Abstract A new type of hydrogel combining the highly elastic soft phase of Rec1-resilin and the mechanically strong hard phase Bombyx mori Silk fibroin has been reported using a rapid photo-crosslinking method. The improved elasticity and strength through the use of a resilin-based material and silk fibroin has been shown for the first time.
