Dr. Chen Lab 3D Prints Structures Capable of Growing Microscopic Algae

NanoEngineering Department Chair and Professor, Shaochen Chen and his research lab worked together with the University of Cambridge to 3D print coral-inspired structures that are capable of growing dense populations of microscopic algae. This advancement could lead to the development of more efficient bioreactors for producing algae-based biofuels, and new techniques to repair and restore coral reefs.  The study was in Nature Communications.
