Maria Papp 11/8/10 ECS 101 Dr. Darling HW #5 Mather Research Group- Shape Memory Biomaterials 1.) Some practical applications of shape memory polymers that the Mather Research Group demonstrated would included cardiovascular stents and . Cardiovascular stents are used for opening arteries that have blockages in order to keep blooding flowing. 2.) Elec trospinning works by taking a liquid and combining it with a reactant and then creating extremely small fibers by streaming it out of syringe. The liquid hardens when it is jetted out of the syringe.

3.) “Electrospinning of Polymeric Nanofibers: Analysis of Jet Formation” is one of the Mather Research Group Publications. This piece discusses the process of making polymer fibers using high voltages and jet initiation. It explains the different equations used and measurements of density, viscosity, etc. Ren Research Group- Biofilms 1.) Biofilms create closed “communities” for bacteria to live and grow. In these sections, the bacteria adapt and change. They grow stronger and more resistant. They are able to
