With this microfluidic device, researchers modeled how sickled blood cells clog the spleen’s filters, leading to a potentially life-threatening condition.
We call upon the attention of related research communities to highlight their cutting-edge initiatives to address key materials and mechanics problems presented in engineered nanomaterials for energy and environmental applications, and equally important to propose potential new applications with the latest understanding of the nanomechanics and recent developments in nanomaterial engineering.
Four prominent scientists presented their exciting research for a more environmentally friendly and energy efficient future.
