Self-Shedding Surfaces Self-Shedding Surfaces

What to do when functional surfaces fail? When catheters become contaminated with microorganisms or sensors no longer react? Until now, the answer was: remove and replace. The chemist Dr. Karen Lienkamp has received a 1.49 million euros Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) to develop an alternative approach. In the future, medical devices or sensors made from functional polymers may be able to “shed” their surface when they are exhausted, allowing them to regenerate and be reused.
