Chemistry Shorts Video: Under the Skin

1/7   in the series Chemistry Shorts Video Series

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.
