ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Objective: The objective of this workshop is to provide exposure to fundamental scientific concepts from various disciplines as they apply to biomimetics and biological soft matter. This interdisciplinary 4-day workshop will cover exciting topics that lie at the interface of materials, soft matter, biology and chemical engineering. Special emphasis will be given to the use of physical approaches to understand bio-soft matter.
Sessions: The sessions will cover biomimetic systems, biological soft matter, hierarchical organization motifs, principles of self-assembly and biological transport.
Application: Specific applications include biomimetic design, soft materials for protein/cell delivery, hydrogels for tissue engineering and hierarchical modeling in soft matter systems.
Outcome: The primary outcome of the workshop will be to learn key principles that will enable the design, creation and mimicry of soft materials that can interact with, and influence biological systems.
