Living organisms have engineered remarkable protein-based materials through billions of years of evolution. These multifunctional materials have unparalleled mechanical, optical, and electronic properties that have served as inspiration for scientists to study and mimic. The December, 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin covers the mechanical and rheological properties of structural protein materials and nanocomposites; advancements in the synthesis and assembly of optical, electronic, and nanoscale protein materials; and recent developments in the processing of protein materials using liquid-liquid phase separation and 3D printing.
This webinar will present three talks with authors from the MRS Bulletin issue. An interactive Q&A will be held with each of the speakers following their talks.
Proteins for Bio-Inspired Optical and Electronic Materials Sarah Glaven, Naval Research Lab Talk begins at 6:22
Liquid-Liquid Phase Separation of Protein and Peptides Derived from Biological Materials: Discovery, Protein Engineering, and Emerging Applications Ali Miserez, Nanyang Technological University Talk begins at 31:58
Engineered Proteins and Three-Dimensional Printing of Living Materials Anne Meyer, University of Rochester Talk begins at 1:00:41
