[SHOW NOTES] Biomimetic and Bioinspired Materials

In this episode, we discussed how biology can inspire new designs and future technology.

Listen to the episode here

We mentioned one inspiring female scientist, Neri Oxman, who leads a research group at MIT that combines material science, biology, and design to create works of art and futuristic designs using bioinspired materials. Find out more here

We discussed some examples of studies that have utilised bioinspired/biomimetic approaches:

“Chemical syntheses of bio inspired and biomimetic polymers towards biobased materials” M. Ganewatta 2021

“Hierarchically structured bioinspired nanocomposites“ D. Nepal (2022)

“The living interface between synthetic biology and biomaterial design“ A.P. Lui (2022)
