Abstract

Shape memory polymers and their composites as biomaterials have received broad attention in various applications due to their unique advantages of stimuli responsive shape, displacement, strain and stress adaptiveness. With the advancement of knowledge, science and technology in materials design, fabrication and characterization, a wide variety of shape memory polymeric materials can be engineered for tissue regeneration, soft robotics, cellular manipulation, 4D printing, smart medical devices and minimally invasive implantation. The talk will first give a brief review on their recent progress in terms of cellular mechanisms, structural design and applications. Then the focus of the lecture will put on an innovative solvent-responsive coiling-expanding stent and their sister laminated structural materials.
