New Therapies May Arise from Novel 4D Printing Method

Scientists at the Advanced Science Research Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY (CUNY ASRC) and Northwestern University say they have created a 4D printer capable of constructing patterned surfaces that recreate the complexity of cell surfaces. The technology, detailed in a paper “Polymer brush hypersurface photolithography,” in Nature Communications, allows scientists to combine organic chemistry, surface science, and nanolithography to construct precisely designed nanopatterned surfaces that are decorated with delicate organic or biological molecules, according to the team.
