Symposium L

Bio-derived Materials: From Fundamentals to Applications

The Symposium will showcase the interdisciplinary approaches in the design and engineering of bio-derived materials using proteins, sugars (including DNA and carbohydrates), and lipids as the building blocks. The topic will span the design principles to understanding the assembly processes from the building blocks to the hierarchical structures to supramolecular structures across various length scales. Computational methods to aid rational designs and experimental method developments for characterizations will receive special attentions. Translation from the fundamental concepts to applications will be highlighted.

  • Novel bio-derived materials
  • Biocomposite and hybrid materials
  • Molecular engineering of bio-derived materials for improved properties
  • Characterization methods for investigating properties and behavior at interfaces
  • Modeling and computational methods for understanding assembly and rational design of structure and function.
  • Applications of bio-derived materials in various fields, including but not limited to medicine, health, electronics, environment, energy, water, military, and consumer products.
