    2018627日上午,应实验室徐峰教授邀请,乔治.华盛顿大学Dr. Lijie Grace Zhang来访,并在生命学院作了题为“Advanced 3D/4D Bioprinting and Nanomaterials for Complex Tissue Regeneration”的学术报告。报告在生命学院308会议室举行,实验室下设仿生工程与生物力学中心的师生聆听了报告。


      报告中,Dr. Zhang首先讲述了组织与器官修复的传统治疗法并指出该领域的种种挑战;随后详细介绍了其研究团队通过3D技术构建血管支架、心肌贴片与神经支架,涉及到多聚材料、纳米材料等选择;其次,明确4D打印即以3D打印为基础并加入时间轴的概念后,Dr. Zhang展示了不同的4D打印智能材料随时间产生形状改变,并阐述了其潜在应用;报告的最后,Dr. Zhang与实验室师生进行了热情互动,细致耐心地回答了多个问题,参加报告的师生均受益匪浅
