Advanced biopolymers are polymers that occur in nature and that can be engineered in forms that bring new functions to the natural materials. Silk fibroin, cellulose, collagen, keratin, DNA, elastin, mucin, suckerin are just few examples of these materials. Recent advances in biopolymers processing have set the foundations for their uses in agriculture, edible and implantable photonics and electronics devices, along with classical applications in the biomedical field. This reinvention of biopolymers in advanced materials originates from their innate ability to serve at the biotic/abiotic interface, nanostructured nature, assembly in multiscale, hierarchical architectures, low-energy processing, and ease of functionalization with doping agents. This symposium will bring together the most recent advances in the modeling, characterization and fabrication of biopolymers with their applications as advanced materials where engineered forms meet designed functions.
