  • Self-Improving Microvascular Materials

    December 8, 2015

    Aaron Esser-Kahn, Assistant Professor from University of California, Irvine, will discuss his initial efforts to develop a simple synthetic morphogenetic system that repatterns microvascular materials using dynamic covalent chemistry of siloxanes. He will demonstrate that his synthetic system improves the function of materials by altering microstructure
