  Multi-Scale Biological Building Blocks and their Applications  
(Seminar/Conference)

Rajesh Naik, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base

Video simulcast from VTRC-Arlington

Increasing our knowledge about natural/biological materials and processes creates new opportunities in developing new classes of materials, processes and devices that perform similar functions to the biological system. While significant progress has been made, the potential future impact is only possible through the continued understanding of the underlying biological system and the utilization of these concepts to create complex materials, sensors and devices. Biological systems exemplify the utilization of highly specific recognition processes with a diverse set of building blocks for the synthesis and assembly of precisely defined (bio)materials. Consequently, these specialized biological processes and components are appealing for synthesis and as templates for creating hierarchically assembled structures and materials. In this talk I will highlight how biological building blocks, across multiple length scales, can be used create materials for electronics, sensing and structural applications. Additionally, I will also cover some recent work on the use of biopolymers for effective entrapment and stabilization of enzymes.

In collaboration with the NCR 'Meet the Program Manager' series
