Bio-inspired “Far From Equilibrium” Materials

Date: February 20, 2019

Time: 12:00PM - 01:30PM

You must be registered to participate!

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.
