Bionanotechnology (22b)

#705 - Nanostructured Biomimetic and Biohybrid Materials and Devices (22B11)
Papers within this session will focus on topics such as biological based materials, biomolecule containing hybrid structures, and artificial materials that mimic physiochemical properties and interactions of biological molecules. The session will highlight research involving rational design of self-assembling protein systems, designed peptides to form responsive systems and recognition materials, and tailored network structures mimicking biological structure and design. Of particular interest are the uses of nanostructured and nanoscale materials in the development of novel therapeutic, diagnostic, or tissue engineering devices.
