A collaborative research team from City University of New York (NY, USA) and Northwestern University (IL, USA) has developed a nanoscale 4D printing platform for the construction of intricate nanopatterned surfaces incorporating biological molecules. A collaborative research team from City University of New York (NY, USA) and Northwestern University (IL, USA) has developed a nanoscale 4D printing platform for the construction of intricate nanopatterned surfaces incorporating biological molecules. Described in Nature Communications, the team reports that by changing the materials and molecules used, the 4D-printed surfaces can have multiple contexts for use including applications in pharmaceutical R&D, biosensor development and optics.
