The classical paradigm of tissue engineering involves the integrated use of human stem cells, biomaterial scaffolds (providing a structural and logistic template for tissue formation) and bioreactors (providing environmental control, dynamic sequences of molecular and physical signaling, and insights into the structure and function of the forming tissues). This “biomimetic” approach results in an increasingly successful representation of the environmental milieu of tissue development, regeneration and disease. Living human tissues are now being engineered from various types of human stem…

MEAM Seminar: “Origami Micro, Bio, and Nanosystems “

November 19 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Wu and Chen Auditorium (Room 101), Levine Hall, 3330 Walnut Street

Due to the inherent planarity of conventional micro and nanofabrication, it is challenging to pattern and assemble micro, bio, and nano-materials and devices in all three dimensions. Origami inspired mechanical assembly by curving, bending, and folding of appropriately designed micro and nanopatterned precursors provides a high-throughput solution to address this challenge. In this talk, I will discuss how the engineering of thin film differential-stress, capillary forces, and swelling can be used to mechanically shape materials and devices in 3D. I…
