Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications


Nanotechnology has been responsible for an unprecedented positive impact in healthcare advances, by merging fundamental and applied sciences as complementary tools envisioning an enhanced quality of life. Recently, a broader spectrum of high performance nanomaterials and material-based nanosystems has been engineered to address challenges in medical and health-related fields. At the same time, there has been a shift in importance from designing exclusively bioinert materials to instead producing complex bioactive building blocks for mimicking targeted functions.

The June, 2019 Journal of Materials Research (JMR) Focus Issue is devoted to the latest advances in biomedical nanomaterials, including: (i) different fabrication approaches and applications, (ii) design and characterization of novel biomedical materials and devices as well as their structure-property relationships with biological responses, and (iii) novel (bio)-nanomaterials as potential candidates to integrate multifunctional devices targeting self-assembly materials.

The talks in this webinar expanded on the material presented in the Focus Issue, and an interactive Q&A session was held with the speakers following each talk.

Talks:

  • Electrochemical single-step obtention and characterization of a biomimetic TiO2-Hydroxyapatite NTs covered by chitosan
    Giovanna Machado, CETENE
  • Nanostructured surface coatings for titanium alloy implants
    Pierre Layrolle & Guy Louarn, University of Nantes
  • Assessing the Influence of Silkworm Cocoons’ age on the physico-chemical properties of silk-based materials
    Marisa Beppu, University of Campinas

Acoustic Processes in Materials


The coupling of acoustic energy with materials structures and processes is at the core of current and emerging application areas, such as ultrasound-enabled materials characterization, structuring, and processing. High concentration of acoustic energy has been shown to provide conditions for the synthesis of unusual material phases and structures, while reports on acoustic activation of surface diffusion, desorption, and catalysis hold high promise for applications where heating must be avoided or rapid switching of surface conditions is required. Some of the recent scientific and technical advances in the general area of acoustically enabled material synthesis, processing, and characterization are reviewed in the May, 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin.

The talks in this webinar expanded on the MRS Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A session was held with the speakers following each talk.

Talks:

  • Materials Synthesis in a Bubble
    Alfred Vogel, University of Luebeck
  • Transient Grating Spectroscopy: An Ultrarapid, Nondestructive Materials Evaluation Technique
    Cody A. Dennett, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Acoustic Activation of Surface Processes - Desorption, Catalysis, and Diffusion
    Henry Helvajian, The Aerospace Corporation

Self-Assembled Porphyrin and Macrocycle Derivatives


The March 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin focused on recent developments in porphyrin nanomaterials, and their applications in energy harvesting and biomedicine. Porphyrins are plane macrocyclic molecules containing four pyrroles connected in ring fashion through four methine carbons at their α-positions. They are present in almost all living organisms in one form or another, such as chlorophyll and heme. Porphyrins are important participants in the energy supply system for both earth and life, in the forms of photosynthesis and oxygen transport. Porphyrin nanostructures can be synthesized by self-assembly methods and have various applications including in solar-energy harvesting, water splitting, environmental pollutant reduction, and nanomedicine for tumor therapy.


This webinar expanded on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A was held with each of the speakers following their talks.

Networking for Nerds: Create Your Dream Career!


Wanna land your dream job? Get ready to network! Most jobs and other game-changing career opportunities are not advertised, and even if they are, there is usually a short-list of candidates already in mind. So how do you find out about and access the 90% of jobs and other opportunities that are "hidden"? In this webinar, we will focus on proven networking strategies and tactics to identify new opportunities, locate decision-makers within organizations, solidify your reputation and brand in the minds of those who hire, and gain access to hidden jobs and game-changing opportunities. Discover how networking and appropriate self-promotion can enable you to land or even create your dream job from scratch!

Bio-inspired “Far From Equilibrium” Materials


The creation of new materials capable of performing life-like functions inspired by biology, such as complex and cooperative processes, self-replication, and self-repair, will ultimately rely upon incorporating biological principles of spatiotemporal modes of self-assembly. Elucidating fundamental principles for the design of such out-of-equilibrium dynamic self-assembling materials systems is the focus of the February, 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin.

This webinar expanded on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A was held with each of the speakers following their talks.

Mechanical Behavior of Nanocomposites


By engineering the length scales, morphology, crystallography and chemistry of interfaces, nanocomposites can deliver mechanical properties that exceed what could be achieved from a single-phase material alone. The January, 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin  highlights recent developments in mechanics of nanocomposites that are composed of a combination of metallic, polymer, biological, and ceramic materials and outline the challenges and opportunities for future research directions.

This webinar expanded on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A was held with each of the speakers following their talks.

Piezotronics and Piezophototronics


Piezotronics and piezophototronics are two newly coined fields for third-generation semiconductors that actively couple the strain-induced polarization potential with the mobile charge carrier transport behavior. The fundamental effects are likely to impact the design and fabrication of electronic and photonic devices for mechanosensation, human-machine interfacing, robotics, artificial intelligence, sensors, LEDs, solar cells, and catalysis. The December, 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin highlights the progress made in these two fields.

This webinar will expand on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A will be held with each of the speakers following their talks.

3D Printing of Biomaterials


3D Printing has revolutionized most manufacturing sectors by significantly reducing time to produce elements and minimizing cost related to manufacturing parts with higher complexity. The focus is no longer on low-quality plastic parts that are primarily used for ‘touch and feel’ or design validation, but on functional components of metals, ceramics, polymers,and composites that are now routinely manufactured using 3DP and used in almost all sectors from space to toys to biomedical devices. 3DP-related businesses have grown to multi-billion dollar enterprises around the world, and the growth rate continues to rise for most manufacturing sectors worldwide. However, application of 3DP in biomedical devices is still relatively new and only recently have regulatory bodies in different countries begun to approve 3D-printed devices for human use.

This webinar highlights work presented in the Journal of Materials Research Focus Issue on 3D Printing of Biomaterials. An interactive Q&A was held with each of the speakers following their talks.
