About the Workshop
The purpose of this workshop is to review the advanced materials and manufacturing and explore how cutting-edge Engineered Living Systems to advance carbon-negative manufacturing and engineering workforce development for the needs of a responsive, resilient, and sustainable built environment.
The workshop will focus on the following topics through presentations and small-group discussions:
- Advanced Materials: advances in materials science and synthetic biology, biomineralized materials, extreme environment ceramics, engineered living materials, materials for sustainable built environment.
- Manufacturing and Characterization: biomineralization and 3D printing from the nano to the macro scale, in-situ and operando characterization.
- Outreach: including training, workshops, and expanding access for under-represented groups and researchers, STEM education.
The workshop is supported by NSF grant # 2217499, Shenqiang Ren (Principal Investigator), Co-Principal Investigators: Hao Yan (ASU), Yiquan Wu (Alfred), Martin Trebbin (UB).
