach to the study of disease, referred to as "materiomics" by the lead researcher on the project, Professor Markus Buehler of MIT's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, could prove valuable in the study of other diseases - particularly collagen - and other protein-based diseases - where a material's behavior and breakdown play a critical role.
Buehler first described the materiomics approach in an article appearing in the March 2009 issue of Nature Materials.
