Chemistry Shorts Video: Under the Skin

The Chemistry Shorts film series shows the vital role the chemical sciences play in the biggest issues facing the world. Each film is accompanied by a lesson plan to integrate the science behind these innovations into the classroom.

AIChE member Zhenan Bao of Stanford University is featured in a video titled Under the Skin.

Zhenan Bao's lab has chemically developed a new class of synthetic polymers to create a highly functional replication of human skin. The synthetic skin can stretch like rubber, carry electricity, and self-heal. Learn more about this research at Bao Research Group.
