Nanofabulous Seminar: Nature meets Nanotechnology: Development of Novel Bio-composites from Renewable Resources
Proteins form the very basis of life. They regulate various activities in all known organisms, from replication of the genetic code to transporting oxygen, and are responsible for regulating the cellular machinery and determining the phenotype of an organism.
From a material science point of view, proteins can serve as excellent building blocks for developing new structures, composites, and novel materials. In this talk, I will cover some of our efforts in this direction, demonstrating our bottom-up technology to form various new materials, including light-emitting devices, photothermal materials, smart-wound dressing, antibacterial coating, heavy-metal sorption materials, and more. The role of Jellyfish, an important renewable resource for many of our applications, will be discussed.
