Smart Biomaterials for Self-Adjusting Implants

There is a need to leverage ongoing research on active materials (e.g., self-regenerating body armor, insulin-releasing polymers that respond to glucose, etc.) to stimulate the invention of new materials and constructs that are electrically, chemically and mechanically active to enable self-adjusting bioengineered implants.
