Nurturing Nature: Improving Health with Biomaterials
This event has passed.
Tuesday, February 22, 2022 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Moderator: • Stefan Zauscher, Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Director of the Duke Materials Initiative, Pratt School of Engineering Speakers: • Matt Becker, Hugo L. Blomquist Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, Trinity College of Arts & Sciences • Tatiana Segura, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Pratt School of Engineering • Malcolm DeBaun, Assistant Professor of Orthpaedic Surgery, School of Medicine
Through the exploration of a wide array of biological phenomena, Duke scientists unlock discoveries that lead to new bio-inspired materials that can help the body heal faster and better-or even replace joints and limbs injured or ravaged by cancer. Learn about new biomaterials from materials scientists and biomedical engineers in the Pratt School of Engineering and their collaborators in Trinity College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Medicine.
