演講摘要

Biomaterials are becoming increasingly important in biomedical practice, particularly as the population ages. Because the human body is made up of hierarchies of nanostructures of biological molecules, cells, and tissues, it is clear that biological responses to materials depend on structural properties of the material at the nanometer scale. Recently, a considerable number of studies have been conducted on designing of novel materials to meet these applications. Some special types of polymers, for example, have emerged as a very useful class of polymers and have their own special chemical properties and applications in various areas. These polymers are coined with different names, based on their physical or chemical properties like, ‘stimuli-responsive’ or smart’ polymers. In this lecture, I will introduce some of recent example of smart polymer technologies in biomedical field such as anti-cancer nanofiber meshes, shape-memory medical devices, and anti-inflammatory materials.
