Man-made manufacturing\, however\, is not able to match Nature’s building capabilities. My group focuses on closing this gap between nature-made and man-made structures by developing new multiscale\, multi-material\, and multimodal optics-based printers and processing technologies for applications in microfluidics\, organ-on-chip\, photonics\, durable hydrogels\, bioprinting\, and single cell applications. I strongly believe that a mutually reinforcing positive feedback between ‘technology’\, ‘applications’ and ‘scientific discovery’ is essential to drive bioscience forward. In this seminar\, I will present some methods developed in my group to shape soft hydrogels into smart multifunctional structures and devices. For more information please visit – .
