Tufts Professor Michael Levin is using artificial intelligence to generate cancer-like properties in tadpoles, which could someday be used to cure disease, control cell behavior, or regenerate tissue.
Tufts alumna Lynn Munsinger has illustrated nearly 100 children's books. Take a look at her recent work, "Dinosaurs in Disguise," which tells the story of a boy who believes the dinosaurs did not become extinct millions of years ago, but instead went into hiding.
For the first time, artificial intelligence has been used to generate a never-before-seen cancer phenotype. The findings provide new insight into the biophysics of cancer and raise broad implications for biomedicine.
Study by Tufts University, in collaboration with MIT scientists, reveals the molecular composition of firefly "nuptial gifts", offering the first peek into the content of these special packages and shedding new light on post-mating sexual selection. The findings were published Dec. 22, 2016, in Scientific Reports.

Before beginning their undergraduate studies on campus, students in the Tufts 1 + 4 program spend nine months doing service work in Brazil, Nicaragua or Spain. Come join us in Madrid as they share their adventures, challenges and moments of self-discovery. Tufts works with United Planet and AFAIJ to offer the Tufts 1+4 program in Spain. http://now.tufts.edu/multimedia http://activecitizen.tufts...
