Some of the papers have definitely led to improvements in Tor (like refinements in how guard nodes are selected, or in other aspects of path selection) but I think there are also attacks from the research community that Tor hasn't found practical ways to mitigate yet.

Some mitigations may need to come from outside of Tor -- things that make the Internet as a whole more stable, harder to eavesdrop on, and harder to selectively disrupt.
