Inkjet Printing Biomaterials

Inkjet Printing Biomaterials.  We incorporate inkjet printing to build custom protein based materials. As part of the materials design, our group formulates de novo inks and examines their fluid physical properties to ensure the proteins remain stable in solution prior to printing. Next, we create a unified chemical, mechanical, electrical, and biological platform to assay material performance. Based on the bulk structure and composition of the printed materials, they can be used for applications including catalysis, diagnostic assays, flexible displays, or implantable sensors.
