Engineering’s Rigoberto Advincula leads workshop on next generation of biomaterials

Night skyRigoberto Advincula, professor of macromolecular science and engineering, led a biomaterials workshop with the National Science Foundation this week in Arlington, Virginia.

Advincula led the effort in bringing a diverse community of academic and research institutions together to determine the next generation of biomaterials and the tools and foundry needed to advance the field.

The workshop had more than 50 participants who sought to generate a report to outline future opportunities and challenges in biomaterials including high risk and high pay-off ideas.

A grant from Case Western Reserve University through the Division of Materials Research funded the workshop.
