SQI: Simpson Querry Institute

Advanced Materials

The design and synthesis of Advanced Materials is a core capability that underlies all of the investigative areas at the institute.

Synthetic Materials

Synthetic materials contribute to regenerative medicine by providing structure and guidance to stem cells. Targeted nanotherapeutics utilize man-made nanoparticles that can mimic natural structures and deliver molecular payloads. Conductive bio-resorbable materials have been developed that are flexible enough to minimize tissue damage and enable the integration of electronics with biological systems.

Real-World Applications

The potential for 3D printing to create useful, intricate, customized macrostructures has led us to incorporate unique materials into a printable, curable ink. By addressing experimental needs across a range of research areas, SQI is in a prime position to develop cutting-edge knowledge that enables the development of new, highly functional materials.
