Arizona State University Pioneering Biomimicry Programmes

A small aquatic snail may pave the way for the development of a lightweight, resilient material, shrimps could be the source of solar cells and the discipline is producing almost daily headlines with announcements of new designs inspired by nature. There could hardly be a better time to open a Biomimicry center and Arizona State University (ASU) has done just that.

Biomimicry has long been a part of ASU’s research portfolio with pioneering work in the discipline being produced out of the Phoenix-based university. Previous activities have included the development of bio-inspired materials and mimicking photosynthesis in the laboratory to convert sunlight into energy.
