Blueprints from Biology
Engineers like Steven Naleway of the University of Utah are harnessing the hundreds of millions of years of design experience found in nature to understand how organisms thrive in their natural environments. Naleway uses the tools and techniques of engineering, chemistry, and physics as well as lessons learned from nature to develop designs and materials that benefit society.
Hear Naleway as he outlines how the interconnected fields of biological materials science and bioinspired design offer the potential to provide ingenious solutions to modern engineering problems.
